I have made some nice (if a bit too stiff) lash-it tarp tie-outs. They have a spliced eye on the tarp end, green latex tubing tensioners with zip ties securing them on double overhand knots--but as yet just an untreated end. 6~7' in length.
What is the state-of-the-art for stake attachment? What knot/splice/widget is being employed? Describe or point me to the thread.
