As some you may or may not know, I'm a total gear head . I've got a lot of tarps and a couple more on the way.
I've decided that instead of making each tarp its own set of guy lines and tarp tensioners, I thought I would use mitten hooks to make guy lines that can simply be clipped right on the tarp tie outs and switched between tarps as needed. That would also allow me to have one set of lines that I could move between my tarps. It would also be more cost effective being that I won't have to buy line and shock cord for every tarp I own.
I was wondering if the mitten hook would be able to hold up to the forces that would be encountered with a tarp guy line. Has anyone used the mitten hooks from Quest Outfitters? Can anyone think of a better alternative, read easy to use and VERY light weight, other than mitten hooks?
