Otter Lodge Poles Sticking


Recommended Posts

As with many of these topics I know this one has been talked about before. I just cannot find the posts that talk about it. I have an otter lodge portable with the square poles. Looking for a solution to make them slide a little easier. I should mention they are otter's first design of square poles. I want something that will not make a mess or leave marks all over my tarp. I believe someone mentioned liquid graphite or teflon spray. Please point me to the posts or give me your ideas. I have checked and there are no metal burrs exposed that would cause problems.

I had the same issues with the center set of poles in my resort. It started as one side of it sticking then the other, I undid the velcro and the screws holding it at the pivot point and removed the whole piece, layed it on a table and found that there was a slight bend to both parts that slide out. bent them straight and lubed with silicone spray and reinstaled to find no problems.
