Hello all.
I recently bought a Darche Dusk to dawn 1100 swag & a Darche Xl100 stretcher.
Doing a trial set up in the back yard I was wondering how everyone stops the fibreglass swag poles from sliding down through the hole in the corner of the stretcher.
Any help would be appreciated.

Don't bother with mine I just rely on the short tube attached to the ring. Had no problems with my swag on my stretcher this way. If you are that concerned maybe put a length of ply or an old floor board each end of your stretcher to sit the pole ends on?

I didn't even think of the pins.
It all makes sense now.
Thanks.

What he said, isn't that little pin on the ring in the corner of the swag meant to go into the end of the fiberglass pole?
Problem solved.

Or you could get a big zip tie and make it into a loop that goes from the ring and around the open end of the spreader bar. Once on, cut off the tail so it doesn't get pulled tight by accident. That will keep the swag at the corners and be cheap and easy to replace.

Yep.
I wasn't aware of this.
All sorted now.
