This is _sort of_ how I use my Stingers. I'll have an illustration short coming. Like Dutch mentioned, I tie or splice my line in the "eye" in front of the "stinger." I clip the Stinger directly to the tie-out on the tarp.
My preferred line is inexpensive braided mason line. Fits great. Lasts forever.
Waiting to see the pic. Knew you would have something for us to see.
