    Superfly side pull-outs. How do I rig them?

    This is the only part if the rigging that I haven't figured out yet. Can anyone give me some ideas?

    I've got shock cord and lash-it waiting for the job, but don't want to cut it until I'm sure.

    I've decided that I don't want the side pull outs to be permanently fixed because I don't want them flapping around when not in use. My plan so far is to tie shock cord to one pull out, thread it through the other and tie it back on itself with a tensioning hitch (this would have to stay on permanently). The max length of shock cord would be twice the distance between the pull outs. In use, the shock cord would be extended and a 6ft length of lash-it fixed to it with a larks head to tie out to a tree or down to a peg.

    Does this sound ok or am I over complicating the set up? Often there is a simple solution that I overlook.

    Any advice would really be appreciated.

    Thanks

    This is what has worked for me.



    Side pullouts are at the 4:00 minute mark. Obviously, disregard the fact that mine are aftermarket pullouts; the same idea would apply to the sewn versions that come stock now.

    Mine are zing-it spliced into a Y shape. When not deployed the can do double duty as door tie backs but mostly they are folded in half and neatly clipped to the side pulls which is how they're stowed. I attach with Niteize 0size plastic sbiners (tiny)

    I don't usually use shock cord or tensioner but have some short removable ones available to use anywhere on the tarp I as may need them.

    I've got 1m of 2mm shockcord on mine, with a loop at each end. You can pass one loop through the other and through the webbing loops, they can easily come off then if needed but I just leave mine on

    I [started with this, and it worked fairly well. However, it didn't pull the pull-outs up and out like I wanted, but instead out and either down or straight out when using hiking poles.

    I have since switched to the method in the video below, courtesy of BlazeAway. Highly recommended and can be added/removed as needed.

    Thanks for the replies. I like the development of Blaze's idea. I'll probably go with that, it looks simple, lightweight and can be taken off completely.

    Problem solved. Thanks Blaze, keep up the good work :-))

    Great video and idea Corncob - cudos to blazeaway also!
    I got in a fight one time with a really big guy, and he said, "I'm going to mop the floor with your face." I said, "You'll be sorry." He said, "Oh, yeah? Why?" I said, "Well, you won't be able to get into the corners very well."

    Hi Tendertoe. I'd love to see your tarp rigging in person. I plan to be at Zaleski next weekend. Mind if I take a gander? I'm working to get a good setup on my new WBBB/Superfly.

    Thanks,
