General Maintenance Tips

*Keep the dirt packed securely around the sides and back of the shelter,
as natural settling will occur over time.
*Periodically lubricate (WD40) the door hinges as well as
the internal latching mechanism.
*Re-prime or paint the door as you see fit.
*Applying weather stripping around the inside of the door may alleviate any issue with water dripping into the shelter and may be used at your discretion.
