    I freely admit that I know nothing, but is this method better?
    I just trust sewn on more ... wind can really push a tarp.....
    Tough to stick stuff on silnylon ... I have never found anything that would adhere.
    I seam sealed them well and they are off to the side and not right over my hammock so my worry is less.
    Weakening? ..... unsure on that. We will see though down the trail.

    Actually this shouldn't be here so i am going to post this on the DIY section sorry
    Sure you could .... make them tight lil' stitches . Then seam seal them.

    Shug, In your opinion is sewing the tie outs in a circle. A big improvement over sewing them square. In use is there any noticeable advantage of one over the other?

    I really am not sure .... I would rather look at a circle than a square!

    Very nice, Shug! I saw them on your videos and they work great! For the headroom factor alone, I'll definitely be adding some pull outs to my forthcoming DIY tarp.
