    Got the tarp up using this video setup.

    I used the line setup from the video and using the hardware from dutch it went together so easy. Its amazing how pieces so small and light weight can be so workable. Worst thing I worry about is losing things so I will be ordering some extras.

    Excellent video. I love everything I buy from Dutchware. Everything is so intuitive, no-nonsense, and makes set-up so freakin' fast and easy.

    Dutch and others, instead of a locked brummel to attach the Dutch Hooks to the line, what knot could you use instead? Bowline? Perfection loop?

    Thanks!

    You can make a continuous loop. It looks much cleaner because there is no knot at all.

    Edit, I should nave read that better. I will let some of the knot experts answer

    It is a hook on the end of a line...how about a fishermans knot (or a double fk)?

    This is not the cleanest possible way, but I use a bowline on an extra set of the hooks. A bowline is simple, easy to tie and untie, and holds tight. The only issue I have is when coiling the zing-it the tag end of the bowline gets hung up a bit. But, it is a small problem.
