Why do you even bring up Beafort scale and gale force winds?

The OP mentioned "there were other 'lapa's' that remained damageless."

I would therefore ask:
1. For what purpose is this product supposed to be used for?
2. Did the OP use it correctly?
3. How would you be able to prevent poles from bending should the wind blow?



And my answers to the above would be:
1. To be used to shield against "strong winds".
2. Apparently yes.
3. ? This only HM can tell us - if they cared, but they do not seem to.


Dirk mentioned:
The channel of communication should be local outlet who sold the product, then their head office, and finally the manufacturer.

Dieselfan - do agree with this?
A simple yes or no would do.

If you see my earlier posts, you'd have your answer as to why I say Gale force and mention the scale. The local weather station... and yes I do agree as per my earlier posts with the procedure to follow.

Ek wil graag my 2c oor HM se kwaliteit van hulle produkte gee. Ek het n trailor tent, patio, sidewalls en die ekstra kamer gekoop. Die gaas venter by binne kamer het heeltemal losgetrek na tweede opslaan. Het al twee paal gat staalringe verloor. Die middelste side wall se boonste zip was verkeerd om was gewerk. En die afdak agter tent maak holtes wat ek nie om die doodtoe kan reg kry nie. As dit reen le die water soos n dam op die canvas en lek deur. Dit lyk of die canvas skeef vas gewerk is. Ek is so teleurgestel in HM dat ek die produk glad nie sal aan beveel vir enige iemand nie. Ek is nie bereid om vier tot agt weke vir die nuwe tent en ander dele te wag nie. So ek gaan n derde party gebruik wat alles kan regmaak. En as iemand kontak besonderhede van HM het, stuur dit aan asseblief ek is lus vir n fight met hulle. En ek sien daar is al complaints op hellopeter oor hulle produkte en diens.

Ek het foute op al vier produkte gehad. Wys net hoe swak is die werkmanskap.

Dan is daar weer die teenoorgestelde... My 1ste tent op my trailer was NIE 'n Howling Moon NIE... Die ding het nie eers wind nodig gehad om uit mekaar te trek nie en soos 'n gieter water gelek, net ongelukkig na binne toe...

Ek het 4 jaar gelede 'n Howling Moon 2010 model opgesit. In 2013 het ons 'n paar donderstorms in die Kalahari beleef, geen problem met wind en/of water nie. Op dieselfde vakansie moes ons vir 2 nagte en 'n volle dag 'n NW storm weerstaan. Weereens geen probleme nie.

Laas jaar het blouape my flysheet flenters geskeur. HM het redelik vining vir my die nuwe afgestuur Kaap toe en ek het dit laat vervang.

Ek kan nie kla van enige van my HM produkte nie. My grondtent werk na amper 7 jaar nog net so goed soos dag 1. Ek koop nie maklik ander produkte nie...
