    Yeah, I defiantly wouldn't remove the ones already there.

    Another thing I have been doing for a long time (& maybe you are too) is to leave a loose loop of line between the two tie outs, with the longer line tied to the loop. That way I am only tying one extra line on each side of the tarp.
    The longer line can slide on the loop for times when I run it to a handy limb, etc, that is off center.
    The long line is left on the loop permanently too. I just secure it in a bundle just like the corner tie outs.
    don`t leave the CREATOR out of the creation!

    Very nice. You did a great job on it.

    I'm looking into adding tie-outs to my winter tarp using the grip-clips/balloon trick.

    Don't forget the balloons! Do you remember what my SuperFly looked like at Hot Springs? Those clips slide even a little and it will leave a nice scar on your sil. The balloons work great, just don't leave home without them.

    Off to find "camo" colored balloons.
