Hiya, just a heads up to let people know the new secret jardin tents now come with plastic connectors on the handling bars instead of the old single piece metal bars with bends at each end. He says they're stronger but he won't answer my questions on the plastic degrading over time. Afaik they're made from polypropylene which will degrade from UV light and heat. I was disappointed when i opened my tent. There's no mention of the change in the list of 2.5 improvments on their site. I wouldn't have bought the tent if i knew, so i'm warning people so they can avoid the same mistake or at least make an informed decision. Thanks !
