Seems too simple of a solution to have been overlooked by you folks.
Yeah - I've got some of those real small ones.
As long as you aren't pulling parallel top the tarp on 1.1 oz silnyl they would work good. Should work well on side pull outs where you are pulling mostly out from the tarp.
Put 4 where you want them, tie to the loop on the Grip Clip and you have side pullouts. Wouldn't have to be worried about any stitching weakening the fabric.
If you are pulling parallel to the tarp, they slide real easy on silnyl and don't work too well for edge tie outs, especially on the 1.1 oz silnyl.
