    Side Tie-Outs

    I would like to add tie-outs to my DD tarp. How would I go about doing so?

    these work great and easy. http://www.jacksrbetter.com/GripClips.htm
    It's not procrastinating, its proactively delaying the implementation of the energy-intensive phase of the project until the enthusiasm factor is at its maximum effectiveness.

    From the pictures they seem like they'd create wear on the tarp where the rings overlap. Why is this not the case?

    I have had mine in the same place for 2 seasons. No visible wear. Work perfect - no sew.

    If your tarp is PU coated nylon, something like McNett Seam Grip will work well. If it is silnylon then McNett Silnet would work.
