    Closing up a Kelty Noah 12x12

    How do you close the ends of this tarp? The only way I can thing of is staking them on opposite sides, but that requires carrying more stakes. Is there a way to quickly close them up?
    Thanks, JW

    Does it have tie-outs in the center? Can you pitch it off center to get "doors" off each end?

    It has four tie out points down the side in square config. Move your end stakes in one point and then cross the end points over and use the exsisting stake. Syb I think has a perfect example in his gallery here.
    Look up before you hook up!!

    I pitch it in a rectangular configuration and I stake the 2 inner tie outs so the edges can be pulled together to make doors. I just need to find a way to join the 2 doors. I would take pics, but Sandy is a little wild right now.
    Edit:I'll take a look at that TFCRick.

    Thanks WK2! That is a good example. As you can see the ends can reach over to the stakes and give a good closure. May have helped in the picture above to hang it a smidge higher.

    After seeing the pic I understand this, and it's just what I was looking for.
    Thanks for the help guys!
