    for that use (pull outs) your going to be pulling pretty much strait out most of the time any way. but occasionally i'll use a branch that's off set in an odd direction, just because it's convenient & it serves the purpose.

    those clips are a much better design for this than the old style griff clips i that have. i probably bought them over 15 years ago & the line attaches to one side only.
    i'll take a picture later just for reference.
    but i believe i'll have to get some of the newer griff clips.

    Try a scrap of balloon to prevent the sliding.

    Look like they are designed the same way. Do they have some way to attach a guy line?

    I used them on a homemade tarp tent. I staked the tie outs to the ground to gain some internal volume. By morning, they were no longer taut and the volume was mysteriously missing. All due to slippage.

    I was looking through Cannibal's pics and I saw where he is using the grip clips to tie out the shoulder area of his Warbonnet El Dorado. That's a pretty awesome use for these clips and I just had to bring it to the group's attention.

    Yes, I like that. A person could also do similar things to hang up wet rain jackets & stuff.
