Note, I'm using two individual tieouts for the ridgeline
I'm not sure if you are using a line running under the tarp, but assuming you are, then as I understand it, attach the tie outs to prussiks on the ridgeline using small biners or whatever. Pull on the prussiks to adjust and tighten the tarp. Dejoha has diagrams.
