Great idea dejoha... and as usual fantastic easy to understand illustrations.

Is that correct or did I miss something?
I could be wrong here but it seems that it is adjustable because only the dutch hook is attached to the tarp, so when you pull the line or the tarp from the Flyz side you can easily adjust the position of the tarp.
I think the best thing about this is that you are guaranteed a tight pitch without fiddling because the tarp will always be as tight as the rl.
As far as I can see the only down side is that if the tarp stretches your rl will slacken also... luckily it seems extremely easy to adjust even from under the tarp in foul weather.
