    Re: My tarp guy lines

    I do the same as caveman... Slippery half hitch behind the linelok... Holds everything in place and keeps the lines up off the ground...

    I also slippery-half hitch. Then with longer lines, I Figure-8 over my pinkie and index finger and then wrap the tail around it. Keeps them off the ground.

    Thanks, guys, now I know! Luckily I ordered some spare line-loks to swap out the busted ones
    I may be dumb, but at least I'm ugly!

    I've done so much, with so little, for so long, now I can do anything with nothing.

    It's not peer pressure, it's just your turn.

    Just a bump to this thread, replaced thin prusiks with these line locs on my 1.75mm zing-it guy line. Over time I became less fond of the prusik approach, esp when I needed to make a massive change in length of the line (friction = heat), and after rain they were especially annoying.

    Anyway, line locs weight less than a gram, so there's basically no weight penalty for the more convenient setup. At least not enough to be concerned about (and rounding to the nearest gram has always been enough for me). Total weight for 1 line (3/32, line loc, 6' zing it w/ loop) is 5g.

    It is a very alert, active sheep, with a stylish, lively carriage.

    I tour & bike camp with a Mark Nobilette built Protovelo, and ride a bunch of others. Have any bike questions?

    Thanks for the bump. Forgot about this thread...This is a great method for guy-lines. I purchased few of these LineLocs awhile back..These make setting up your tarp so easy and fast...This is especially nice when it is raining.

    I have been using this technique for tarp tieouts since I first saw this thread. Haven't found anything I like better. But I have spent considerable time trying to figure out how to use the Line Loks to replace the prussiks on my tarp continuous ridgeline also. They would work if I used 2 separate lines but so far I haven't been able to make them work on a continuous ridgeline.Has anyone done this or have any ideas?
