How to secure a tent in high winds?
The best way to secure a tent in high winds is to not have your tent up in the first place. When secured properly, our tents can withstand winds up to 36 mph. Even so, high winds are dangerous for tents--and the people seeking shelter from them. If there are warnings of high winds, take your tent down as long as it is safe to do so. If you cannot safely take down your tent, evacuate people to a safe place until the winds have subsided.
