Thanks everyone. Not sure what to do now. I have the nite-eyez figure 9 biner on there now and im worried that the teeth on it will tear the fibers on the amsteel. I'll have to think of a plan B. Maybe just two dutch biners, one on each end of tarp, and the tie taut-line hitch at the end of the line, perhaps?
Enjoy life's journey, but leave no tracks...
