Step 1: Bring the essentials
Make sure of having all the necessary items you need. Bring the tent, support rods, rainfly, tent stakes, fiberglass, fiberglass poles, upright poles, etc. In most cases, the manufacturers provide all the required items along with the tent. Missing any of them will lead to a failure to have a toilet tent. Unpack all the elements and sort them into different sections. It will help you to find out the right item within no time while building the shelter.
Step 2: Find a perfect area
The area you will be placing the shelter should be flat and free of rocks. Get rid of all sharp objects, sticks, debris which can rip the tent cover. Next, unfold and lay it in the chosen location. If you bring a ground mat for the tent, set it on the ground first. Putting this barrier will prevent moisture and water penetration inside the room. If your tent is water-proof, you don’t have to worry about it.
Step 3: Connect the tent poles
The majority of the tent poles come in sections. You have to put them together. Don’t put the wrong parts together. Make sure to form a strong bond so that the poles will fit perfectly and won’t wobble. Again, there are also some models where the poles arrive in connected form.

Step 4: Assemble the mainframe
Well, this will vary according to the type of your tent. Some tents utilize simple design with two poles. The users have to unfold the tent and open the doors slightly. Then hold it upright with your hands. Separate the sides and extend them properly away from each other.
Then, you will notice two pole sleeves that require inserting support rods. Now push support rods inside the upper pole sleeve. Flip the tent carefully and do the same for the bottom pole sleeve. The simple and effortless installation will be complete.
But when it comes to pop-up versions, you don’t even face a little difficulty at all. As soon as you open it from the container, it will get into the shape itself. Hold the tent vertically and stretch the other half carefully.
At this point, you will see that an inner rod is keeping two sides sticking to the opened ones. Pull the inner rod towards your body and shake the tent slightly to spread the corners perfectly. The tent is now ready to use. Again, the campers may have utility shelters having more tent poles.
Firstly they need to secure the poles into their corresponding flaps or set them using plastic clips. Pay attention to which rods will fit the upper portion of the tent and which one will act as a support. Read the directions on the instruction manual and fit them correctly.
Step 5: Stake to the ground
Make the tent more stable by directing the metal stakes through the flaps of the bottom. Push them hard into the ground with hammers or another heavy object.
Step 6: Cover the top of the tent with the rain fly
All portable toilet tents aren’t water-proof. Many of them come with an included waterproof cover to protect it from rain and moisture. If so, place it on the top and secure with the support rods using additional clips or ties.
