    Cut up a balloon and place the pieces in between the tarp and the grip clips. Should hold OK if the force is straight out. It still might slip if pulled from the side.

    I had the exact same questions as you regarding center ties on my GG tarp - and I don't know squat about sewing.

    Came here - and got the "grip clips" recommendation. I too already had a set of the HD clips. But when I tried them, the fabric is too thin for them to work effectively.

    I so ordered the grip clips from Amazon. I think I paid around $10 for a set of four clips. And the clips come with some bonus cordage as well.

    Only problem I'm having now is waiting for some decent weather to try out my new system. Haven't been able to test hang it yet.

    I haven't gotten around to sewing loops on my GG tarp yet, so I just used a combination of this knot: http://www.hammockforums.net/forum/s...ad.php?t=31223 and a lark's head around a ball. Basically I made the loop loosely around my upright, then put the lark's head 6 inches or so behind the slip knot, then pulled the loop tight. We'll see if it holds all night or if it loosens.

    I use these on my tarp (poncho, actually) along with the balloon gaskets and they work well.
