    Video:Tarp suspension tensioning with mini biner

    In this short video I'm using Zing-It and a cheap mini biner to show a way of tarp suspension and tensioning. It allows for easy readjustment of tension if needed. And it is taken down pretty easy afterwards without having to pick apart tight knots.

    I often see Nite-ize figure nines used for 'knot free' tarp suspension and tensioning. But it appears that using a common mini biner will work just as well. They're also cheaper and easier to find in stores.
    I guess it replaces a trucker's hitch knot, which is tricky sometimes to maintain the tension while tightening.

    What do you guys think?
