    I use some soft shackles prussics that I made from Opie's pictoral here. While I haven't needed to remove my tarp from my CRL, I like the fact that I can very easily. For the ends of the CRL I'm using a knotbone and one of Dutch's tarp flyz.

    I posted S-Biner's since that's what used till I got a set of the most excellent Tarp Flyz from the Dutchman!

    I use nacrabiners and prussics... works for me. My nacrabiners are made from zip it, I've thought of making from something a little larger and /or maybe using a soft shackle which might be easier to open.

    My wife has called me odd for years. Now, since I hang my tarp like you do, it has been confirmed.

    I could not vote as my method of attaching the tarp to the tarp ridgeline is not there! I use a whoopieslings.com CRL and have larksheaded the prussics directly to the tarp ridge d-rings, then I use the magnificent, stupendous, awesome Dutch Hook and Flyz to rig it up!

    Though I don't use a continuous ridgeline lol

    You could just tie a bowline hitch at one end and use a tarp fly on the other

    I copied this CRL set up. I will leave the S-biners and line on for the tarp tube set up. I want to be able to set up the tarps in different configurations so the Prussiks and S-biners.

    Now being a motorcycle hanger means I sometimes just use the bungie cords (all around) with no line at all. Just a different wrinkle if you like. Nite-Ize 5mm adjustable bungies HERE seem to work well but the gobs of garden variety ones all us moto folk have work too.
