    You could use replacement sling shot tubes.
    Its a proven fact that 78.4% of all statstics are made up on the spot.

    Boy, you are in luck. I just happen to have two of them that you can have for free! They look neat! PM me your address.

    By the way, the others suggested are better, but not so neat. Personally, I use a simple loop of 1/8" bungee on the tarp tieout with a lineloc attached (Shane's method). For silnylon tarps the bungee loop is about 4" to 6" diameter; for cuben tarps it's much smaller, maybe 2" diameter.

    Thanks Hawk-eye! That is exactly the one I was looking for. Those will go nicely with my new winter tarp.

    I just use a 24" length of 1/8" shock cord, tied into a loop. That goes from tarp to stake and works like a charm.
