That fourth corner in black diamond tents

have a Light House, no longer made but identical design to Ahwahnee. internal frame, two crossing corner-to-corner poles must be set in female button in each corner. am tired of wresting match involved in setting that fourth corner against the tension of the rest of the tent. anybody have a trick, like smarts v brute force? stake corners first? stake 1, 2, or 3 corners first? would appreciate any advice.

This is the one that the poles are inside the tent, correct?

It has been a while since I've seen that model, but, if I recall correctly, I would:

Stake out the four corners, put in the short ridge line pole, then install the other two cross poles.
