Here's one you forgot to mention - with this version, you can re-tighten the line if necessary from under the safey (and might I add, dryness) of your tarp. It's all done right at the tie-out point (supposing your stake is still holding properly).
When the line is over 400lb strong, the built in "release valve" feature is a real plus as well. Keep that D-ring on the tarp where it belongs!
Thanks SC... I had forgotten about that... Certainly a bonus!!
