Well I slapped together a stand tonight. Worked pretty well. Used hppyfnguy mod, with no limiter string. Used a full chain link fence rail for the test, but I'll be piecing two together. I need to measure my tarp ridgeline before cutting.
Didnt have any carabiners so I used a "nacrabiner" and a loop of spectra to attach to the hinge. Worked well, but was a tad long (pipe needs to be a bit higher)
Anyway, thanks for all the r&d work guys and gal.
