    Wanted: Pics of tarp door stake-outs

    I'm getting my first tarp with doors! I'm sure that this group has tried every conceivable arrangement for guying the doors both closed and open. So, if you have any photos (or links to videos) handy that show your method, please bring them on!

    You can see my doors closed and staked on this video. I know I have more I just don't know where.
    Sometimes I use line and sometimes I use shock cord if closing both ends as you can just push the door open to get out without un-staking.

    Here's one for you. On my doors, I have a piece of shock cord (which is nice for when my foot gets caught on it trying to get in), with a prusik on it that has a plastic hook. To close the doors, I hook the plastic hook to the tarps corner D-ring. Now if I want to open them, I can slide that hook up and down where I need it. Hope that's not too confusing.

    no pics - but i like criss-crossing the door lines and wrapping them around the base of the support tree, clipping them together on the backside of said tree.
    creates a good snowplow effect, with a sliver of door closure. no stakes needed, and works to extend the tarp length, making a little vestibule.

    These are all great ideas folks! Thanks a lot and keep 'em coming.
    I fully expected a dozen different variations. After all, it's our nature here at HF!!

    What he said. Less stakes. I use shock cord to make entry and exit a bit easier. My buddy thought it was funny and referred to it as the whitey tightey entry. (Gentleman and some ladies may get the reference)

    Staked to the side

    After entering the tarp for the night I bring one side of the door inside with me and it stays in place. The other stays attached to the stake outside.
