    13' winter tarp?

    Size 20 plastic. You can get KAM snaps and pliers on Amazon pretty cheaply.

    I bought a bunch of different earthtone colors and ended up snapping all sorts of things to other things for people at HangCon. For my troubles, I got a trail name.

    Incidentally, I was wrong and I do NOT have grosgrain down the edges of my tarp, just a basic seam. My snaps are holding up great.

    Hey all,

    I was thinking of maybe doing Kam Snaps onto the ends of my HG The Journey Tarp. Do you all worry about sealing around the KAM Snaps after installation or is it something not to worry about?

    Thank you all in advance.

    Happy Weekend.

    Bob

    Sealing? Nah. The snaps are installed within 1/8" of the edge of the tarp. I doubt the snaps would lead to any seepage through the tarp, but if they did, it'd be no different than water just flowing around the tarp.

    Thanks Snaps. I was thinking along those lines. Just wanted verification.

    Can anyone post me up a picture of your DIY KAM Snap modification with the purpose to close the doors on a Tarp?

    When installing the KAM Snaps, any thoughts on making it easier to button up the KAM Snaps from the inside of the Tarp? Or does it really matter much?

    Much appreciated.

    Be safe all.

    Bob
