O.k. thanks. That's not bad. Have you had the chance to compare your mod to any of the pole mods underneath the tarp? Do you see any advantages of one over the other? Thanks
I did something very similar, but just used prussic loops on some tent poles I had.
A plus is that the tarp ridge line keeps the pole off the tarp. After doing this, I used the location of the prussics to figure out how long my tarp poles needed to be when I ordered them from Quest outfitters. (mine needed to be exactly 5')

Just came across this thread. Thanks for posting the detailed pictures. Great idea with the webbing and grommets.

Quest has shipped my order. Should be able to fabricate things this weekend.
I am going to try shallow angle elbows at the ridgeline. And I have an old TNF tent (30 yrs) that has "urethane cancer" from which I will harvest suitable grommet-set nylon straps.
Thanks again for the the inspiration! Pics when done.
