Either watch the video below or follow the instructions underneath, and you'll have your swag set up in no time at all!
Remove your Crashpad swag from the carry bag and place it on a flat surface that is free from debris and sharp objects. The base of the swag is fully waterproof however we recommend the use of a Crashmat under your swag for additional protection.
Unclip the webbing straps and roll your swag out flat. Remove the poles from the black PVC carry bag.
Follow this sequence for each curved
(a) Extend the folded curved poles
(b) Attach the pole to the rod pins at both corners of the swag
(c) Connect the bow clips to the pole starting with the two top ones first then work your way down each side
Extend the folded centre pole, then place the clip at one end of the centre pole onto the middle of a curved pole and repeat. Your swag is now standing up. Peg out each ends awning. Your swag is now setup.
Depending on weather conditions you may wish to peg down your swag using the peg loops located at each corner of the swag and open the doors and end ventilation windows.
If you have any further questions on the setup of your swag then please contact our Customer Support team on firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be more than happy to assist with your questions.
To waterproof your swag, set it up, remove the mattress and thoroughly soak the exterior canvas with water. This allows the thread and canvas to swell thus taking up any potential leaks in the stitching resulting in your canvas being more water resistant. Allow to dry, particularly the seams. It is the drying process that seals the seams. Repeat this whole process twice to completely ensure the seams are waterproof and pre-conditioned.
To clean the canvas and PVC base of
your swag use cold water and a soft
brush or sponge. Clean the zippers on a
regular basis by using a soft brush and
also wiping a damp cloth. Do not use or
expose the swag to any of the following
which may lead to damage of the swag
materials; soap or detergents, insect
or pesticide aerosol sprays, petrols,
oils, solvents or similar such products,
incompatible water repellents. Exposure
of your swag to any of these items will
void your warranty.
Ensure your swag is thoroughly dry before storing, this will prevent mildew forming. Store it in a dry place off the floor and out of direct sunlight. In the event that you must pack your swag while still wet, as soon as you get to your next camp or arrive back home, erect the swag and let it thoroughly dry out before storing it away until your next adventure.
For optimum use, we recommend the use of a Crashmat groundsheet underneath to act as an additional barrier to protect your swag. Select a suitable site that's clear and flat for your swag. Stay clear of any hazards such as falling branches, open flames, rising water beds, and water pooling areas. Do not use combustion cooking or lighting appliances in your swag. Minimise the chance of condensation by opening the end windows of the swag to enable air flow which helps regulate the temperature inside the swag to that of the outside.
Congrats on scoring yourself some
sweet new Crashpad gear. Respect!
To ensure the longevity of your swag poles we have provided you with a few hot tips.
(Side step: Grab yourself a cold beer. Optional but recommended.)
Please avoid doing any of the following as this will lead to pole failure:
• Take care not to overbend the pole during pack up or set-up as this creates unnecessary stress on the pole sleeves and can lead to pole breakages.
• Take care not to use the swag poles when the swag is set up as a leaning post (trust me the car bonnet is much better for this) and please don’t use them to take your boots off at the end of a long day (it doesn’t even sound comfortable).
• Try not to fall on it when drunk after a session around the camp fire. Aim for the ground next to the swag. It may not be as forgiving but your swag will thank you for it in the morning.
It is important when setting up the curved end poles that this specific sequence is followed to ensure you do not place too much tension on the poles.
Step 1) Extend the folded curved poles and check that each piece is inserted completely into their respective sleeve.
Step 2) Attach the pole to the rod pins at both corners of the swag.
Step 3) Connect the bow clips to the poles starting with the top two ones first, then work down each side. Ensure this step is done only after both of the pole ends have been inserted into the corner pins first.
Step 4) Stand back and admire your handiwork. See side step above.
Failure to follow this sequence provided may result in poles breaking as too much tension is placed on the poles if attempting to clip bow clips to the pole after only inserting one corner pin.
Allow at least 24 hours for the mattress to air and return to its full size after being removed from the packaging.
