I got a free tent from a co-worker, but it needs poles. I contacted the manufacturer, and they don't sell replacements anymore. They gave me the pole length but didn't know the diameter.

I was hoping someone could provide some insight as to what size I should be looking for. The tent has a foot print of approximately 6 ft by 7 ft, and the poles attach to 3/8" grommets in webbing at each corner.

Thanks

Going through the same thing myself right now with repairs. Good luck.

I've seen generic, expand-with-a-friction-lock-to-any-length tent poles in the camping departments of both Walmart and Gander Mountain stores. They didn't look sturdy enough for use with something like a canvas wall tent, but for smaller tents/tarps, they might be okay.
