    Cottage vendor that sells tarps with lineloc 3's sewn into the tieouts?

    At one point I seem to remember a website that made tarps and had(as an option) linelocs sewn into the tieouts. Just to be clear I'm talking about the linelocs from backwoods day dreamer-http://www.backwoodsdaydreamer.com/products-page/plastic-hardware/- I can't for the life of me think of what vendor it was but I keep thinking there is someone who has that option available. I like the idea of having the linelocs as adjustment pieces after seeing them in action on some YouTube videos about the ENO profly. Seems like a quick way to set tension and a slippery half hitch should lock it in place I would think. Anyone have any experience using these as tarp tensioners?

    Hyperlite mountain gear also known as HMG has those type line locs on the cuben tarps they sell. They are a standard feature not a option I think I recall.
    I like refried beans. That's why I wanna try fried beans, because maybe they're just as good and we're just wasting time. You don't have to fry them again after all.

    It is a ways off due to financial issues but for what it's worth when I get some spare cash I don't need for bills you will be getting an order from me! That toxaway tarp with some of the upgrade options is everything I want in a tarp and I will be more than happy to fork over the money to a fellow American who is doing what he can to support his family while still living the American dream by doing what he loves! Okay sorry that was a bit political and philosophical but that's how I feel. If there is a way to support American businesses and get what I want I will.

    No need to worry about being political or philosophical with me. The support and sentiment is appreciated. It's why I buy cottage made goods as much as possible myself.

    thats an interesting idea. i'm about to make a tarp and i forgot to get the D rings. i might pick up some of these while i'm at it to see how well they'd work.

    In most situations they work great! I tied a simple overhand knot about 4" from the end (slack end), so the cord doesn't get sucked all the way into the linelock when I'm tearing down camp.

    Call it a positive or a negative, but in a really strong wind they don't hold as well. Personally, I'd rather the linelock give way rather than the tarp rip a seam.

    Here's my build thread with a video that demonstrates the linelock from BWDD.

    If one was worried about it slipping that would be very easy to stop via a slippery half hitch under the line loc in the same way a slippery half hitch is used with cinch buckles or rings suspensions.
