    Why not keep it simple? get an 8 pack of mini bungees with hooks already on them from home depot. cost under 5 dollars. Make a loop and put the loop around the stake.

    I dont think it matters.

    Having the adjustment end on the D-ring gives you the ability to make adjustments from under the tarp. Which looks like thats the way you have it set-up.
