Cricket Pyramid Tarp $185.00


Cricket Tarp (tm)

This Tarp is the SoloMid XL with a beak instead of a door.

The SoloMid XL InnerNet fits the 2017 Cricket Tarp. By adding the InnerNet it becomes the Cricket Tent!
(Older Cricket Tarps use the Solomid InnerNet. If you side panels are asymmetrical leaning to the front, it's the newer 2017 version.)

MLD Pro SilNylon Seam Sealing
We send seam sealer with all our silnylon shelters.
You can do it yourself in about 30min with the supplied seam sealer
OR as an extra service we can do it for you!
Seam sealing adds about 1oz/ 30gms +/- depending on the shelter size.
Factory sealed shelters are returnable under the regular return policy.
DYI seam sealing is not.
We use a diluted 100% Silicone Sealer on the exterior stitching above the lower hem.
Factory seam sealing can add about 1 week to the order process.

***Cuben Shelters Do Not Need Seam Sealing***

Seam Sealing Instructions

How to a Seam Seal an MLD Pro Silnylon Shelter

(Cuben Fiber Shelters do not need seam sealing.)

1: Pitch and inspect your shelter for any issues. Once it is seam sealed it is non returnable except for significant defects.

2: Use the supplied SilNet and only the SilNet. (If you want to dilute it or use some other silicone sealant it should work OK and is common (research this yourself online) but your are on your own- results may vary and are not covered by warranty - if you go this route it is assumed you know 100% what you are doing and have done it before!!!)

3: Pitch the shelter tightly. Temps should be above 60 F and humidity below 80%. You may do this indoors. You may also do one seam at a time indoors if the seem is stretched slightly. Pinning one seam from each end on the floor between two heavy objects works OK.

4: We use the SilNet straight from the tube. Do not make a big hole in the sealer tube - start small so you can control flow. Multiple small application is a lot better than one big smear.

5: Main Seams: Place a small bead on the seam along the stitching. Work on a 3’- 4’ section at a time. Use a finger to press the sealer into the stitching and the small valley at the edge of the seam where it is rolled under.


NOTE: You only need to seal the OUTSIDE of the shelter ONLY. You do not need to seal the bottom perimeter roller edge stitching. It is OK to add a small bead on the leading edge of the triangle tieouts reinforcement stitching, but it is not required.

SPECIAL AREAS: Add a little sealer to any tieout stitching on the middle of a panel (Mids, Cricket and SuperTarps). Seal the zipper storm flap stitching and tieouts on the Mids. Seal the stitching and apex tieouts areas on the Mids, Crickets and TrailStars.

IMPORTANT: Do no go back and forth over the wet seam too much - after a minute or three it will get gummy and look bad. Better to wait 8 hrs and then OK to add some over any area you missed.
