    All 5 of my tarps came with line-locs installed that I use reflective pull out line with. Simple and easy to use, especially in cold weather with gloves on.

    So far my preferred method is to use a individual zing/lash-it guys to the ridge line using wasp and flys. For the remaining guys I use the same cordage all of which have fixed eyes on both ends. One fixed eye is larks headed to the stake and the guys have continuous loops prusicked on them. The continuous loops are attached to the tarps to make adjustments in rain dry and the guys remain attached to the tie outs and are wrapped in small coils similar to Derek Hansen’s.

    At the corners... In warm weather, Tarp Worms on a small shock cord loop larksheaded to Ti split rings, with five to six feet of reflective Z-Line. I find the Tarp Worms challenging when temps drop below freezing, so in winter I am swapping this setup for zingit and mini-ucrs at each corner.

    I was a die hard CRL fan.. Recently switched to split RL with mini-ucrs and a Dutch Hook and am liking it.. except I don't use snake skins and miss being able to hang the CRL without acually deplying the tarp.

    Depending upon tarp, 5 or 6 hair scrunchies (maybe 3-4 with a small asym) can do a pretty good job.

    x2 on my SLD Winterhaven tarp. I find that when I use my WB Mambajamba tarp, I really miss having the line locs.

    I have gotten in the habit of using a double dragon knot to put an eye at both ends of the guy lines when using the tarp worms. Just seems easier. All of my tarps are silpoly but I use the shock cord anyway... more for protection if someone trips over a line than for wet weather. I like the simplicity of the some of the other setups mentioned, especially those with the MSH to the stake and adjustments made by moving the stake. Easy enough. However, I want to be able to batten down from under the tarp if foul weather catches me off guard, hence the tarp worms. I have an inventory of Hook Worms that I have been meaning to swap in on the 'front side' of my tarps so I can disconnect and flip the tarp over.. just never got to doing it, and I don't miss that option right now.

    I would love to carry just Ti shepherd hooks. I just don't trust their purchase in the areas I find myself and I don't want to be searching for rocks and stumps. MSR Mini Ground Hogs seem best and if it's been particularly wet, I add two standard Ground Hogs to my kit
