    Here's a skilled approach to getting benefits of tightness with a rectangular tarp with taut-line hitches.

    The 8'x10' walmart tarp is what I had to work with. I don't exactly have the extra funds to go out and buy a nice tarp. The rectangle a-frame setup seems to work, but I was just wondering if it might work better to hang it from corner to corner like the square diamond setup.

    Thanks for this video, DemostiX. I think I'll give that method a try.
