    Using this method on my Winter Tarp with snow stakes. Put a loop of line on my snow stakes with and s-biner and Shane's method with my tarp tensioner lines. Works very well to tighten the silnylon in the snow without moving the stake.

    I've been using Shane's method and I like it a lot but I'm mildly concerned about the shock cord or Linelok breaking in the wind some day. What's the best backup plan for fixing it when that happens at 3am in the rain? It seems like Zing-it does not hold knots well.

    Maybe I should just carry one extra shockcord/linelok/zing-it in my repair kit?

    You could just carry a loop or two of Zing-it to use as a prussik in case a Line-Lok breaks. Could probably be left attached to the tieout fulltime. Or...the old standby Trucker's Hitch.

    I haven't tried a trucker's hitch in Zing-it because everyone talks about how it won't hold knots but that's my favorite knot (er, hitch) in the whole wide world! I'll try it tonight!

    Thanks!

They would work if I used 2 separate lines but so far I haven't been able to make them work on a continuous ridgeline.Has anyone done this or have any ideas?
    good question.i feel the same. where else could I use these? bumps.

    This is not what you asked but I think these would be a better choice.

    That looks interesting but I can't really tell how big they are - any more info?

    I have a set of these, but haven't used them yet. I have seen the prototype in action, and they are sweet! They are approximately 5.5" from the center of the toggle to the edge of the piece that attaches to the ridge line. The cord is shock cord, so it is made to have some stretch to keep things taut. Are you thinking of using them as tie outs as well? Hmm...now you've got me thinking...

    Check out the ultimate hang blog. Derek did a test on that setup. Would post a link but I'm on my phone at the moment.
    Where has this thread been my whole life. Just set my lines like this, can't wait to test.

    I put this setup on my tarp and it works like a charm. Now I have to do some for Hamhockers tarp
