On some of our tents, you'll see these little pieces of hardware called glove hooks. Often we use them to tension the inner tent to the fly, to maximize the interior volume of a tent. We've had a few customers email in, asking about the best way to use them. You'll notice that they're not easy to press on the latch, and it can be frustrating to use them that way. Watch the video below for some tricks to using this piece.
