    joehasbeard, A hitch or other knot may actually work better. Or even a toggle and added short line as the WL tarp has pre sewn loops at the ends. We added the stretch lines and mitten hooks when we added the line pockets. But because of the stretch, the tarp will not stay tight on the sides, thus the loose edges in the picture. An adjustable strong line without flex would fix that issue.

    The only issue for mods would be the center tie out point. Ours didn't come with them. They were added on. But the guys at WL may add them if you ask. For those that already have the WL Big Daddy and do not want to sew on new tieouts, a tarp clip should work. They make many different brands, most are not that great or designed for thicker plastic tarps. There is a company called easyklip that makes them, super strong, and they sell a mini and micro that seem to work great on tarps. I wouldn't know what long term issues there may be with them as far as wear and damage. Maybe another member can give advise there. check easyklip.com

    I believe they have a couple made of most of tarps. and they are in NC. also I believe they ship twice a week . so pretty fast.

    Les rus, the first set of shots are the RRG, a favorite spot of ours. The second set was Two Lakes Loop in Hoosier National Forest by Cordon IN. Normally a favorite for a quick overnight hike, total trek is 14.5. But the weather has been very dry, ticks and chiggers are seriously out of control right now!

    Jlegion, our delivery time was two days. So as NewtonGT says, they must have a few ready to ship. If you need one fast, wouldn't hurt to ask em, they are very friendly and helpful. Truthfully, the product is as good as I've seen anyone else make, and for a better price.
