    Tarp Snake Skins

    Do any of HF's thread injecting specialists make and sell snake skins for Tarps?

    I'm not sure if any of the big guys make any to sell. I'm no pro, but I could make you a set if you don't find any for a small fee. I have made several sets for all of my friends that camp with me and they seem to like them. So I made a set for me last week and I have plenty of material left to do more. They ended up weighing .96 oz. per set with line storage pockets on each end.

    Has HH gotten snarky about a product made of skeeter netting (that they don't make), in larger sizes, and not called "Snake Skins"?
    Mark is the name and If there is more than one way to understand what I just said....I meant the good one.

    I don't know about that fabric, but another vendor here had problems with something similar to HH's and had to remove the item from their web site. They used a different name also....didn't work!!

    HH does make several sizes of snake skins.

    Just to add another thought....if I am correct, patents don't keep you from making one for yourself or friend...just selling them for profit!

    Patents don't apply to items made with slight to major differences either but then a legal challenge gets expensive. Just friends...hmmmm. Black market...!

    I am interested in viper-skin tarp sleeves made with noseeum netting (for breathability) sized for a Warbonnett Big Mambajamba, hopefully with pockets for lines. Does this possibility exist???
