So, I was thinking a bit on how to lighten my tarp guyline situation and was wondering if anyone had input on this.
I am currently using Dyneema (6ft) for each of my 4 corners. I then have larksheaded onto each of those tie outs about 6" of shock cord and a home made tarp worm. Then I just adjust as needed.
Here is the idea I had, using a combination of ideas I have seen on the forum.
Basically what you have is your stake, then a fixed loop in your line (zing-it, lash-it, dyneema, glow line, mason line, etc). The length of the line has yet to be determined.
The fixed loop goes around your stake, on your line you have a prussik which is adjustable (duh...), that prussik goes around a toggle (aluminum stock, carbon, titanium, a stick, etc...) that toggle is either connected to your shock cord, or in the case of using a stick from your camp site, a loop would need to be created, then the shock cord would be tied to, or larks headed onto your tarp.
Here is a close up of the toggle, as for the shock cord, I use 1/8"
As for the stick idea, this is what I was thinking
Let me know what you guys think.
