  2. Unfold the tent and lay it flat on the ground.
  3. Find the two metal poles that run along the inside of the tent walls and pull them out.
  4. Next, collapse the metal poles until they're about half their original length.
  5. Once the poles are collapsed, tuck them into the pockets on the inside of the tent walls.
  6. Fold the tent in half lengthwise and then in half again so that it's about one-quarter its original size.
  7. Now, take one of the corners of the folded tent and tuck it into the pocket on the opposite side. Repeat this step with the remaining three corners.
  8. At this point, you should have a small, flat square that's easy to carry.
  9. Slip the carrying strap around the folded tent and cinch it tight.
  10. And that's it! You've now successfully packed up your pop-up tent!
