Truss Setup Resources

Truss structures are sturdy and easy to set up. However, its inherent versatility makes it difficult to create a one size fits all set of installation instructions. Every truss structure is different and so is every set of truss setup instructions. Each order is accompanied by a custom diagram to aid in setup.

Quick Clips



Truss structures that are 10x20 or smaller can use quick clips rather than bolts for faster set up. Using bolts will always result in the sturdiest possible setup.



10X20 Setup Example



  • Bring a rubber hammer/mallet and (1) 8’ ladder.
  • Include a socket set just in case you need to tighten some of the truss bolts.
  • Assemble the top 10x20 perimeter truss hardware first (each truss setup includes a custom diagram) and use the quick clips to connect all the pieces. This is where the rubber mallet can come in handy.
  • Make sure the middle ladder truss is connected going through the middle portion of the 10x20 dividing the roof into (2) 10x10 sections (use quick clips).
  • Layout canopy on truss roof and install roof drain screw in connectors on the underside of the roof if they’re not on the canopy already.
  • Layout the canopy over the truss roof and lightly secure it to the corner, so it doesn’t blow off when adding the legs.
  • Insert the truss legs and this can be done a few ways: someone holds the truss on one end using the ladder and someone else inserts the legs. If there’s no ladder you will need someone to hold one end of the truss up while the other inserts the legs.
  • Once all the legs have been mounted you can tighten the canopy corners using the ratchet straps. These connect to the roof comer rings and can be connected to the inside of the truss legs and tightened until the roof looks good.
  • Connect the roof drain tubes if there’s rain in the forecast and have them direct rain to the back legs and out the back or down the legs
  • Apply the truss walls as needed using bungee balls + ladder.
  • Connect out guides to truss legs and ground ballasting.
  • If you have TV mounts they clamp to the top perimeter of the truss. You can mount TV’s in various locations as needed.

What Made In America Means

Custom Truss Structures Made In America

Some companies throw around the phrase, “Made in America,” pretty loosely in our opinion. Truth be told, more than 95% of the custom tent industry today imports metal frames from overseas and prints the branded canopies in the U.S.


At TentCraft, we choose to control quality, focus on speed, and support American craftsmanship — right here in Northern Michigan. We manufacture all of our aluminum tent frames in house and print the branded canopies in the same facility. All of our custom solutions are setup for a final inspection, then carefully packaged and shipped from our headquarters near Lake Michigan to all corners of the United States.


American made. American sourced. American jobs.


We believe our way is better.


TentCrafters focus on innovation, quality, and customization to better serve our customers. And that results in some obvious and not-so-obvious benefits.


Of course, there’s that good feeling you get supporting good old-fashioned American manufacturing. But when you need a custom tent tailored to your brand and event, you want a team of experts on your side who are all under the same roof. From designing your canopy to figuring out a way to create some off-the-wall structure to really stand out at your next event, our knowledgeable team of sales reps, project managers, creative artists, metal fabricators, printing specialists, and sewing savants collaboratively bring your pie-in-the-sky idea to life.
