Great item, very good quality and easy to store and use
I echo the previous requests to be able to buy the netting cover separately. We have bought 4 of these and 3 are entering into their 3 year in use. The only problem I have is the zip is sticking and the metal bits have broken. We have attached cable ties to enable use of the zips. As I tug at the zips to open and close I fear it will rip the netting. I do not expect the 3 netting covers to last a third year so I have bought a new frame with netting cover. My husband has just pointed out it is not just the zip that is disintegrating but also the plastic holders for the pegs.
Many thanks for leaving your product review. Your comments have been passed onto the relevant dept. for further review.
its a bit of a bind to access all of the area where we put our dome so we left it up over winter. like a couple of others have mentioned the netting and poles are still perfect even the skirt is fine but the channels that the poles sit in are suddenly disintegrating. (it may not have been its first winter) But as the material is UV protected I was hoping it would be fine. I would like to replace the netting. I can understand what you say about changes but maybe then you should say - dont leave them up in winter like the nets for the cages? I dont mind buying a new one its just a waste of the poles that hurts. But I have to admit that I might be better doing a solid aluminium one for the area, except that I will have to make it up as its a very small patch, even the 1.2 sq is a little bit too big, paying bespoke for a small area seems ott.
