    I screwed up and it works!

    I was swapping out my zing-it on my tarp flys when I realized I spiced them on vs. weaving through the holes. Well it works! It's a perfect V from the tarp preventing my hammock suspension from rubbing the tarp line like a violin. Take a look! The first pic is the way that Dutch does it, the next two are how I just did it. Whatchya think?

    For a double line suspension that would be the way I wanted it... Looks good...

    Looks just great.
    I do a similar setup with some small figure 9 nite-ize "think that's what they are called" I like to use the "V" set as well other wise the hammock suspension & tarp suspension rubs/vibrates thru the hammock & wakes me up all night when its windy or I'm turning & tossing in my sleep. I've also set it up hardware free with just knots but I like to fiddle so hardware for me for now.
