    The tarp stays permanently on the TWO ridglelines with Klemheist loops. I adjust the tarp by sliding the two Klemheist loops and don't have to worry about a 3rd adjustment at the second tree.

    I use two 9' sections of line with a stopper knot on the ends to keep teh Klemheist loops from slipping off.

    This is now the simplest tarp suspension I have ever set up.
    I too have been playing around with the seperate lines at each end. This video turned me on to it.

    The nice thing is it uses no hardware. Mike, I think I have an idea what you're talking about, but do you have a pic to clarify?
