I am gone back to an earlier version of rigging the hanging loop on my bamboo stand. The loop which holds the chainlink fence top rail ridepole works much better when it is hung from the lashings rather than wrapped around the poles.
I have used this stand many more times and continue to love it. It can be tricky to set up on a slick floor. A second person to help hold one end of the ridge pole until it is slipped into the second half eases the set up.
