    Shock cord them to each other under the tarp. I run a 30" piece of shock cord w/ a mitten clip off each door and this is about the perfect length for tying them out or stowing them under the tarp.

    Would love to hear how one would hold up. It looks like an awesome choice for bug netting but probably real prone to getting damaged. I'd be interested in having a head bug net of the stuff.

    I bet that holds up great in a hard rainstorm and look at that never ending footbox on that thing too. Just get some tin roofing and you got a good tarp for it too.

    I run 8' permanently attached to each stake for the bottom tie-outs. Seems more than plenty long and 8' of zing-it weighs as much as 2'-5' of zing-it. In other words not much.

    Doubt it lol, I'm an aircraft mechanic so it's readily available to me but I suppose picture frame hanging wire or something like that at Ace would work. Any stiff smooth wire will work though.
