Abstract (en)

A skeleton for umbrella tent mainly includes a top hub (100) to which multiple brace poles (A) are radially and pivotally connected to stretch by a predetermined angle; a bottom hub (106) to which multiple stretch arms (105) are radially and pivotally connected to stretch by a predetermined angle, and outer ends of these stretch arms (105) are separately pivotally connected to a predetermined point on the brace poles (A); a flexible telescopic portion located between the top and the bottom hubs (100,106) and consisting of multiple sections (112-116) in the form of hollow truncated cones; and a pull rope (107) extending through the telescopic portion with an upper end fixed to the top hub (100) and a lower end hanging from the bottom hub (106) to connect to a ring handle (108). By pulling the pull rope (107) downward, the telescopic portion is folded to easily cause the stretch arms (105) and the brace poles (A) to move into a stretched position to set up the tent. <IMAGE>
