    Can I attach the stock tarp too a web suspension

    Hello everyone.

    I bought the JRB tri-glides and want to put them on my HH, but how will i attach stock tarp. Would a prusik knot work on webbing? I know i could hook it up the the trees. Just wanted to know if there was a slick way of hooking it to the webbing.

    Yes, a prussik will work fine on the webbing. It may 'roll' the webbing inside the cord, but that's no problem.

    Tying the tarp directly to the tree will produce a better result, but you already know that.
    I think that when the lies are all told and forgot the truth will be there yet. It dont move about from place to place and it dont change from time to time. You cant corrupt it any more than you can salt salt. - Cormac McCarthy
