To keep a tent from being littered with small articles that are always in the way except when you want them and can't find them, shelves or wall pockets, or both, are well-nigh indispensable. These may be purchased ready-made.

The camp cupboard here illustrated (Fig. 30) has four shelves, each 10 x 30 inches, folds into a parcel 4 x 10 x 30 inches, and weighs 7 pounds. Other sizes are manufactured.

The wall pocket (Fig. 31) is 30 x 36 inches, and weighs 1 1/2 pounds. Such things can easily be made at home to suit individual requirements.

Clothes Hangers

There are various kinds of tent-pole hooks for suspending clothing, a lantern, and accoutrements. Such a contrivance is to be clamped to the rear upright, or to the center pole, depending on the kind of tent. Some are made of leather or webbing so as to be adjustable to poles of any size.

In any tent with a ridge pole two screw-eyes should be put in at opposite ends from which to suspend by cords a straight stick to hang clothes on. This is especially handy for wet clothes on rainy days.
