Description
SAFETY
12’ x 12’ Classic Series Frame Tent, 1 Piece
The Classic Series Frame tent is a tent which utilizes a simple frame to
support the tent top, maximizing the usable space available underneath
the tent. All Classic Series Frame tents use West Coast Style frames and
fittings, making them interchangeable with all other frames and fittings
in this style. Frame tents need to be staked to the ground or otherwise
anchored for maximum stability.
Suggested Equipment
Drop cloth or ground cloth, sledge hammer, or electric / gas breaker hammer fitted with stake driver bit,
stake puller, and frame tent jack/ lift.

SITE SELECTION
12’ x 12’ Classic Series Frame Tent
www.GetTent.com / www.CelinaTent.com
© 2013 Celina Tent Inc.
CONTACTS
Site selection is extremely important. The installer must adhere to local building codes and fire regulations. The
installer must evaluate each installation site and determine the proper securing and anchoring method and
device appropriate for the conditions. Some soils require different staking or securing methods than what may
be/have been purchased with the standard tent package. Celina Tent’s instructions, YouTube videos, and Layout
Handbook summarize all the functions of each product, the rules for using them and suggestions for their use.
However, field situations, site conditions, weather and local experience may mandate other methods. Review
the following conditions at the proposed site and plan accordingly.
The best site qualities are:
• Location: Elevated, level, and clear of debris
• Soil Conditions: Adequate for stable anchoring
• Space: Adequate space for the perimeter and stake lines
• Surface Type: Grass, Gravel, Concrete, Asphalt, Wood
• Site Access: Materials and services can easily be delivered to the site
Also allow for:
• Overhead Obstructions: Electrical/telephone lines, tree branches
• Underground Utilities: Electric, Gas, Oil, Steam, Telephone, CATV, Water, Sewer
• Weather Effects: Monitor for extreme weather conditions and evacuate if necessary
• Emergency Exit Capabilities: Provide evacuation routes in case of a fire or bad weather
MAINTENANCE
Since weather is unpredictable, the installer/end user must incorporate their own judgment, common sense and
knowledge of local conditions with the installation instruction guidelines. The installer is responsible for anticipating weather severity for proper time and method of installation.
• Rain:
Rain water can collect on the tent fabric and cause ‘ponding’ or ‘water pocketing’ under certain weather conditions, especially if the tent is not installed and tensioned correctly. The additional weight
from the water will cause the tent to sag and ponding will continue to get worse. The weight can destroy the
tent fabric and/or cause the poles and baseplates to sink into the soil. Highly saturated soil will cause the
stakes to lose their holding power.
• Wind:
Wind or wind and rain can cause the tension of the tent to change by loosening ratchet
assemblies, pulling stakes, and or causing the poles to shift or sink. It is very important to do routine maintenance checks and maintain proper tension on the tent top at all times especially if weather conditions are
such that ratchets are beginning to loosen.
• Lightning:
Immediately evacuate the tent until the chance of a lightning strike is no longer present.
• Snow: Tents, canopies, structures, and shelters are not designed to carry any type of snow loading. These
products should not be used if snow of any kind is present, and must be evacuated immediately.

STAKING / ANCHORING
Before You Stake
SAFETY
By law you are required to contact your local “Call before you dig” number before you plan to dig or drive tent
stakes / anchors. After calling, your local utility companies will mark the location of all underground utility lines.
Laws from state to state vary on how far in advance you must call. Planning ahead and checking with your state’s
program is always a smart idea. Failure to obtain a utility line location before digging can result in a substantial
fine or serious injury. Please find your local “call before your dig number” in the contacts section of this manual.
Prior to staking, be sure that no underground utilities are present. Celina is not responsible for methods that installers may choose to erect and secure the tent, canopy, structure, or shelter to the site surface. Celina’s responsibility is limited to the manufacture of the tent parts and materials. It is the installer’s responsibility,
not Celina’s, to determine the appropriate number of stakes to meet the necessary wind loads on the installation
site.
The number of stakes suggested in this manual routinely does not meet the relevant local codes of
the installation site. The number of stakes included in the standard kit will, in most cases, keep the tent, canopy,
structure, or shelter setup. Due to various soil conditions the standard staking kit may be inadequate to keep the
tent secure in high winds and wet or threatening weather. Regardless of the number of stakes included in standard kits, Celina makes no representation or warranty as to whether this is sufficient to meet the requirements
for your installation site(s).
INSTALLATION
Soil and setup conditions can vary greatly between installation sites. It is the installer’s responsibility to be sure the staking is adequate for each site on each setup. Additional staking, tiebacks, and/or stake
bars may be required in order to safely setup and secure the product.
Staking Basics
Stakes driven vertically have a greater holding strength than stakes
driven at an angle. Vertically is defined as straight up down or angled up to 10° away from the tent, canopy, structure, or shelter.
6” or less
MAINTENANCE
A properly driven stake will have 6” or less of the head exposed.
The deeper that the stake is driven, the greater holding strength the
stake will have. Anchoring stakes must be driven deep and vertical.
6” or less

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
Set Up Instructions
3. Connect the rest of the tubing in the following order:
a. Corner fittings to hip rafters (8’4” white)
b. Spreaders (11’4” white) to corner fittings
4. Fasten the loop strap (B) around the fitting at each leg location.
5. Roll out a drop cloth to protect the tent from dirt and abrasions next to the frame and unroll the tent top. Pull
the tent top over the frame, lifting up on the fabric or “flapping” it to create a cushion of air.
7. Attach the base plates to the legs (6’8” brown, or 7’8” black), securing with a pin.
MAINTENANCE
6. Loosely fasten 2 alligator straps at each corner around the perimeter tubing to secure the tent top.
INSTALLATION
2. Connect the 4-way crown to the hip rafters (8’4” white):
a. Each protrusion on the crown has two holes; one closer to the center (the alignment hole) and one further down the protrusion (the placement hole).
b. Place a pin in the alignment hole; this keeps the rafter from moving too far onto the crown. Slide the tubing onto the protrusion until it meets the pin.
c. Align the placement hole in the crown with the hole in the rafter and insert a pin.
d. Remove the alignment hole pin. (*This procedure applies to all frame fittings)
SAFETY
1. Layout the frame parts on the ground in the approximate location that they will be when the frame is assembled.
(See parts / minimum staking layout diagram)
8. In windy conditions, locate the downwind side of the tent to lift first; this keeps the wind from catching the tent.

CONTACTS
9. Step on the base plate to free both hands and lift one side of the tent frame. Do not lift one corner at a time;
lift the entire side of the tent. Insert corner fittings into the top of the leg, securing with a pin. Insert all pins from
the outside in; this keeps the protruding section of the pin from puncturing the tent fabric.
PG.7
INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
10. While the tent is still low to the ground fasten the rest of the alligator straps around the perimeter tubing.
12. Center the tent top on the frame by hiding the seams behind the hip rafters and tightening the straps. Guide
excess strap through the metal slide on the alligator clip.
SAFETY
11. Repeat with the other side of the tent.
13. Place stakes 5’ out from each leg; drive stakes into the ground so that approximately 6” or less of the stake
is showing.
14. Attach ratchet straps or ropes to the stakes (ratchet assemblies are standard on all Celina Classic Series
Frame Tents):
Ropes: Attach the rope around the fitting at each leg location. Tie the bottom end of the rope to the stake using a Double Loop Clove Hitch Knot - Gripping the rope down
from the grommet in your left hand, take the opposite end and create two loops that overlap. Move the first loop (located on the bottom) so that it slightly overlaps on
top of the second; put loops over the stake through the center gap created by the overlapping loops. Pull tight with the excess rope.
MAINTENANCE
Ropes
15. Roll excess ratchet straps and secure into the ratchet buckle.
Sidewall Rope Tensioning: For new tents and during its life cycle, it may be necessary to tighten the sidewall
support rope that runs the perimeter of the tent top. After the tent has been set up and tensioned, locate the
corner where the sidewall rope starts and stops. Securely tie off one end of the rope. While pulling against the
tie-off point, work your way around the perimeter of the tent, pulling out any unnecessary rope slack. Tie off the
opposite end of the rope once reached.

16. The tent top should now be complete. If sidewalls are desired, unroll the sidewalls between the stakes and
the legs around the perimeter of the tent. Starting at a leg, clip the sidewall snap hooks to the rope line that is
attached to the tent top.
12’ x 12’ Classic Series Frame Tent
INSTALLATION
Ratchets: Attach the ratchet buckle with loop strap (A) to the stakes by turning the 6” loop at the end of the
ratchet inside out and pull the strap through the loop to create a noose and pull tight over the stake. Take the
loop strap (B) attached to the tent and pull it through the reel bars slot of the ratchet (ratchet buckle needs to
have handle facing upward at all time) and pull the loop strap (B) back towards the tent approximately 1 ½ feet.
Hold the strap at this point with one hand and begin to crank the ratchet handle back and forth.
PG.8
INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
Striking Instructions
2. Unfasten all anchoring devices and alligator straps from the perimeter tubing (with the exception of 2 at each
corner).
3. Remove 2 corner legs from one side and carefully set the tent frame on the ground.
SAFETY
1. Loosen all ratchet strap assemblies.
4. Repeat with opposite side.
5. Unfasten the rest of the straps, completely disconnecting the tent top from the frame and stakes.
6. Roll out a drop cloth next to the frame.
8. Fold and roll the tent top as tight as possible. Remember not to stand or walk on the tent top fabric.
10. Fold and roll up the drop cloth.
11. Disassemble all of the corner and center crown fittings by removing the pins and sliding the tubing off of the
fittings. Work from the perimeter of the frame inward.
12. Remove all stakes.
MAINTENANCE
9. Bagging (always use a drop cloth to protect the tent top from dirt and abrasions while bagging):
a. For Wrap-Around Tent Bag:
i. Lay the bag next to the tent top with the side-release buckles facing down. Roll the tent top onto the center of the bag.
ii. Connect the two short male and female side-release buckles; pull tight.
iii. Connect the remaining side-release buckle and pull tight.
b. For Round-Bottom Bag:
i. Place the folded tent top into the upright vertical position.
ii. Pull the round bottom tent bag over the upright tent top.
iii. Turn the tent top and bag over, pull the draw string tight and tie off.
INSTALLATION
7. Carefully remove the tent top from the frame, lifting up on the fabric or “flapping” it to create a cushion of air.

CPAI-84
BS 7837 (1996)
SAFETY
NFPA-701
BS 5438
ASTM D 6413
DIN 4102-B1
TENT CARE
For maximum life of Celina fabrics, Celina recommends regular cleaning with the use of a soft brush with neutral soaps or cleaners, such as Celina Cleaning Products, Ivory dish soap, or warm water. Thorough rinsing and
drying is required before storing the fabric.
Celina’s repair products provide an easy solution to tears, punctures, or holes. Repair kits and tools are available online at www.GetTent.com or by contacting Celina.

MAINTENANCE
Vinyl Repair
INSTALLATION
Things that will cause premature degradation and may reduce life expectancy of a tent:
• Improper handling during installation/dismantling on rough surfaces will create pinholes and abrasions.
ALWAYS USE A DROP CLOTH/GROUND CLOTH DURING INSTALLATION AND DISMANTLING.
• Walking on the fabric during installation/dismantling will create pinholes and abrasions.
• Extended use of the tent without cleaning
• Accumulation of dirt on the vinyl surface will promote the growth of mold and mildew and premature wear.
• Storage of vinyl that has not been dried thoroughly. Even a slightly damp product can promote the growth
of mildew when folded and stored. Mold and mildew may require harsh cleaners to remove, which may
cause premature wear. The best solution is to take every precaution to keep mold and mildew from growing
in the first place. NEVER STORE A TENT, CANOPY, STRUCTURE, OR SHELTER IN A WET OR DAMP CONDITION.
• Harsh detergents and cleaners, which contain a solvent or bleach. The longer the exposure of PVC vinyl to
these products, the more it will reduce the life of the PVC vinyl.
• High-abrasive cleaners, including wire brushes, power wasters and/or commercial washing machines will
result in premature wear and deterioration of tent fabrics.
• Wind whip – Loosely tensioned fabric that whips in the wind will damage over time.
