    Ridge line tensioner.

    Anyone know of a neat clean way to attach shock cort to zinit line?
    I tied a six inch loop of shock cord in a knot, attached to tarp. Tied the zingit to shock cord. Does a nice job keeping the tarp tight, it just looks like crap.

    Haven't done it myself, but I've seen where some folks use a short piece of surgical tubing for tensioners. The guyline is threaded through the tubing to give a cleaner look.... Can't help you though on a good source for cheap surgical tubing, though...sorry.

    Lowes has surgical tubing by the foot in the plumbing dept. Not terribly cheap but not too bad.

    Tie a perfection loop in the line & do a loop to loop connection like a fly line.
