How to Rethread Resort Range Pole


I'm Peta from Outdoor Connection. Today I'm going to show you how to re-thread your Resort Range Pole from pieces to this.

You can use this method for any pole. The significance of our Resort Range Pole is that it does have a bent ferrule and sometimes people think that's a bit hard to thread. It's not. You'll see.

What I start with is a length of shock cord. Needle and thread. In our case we've got commercial thread which makes things a lot easier. You can use regular thread. Just be careful not to put it under too much tension. A pen. There's a good reason for the pen which you'll see. And our poles. So, if you've got a pole that is intact, use that to find out which section goes where.

So, the first thing we're going to do is take the shop cord and put a double knot in one end. Leave a bit of a tail. You don't want it to be too close to the end because otherwise the knot could come and done once it's in the pole. 

On the other end. Take your needle and thread and just push it through the shock cord. Pull it all the way through.

Leave a little bit of a tail and tie that off. Trim that tail back. If it's that too far it'll make it a little bit hard to get through the pole.

Okay. We're ready. We're going to start with the top section. A bit that goes up into the roof. Drop the needle into the pole. And you'll see it come straight through. 

Take the next section and repeat.It looks like the shock cord won’t do this pole. It will there is plenty.

If it gets stuck and it doesn't move real freely just give the pole a tap. It should move down fairly well.

Here is where the pen is going to come in handy. I'm going to pull that through, as tight as I can. I'm going to create a little loop and slide the pen through. That'll stop it springing back through its very frustrating when that happens. Speaking from experience, and then keep going.  Doing the same down here now.

Okay. So, I'm going to leave the pen in the pole because if I accidentally let go of this bit, it only goes back to there and I don't have to re thread the whole thing.

So now that I'm here, I'm going to take my scissors, I'm going to trim that off. I'm going to do another big fat double knot. I'm going to trim a little bit of this hair off but make sure you don't do it too close. Remove our pen. 

And there we have a re-thread pole, easy.
