    Here's a post from Detail Man on a NO SEW method for adding tarp pullouts using silicone to glue the patches on. He got very good, surprisingly strong results:

    Yep, I used one this winter. Paid the $19.99 last summer for it. You need to add some tie outs and a ridgeline, but I think it works great. Lots of room and lots of options for setup.

    Here's a couple of photos of a trip I took in late March.

    Those are excellent action shots, thanks for posting!

    I just got the first 2 in last night and as soon as they were unpacked, they were on the sewing table getting reinforcements on the existing tie out straps and then got 2 added to the middle so they could be hung A-frame.

    Just got 2 in and added mid-point tie-outs to the center of each. They are great tarps for the money. I examined the existing tie-outs closely and they actually are reinforced very well.

    Yeah, I just ordered two more, they are too nice to pass up and have to wait on again. Now I'll have 5 of these although a few are spoken for.
