    Side Tie-Outs

    I would like to add tie-outs to my DD tarp. How would I go about doing so?

    From the pictures they seem like they'd create wear on the tarp where the rings overlap. Why is this not the case?

    I have had mine in the same place for 2 seasons. No visible wear. Work perfect - no sew.

    If your tarp is PU coated nylon, something like McNett Seam Grip will work well. If it is silnylon then McNett Silnet would work.
