    Cool man, I'd like to know more about your alternative. I see what you did on the left. What kind of knots did you put in your tarp lines. Is that a separate section of shock cord on the right towards the gRound?

    It looks like he addded a section of shock cord to the Nite Ize figure-9 tent line kit:


    I think they're around $10 for the set.

    I was thinking yesterday have any of you ever tried using a elastic hair tie? They are essentially the same thing as a looped piece of shock chord. I would guess they are not super durable but would be a light, cheap and easy solution on the run. I think I may try it out and see how it works for a bit.

    I skimmed the thread and didn't see my technique, so thought I would post it. I bought a 4 pack of the smallest bungie cords my hardware store had. $3 for a pack of four, I think. I took off the metal hooks, retaining the small metal bands on the bungies that created a small loop at each end. I put a fixed loop in 8' of 1.75 zing-it and passed the other end through one of the loops. I pulled tight a knot around the top of the bungie, right under the bungie loop where my fixed loop was coming out. Then I just held the bungie cord and turned it to coil the zing-it around the bungie. When I got to the end I tied another knot and passed the other end through the bungie loop. The fixed loop is used to fix the tensioner to the tarp and the other end goes around the stake. I think this will have a lower "tangle factor" than some of the ideas I saw posted upstream.

    I love the idea for these. I'm gonna get out and make some as soon as I get some more shock cord.

    Hey guys, need your opinion. I just ordered the WB Superfly tarp. I plan on making STL for the four corners and using 12 feet of shock cord for the pull outs. Should i make STLs for the doors as well?
