I finally did it. Yay! I tied in shock cord tarp tensioners on my SWT using Youngblood's method just a little bit ago. Way easy, so if I can do it anyone can. I tied a tight overhand knot on the ends of the shock cord as a little added extra insurance policy against the guyline sliiping off the shock cord. I'll get pics at the Gorge this weekend and post when I get back. Many thanks to Youngblood for sharing his method and HC for making a separate thread so I could see how to do it since my computer couldn't open the document. Thanx again, guys!
