    Adding Extra Attachment Points To Tarp

    At one of the hangs someone showed me a light weight two part attachment system...where one part (the circular male part) went on the inside, while the female part (which had the attachment point, went on the outside of a silnylon tarp.

    Can anyone tell me what these gadgets are called and where I can go to get some.

    BTW, I know about the Wally World attachment points...they are too heavy and don't work with thin tarp fabric.

    Any assistance will be appreciated!

    What about these?

    I picked up a set of these on sale at Harbor Freight for $10.99, although they are full price now. We get 20% coupons in the paper locally which would help with the price.

    They work well too

    I've tried them with different fabrics and even house wrap and once they are on, they will not slide off. Haven't tried sil, but if for some reason it slipped you could supplement with another small piece of ripstop or other material which would also help with wear. They could be multi-use for hanging items too.

    I carry 4 of the Jacks or Better panel pulls. Very light, very compact, inexpensive. Will work to pull the sides of a tarp out for more room under and as an emergency corner tie should one or more fail.
