    Adjustable Guy Lines Without Hardware

    You guys showed me how to do it, so I shared it with the readers of the SNO blog:

    Great video. I do the reverse of your set up. I have the continuous loop prusik larksheaded on the tarp and the fixed loop goes to the stake. This allows adjustment from under the tarp which is handy in wet weather. Also it allows the guyline to be adjusted very short (as short as 4 inches on my guylines) if I want the tarp to be very close to the ground.

    I have the same set up as well. Only difference is that I have included a small loop of stretch cord for some give.

    I'm having a hard time picturing this, because I'm such a noob at this. The ability to adjust this very short is a huge advantage, and I'd really like to understand this better. Do you have any pix of this setup? I mean that you already have -- I don't want you to go to the trouble of setting it up. Or maybe a link to someone else's picture that demonstrates the same technique?

    Here is my version which is the same as gmctr with the addition of a shock cord loop.
    I also tie off the end of the guy line to the tie-out on the tarp as a fail safe in case the shock cord breaks.

    The other end of the guy line is attached to the stake with a marlin spike hitch.
