2] I'm tying my tarp to the tree and thinking of removing the tarp clips on the prussic knots. I know most of you don't use them either. Did you leave them on or remove them?
If you pull the twine which you have hooked with the mitten hook around accross
the opening of the hook, (sort of sideways) it will ease right out. Trying to open the hook and get it free is hard.
