AirLock (patent pending)
AirLock is 59% lighter than standard aluminum connectors with shock cord.
New, paradigm-shifting AirLock pole connectors enhance the performance of carbon tent frames and eliminate heavier shock cord. Patent-pending AirLock utilizes precision inserts with a short monofilament tether to keep pole sections in sequence. AirLock's unique fitment increases the strength of every connection point and the modular design makes quick field repair possible. Optimized for Easton carbon-fiber poles, AirLock connectors outperform standard inserts and save weight at the same time.
The ideal material for tent pole frames, carbon is extremely lightweight and strong with a strength-toweight ratio five times that of steel and 60% more resilient to permanent deflection than aluminum poles.
AirLock connects pole sections with a simple, positive snap
AirLock connectors work in concert with carbon poles to create a lighter, stronger tent. AirLock's construction starts with an advanced aluminum/carbon composite insert tube. This precision-built core is machined to a high-tolerance fitment that mates to pressure-molded high strength Delrin receivers. An ultra-strong monofilament cord completes the AirLock modular system that pressure-fits between pole sections.
