    Tarp Tensioners

    Looking for 4 Tarp Tensioners for my winter setup. I looked on AHE & JRB already. JRB has them but they have line with them. I have line, I just need the tensioners.

    tarp tensioner

    I believe you can go to a medical supply store and get surgical tubing. It comes in various widths.

    I cut up one of the stretchy exercise bands I got from Wal-Mart. Might not be as small as the surgical tube, but works fine for me.
