    pull out

    What is this technique called. Is it a matter of folding the edges and sewing. It looks like a good idea but is it really.

    I assume that you are asking for a potential DIY project. If so I hope you are a much better sewer than I. First off, folding grograin ribbon (looks like in thirds) and sewing might be a bit of a challenge. Next, I see that the ends are sewn onto the zipper backing, again tough to get it right, for a reinforcement. There are much easier (and lighter) methods of attaching tie-outs to a tarp. Here is a typical tie out reinforced with a piece of ripstop. It will stand up to strong wind and is much lighter than the picture you posted . . . and much easier to do.

    Thanks hiker DC. The link you provided was on a tarp and has d-rings used which I'm not going to use. The pic above is on the body. Just thought with the webbing or grosgrain folded and sewn would make it easyer to feed cord thru or clip to. Everything I seem to do is a challenge. I'm always getting into something. Keeps the mind busy I guess.

    Tasthree looks a neat little secondry pull out, good for a hammock or corners of an underquilt.I would not deploy it on a tarp unless much more reinforced.I like it though.

    This isn't too hard to sew. Just do the fold in the middle of the grosgrain first, then attach it to the hammock (this looks like a side pullout on an asym hammock to me). The important thing is suiting the strength and weight of the pull out to the material it's attached to, reinforcing if necessary. In this instance the zipper tape provides the reinforcement.

    This is a picture from my DIY hammock and it wasn't hard to do at all. It's folded in thirds, just start with a piece a little longer than you want so you have more to hang onto when sewing, when done just trim the ends off to desired length. I use it as a place to hook my shockcord pullouts when I want to flip my bug net over my ridgeline so I don't have to get out and unstake. The reason I folded the GG is so it would remain stiff so I could easily hook onto it with one hand.
