The shelters are not particularly sophisticated. Simply some spare build timber and some canvas. However, the accomplish the task of providing some basic protection for the open draw pits.

In order to secure the canvas to the ground, we used spare LBA anchor pegs. We have enough spare of these to get this done and the pegs have some very handy lugs that allow us to secure the corners of the canvas (with either bowlines or clove-hitches and 2 half-hitches, depending on the location). Not only did the draw pits get covered, but we also put some covering over the cable entry points in the LBA-cable-mausoleum. This was actually a lot easier, as the frame was already in place.
