    Tato Tarp Connectors?

    I saw a youtube video from Dutch about these Tato Tarp connectors. Where do I get those at? They're not on Dutchwaregear.com.
    Fill what's empty, empty what's full, scratch where it itches.

    No wonder I couldn't find them. Feeling dumb. Thanks Nuttysquirrel.

    I will be putting them on my site soon. I made the vid in preparations to do so. Just have to get around to creating the page.

    I have a pair coming in the mail tomorrow and am anxious to try them out. I was a bit skeptical at first due to the shock cord on them but if the Dutchster gives them his endorsement I feel confident they will be boss.

    I tried them. Found that the cord size is important and they wouldn't fit thru the key rings on my tarp (Clouburst). I could've fitted larger key ring - went to the Dutch Minibiners on prusiks instead.

    Yeah, I assume that's gonna be a problem with my HG Cuben tarp as well because it has those tiny little plastic rings instead of the more traditional larger "D" rings. I figured I'd just tie a small loop to the ring and thread the toggle through that instead. My Superfly is a newer model from last year and has the large plastic "D" rings instead of the small "key" ring style that the older tarps came with so I am guessing the toggle will work fine with my SF.

    Just got my tarp connectors in the mail today. They look pretty cool. Only one minor complaint is that one side of the aluminum hook is not deburred well at all. It has a very rough/sharp edge. Not deburred to the same quality Dutch does on his hardware. Not sure if these might have been stamped? I had to take a file to all of four of the ones I ordered and file off the anodized burr down to bare metal otherwise it likely would have cut into the line.

    I already have the TATO tarp connectors and they are nice. Just waiting for my Wasp so I can try them together.
