Visually square the two bars so that they are also parallel to each other 4. Move partially completed shelter to align with the alignment bars on the connection point
d. Flooring Installation 1. Lay out the shelter floor and position to line up with the vestibule floor 2. Match the alignment arrows on both floo 3. Fold the shelter floor under and attach to the vestibule floor matching up the Hook and Loop Fastener 4. Continue the connection along the entire section
