    Removable Tarp DOor Patterns?

    I made a tarp door for a DIY Blackact tarp and it didn't quite turn out how I wanted. I'm having difficulty keeping it taut. I want a removable setup so I can use it on either my DIY or my OES deluxe.

    I'd appreciate some pics of others that have successfully made tarp doors for a cat cut tarp.

    Thanks!

    Got mine from the wonderful thread injector of 2QZQ and they are perfect for dang near any tarp. Grizz is a genius of course and ZQ is a master of the machine! Can't go wrong if you get one or a set of theirs or DIY Grizz's design.

    I patterned mine off of these ones from Shug's video. They're basically a 4x4x5 triangle to fit my OES maccat deluxe. 5 feet is the distance from my ridgeline, to the side tie-out on the tarp.
