Model: Front Porch Tent
HKD Model: KMT162010
KMT162010 11/15
CLEANING:
Allow dirt to dry on the fabric after a rainfall before lightly
sweeping it off with a brush. For tougher stains, spray the area
with water and lightly wipe it off with a few strokes. Do not use
washer or dryer. DO NOT SCRUB THE FABRIC. ALWAYS MAKE
SURE IT IS COMPLETELY DRY BEFORE REPACKING.
WARNING!
DANGER!
Stoves, lanterns, candles, grills, heaters and other fuel-burning
devices produce carbon monoxide and will consume the
available oxygen in a tent. Use of such devices in a tent may
cause asphyxiation, carbon monoxide poisoning, and death or
serious and permanent injuries. For this reason:
- DO NOT use fuel-burning devices inside or near this product.
- Your failure to follow this warning may cause death or serious
and permanent injury to you or others.
6-Month REPLACEMENT PARTS WARRANTY
This product carries a replacement parts warranty against defects
in materials and workmanship for a period of 6-month from date
of purchase. At its discretion, the manufacturer may provide
replacement parts. Original purchaser will be required to provide
proof of purchase. The consumer will be responsible for shipping
costs incurred outside of the US or Canada.
Warranties DO NOT cover normal wear and tear, misuse, abuse,
inclement weather conditions (i.e. wind, rain, hail, lightning,
tornados or hurricanes) or other acts of God, mildew and rotting,
damage or fading caused by prolonged exposure to UV rays. This
warranty gives you specific legal rights. You may also have other
rights which vary from state to state.
Under no circumstances shall the manufacturer be liable for
any incidental or consequential damages.
The tent is water-repellent. It is not, however, waterproof. During
heavy or continuous rain, some leakage may occur. Avoid contact
between objects and the inside of the tent, as this may result in
leakage at points of contact. In the event of seam leakage, apply
a seam-sealer compound.
Although our products are manufactured according to rigorous
specifications, periods of wind or rain may loosen the stakes and
cause the frame to sink into the ground. This will weaken the
structure’s overall rigidity. Puddles may also form on the roof if
the unit has not been assembled tightly. If pooling should occur
it is advisable to drain the fly to avoid possible damage to frame
and fabric. Adjustment of guy lines may be necessary. In case of
inclement weather remove valuables and seek appropriate
shelter. Intended for recreational use only.
For your tent, screen house or canopy DO NOT...
- Pitch near an open fire.
- Use candles or open flames of any kind in or near.
- Leave children unattended inside.
- Use fuel-burning, oxygen-consuming devices (heaters, lanterns,
cooking stoves or other flame sources) inside.
- Refuel lamps, heaters or stoves inside.
- Smoke inside.
- Store flammable liquids inside.
- Use water-repellent compounds other than those recommended
for use on outdoor equipment.
- Spray with insecticide.
- Store on concrete floor.
For your tent, screen house or canopy DO...
- Always extinguish campfire before sleeping or leaving the area.
- Exercise care when using electricity and lighting.
- Make certain it is properly ventilated in all weather conditions.
In extreme weather conditions, snow could obstruct airflow and
cause asphyxiation. Clear frequently.
- Anchor securely to provide additional security in changing
climatic conditions. Snow pegs, skis and/or heavy rocks may be
necessary to supplement stakes and guy lines.
- Take down and store properly after camping.
- KEEP ALL FLAME AND HEAT SOURCES AWAY FROM THIS
FABRIC. This product is made with flame-resistant fabric,
which meets CPAI-84 specifications. IT IS NOT FIREPROOF!
The fabric will burn if left in continuous contact with any
flame source. The application of any foreign substance to the
fabric may render the flame-resistant properties ineffective.
- Anchor properly at all times and carefully consider campsite
choice. Be aware of possible falling rocks or tree limbs,
lightning strikes, flash floods, strong winds and other hazards
which may cause harm to this product or its occupants.
- Have a minimum of two adults for assembly. During assembly
poles are under tension. If not held firmly in place during
assembly, poles could break or flip up, possibly causing
serious injury.
- Safety glasses may be worn throughout the assembly
process as an additional precaution.
- Exercise care when using electric devices in and near tents.

The key to an enjoyable camping experience is planning and
preparation.
Before you go …

possible weather condition. Be aware of hazards and emergency
protocol. Know the rules and regulations.
Check out your equipment before your trip. Be sure your cook
stove, lanterns, flashlights, air mattress, etc. are in good working
order. Erect your tent to become familiar with setup. Once
you’ve assembled your tent in a dry, well-ventilated area, apply
seam sealing compound to the stitching of the inside seams
following manufacturer’s directions. Allow to dry thoroughly
before storage. Reapply annually.
Checklists are great planning tools. Here are some areas to

gradable soap. Store your food in lockers or out of sight in
vehicles.
Clothing: Be prepared for all your activities. Include a hat,
sunglasses and quality socks. Dress in layers.
Hygiene: Personal toiletries, rubber gloves, basic first aid items.

TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE
PROBLEM
1. CONDENSATION
2. SEAM LEAKAGE
3. MILDEW
4. REPAIRING A TEAR
5. FAULTY ZIPPER
6. FADING FABRIC
7. FLOOR CONDENSATION
This is caused by lower temperatures on the outside of the tent combined with body heat on the inside of the tent. When this occurs, avoid touching walls to reduce
contact leakage. Leaving the doors and windows open will reduce moisture condensation. Store wet clothing outside of tent. Not applicable to screen houses.
Apply a generous amount of seam sealer on inside seams. Seam sealer may be purchased at any local sporting goods store.
To avoid mildew, store tent/screen house ONLY when thoroughly dry. However, if mildew occurs use a soft bristle brush or sponge with mild dishwashing soap or Fels
Naptha soap to clean. Let dry thoroughly and a tent approved water repellent compound may be applied.
For small tears use a self-adhesive patch kit. We recommend a canvas or awning repair shop for larger tears.
Zippers are self repairing. If the zipper separates, you can move the slider to the beginning of the zipper tape and rework the zipper.
Do not leave up in direct sunlight longer than necessary. If left in sunlight for prolonged periods of time, fabric will fade and weaken.
A ground cloth under the floor helps prolong its life, provides additional insulation and moisture protection. The cloth should be smaller than the floor to prevent rain
from running under the tent. Not applicable to screen houses.
8. USE OF STAKES Stakes should be installed at a 45 degree angle using a hammer or mallet. Stake loops should be kept taut without over stretching fabric or webbing. This could cause
tears or leakage. To remove safely, use a hammer or stake puller. Do not remove by pulling on the fabric.
