Truly, I put together our new Porta-Pop 10'x10' portable tent by myself in under 10 minutes, which includes a few one-time setup tasks. Next time it will take two minutes at most. The key is this lever (first picture) in the middle that you push up and takes a half-expanded frame and transforms it into the finished product (second picture). At 5'9", I was just able to push it high enough to lock in place, avoiding a trip to get a step-stool. Wasn't the first time I've wished to be 6'0", like my Dad.
