    Grip Clips??

    For those of you that have used them, and used them long term? What are the drawbacks of using them on a PU coated tarp long term & short term? Anything better?
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming "WOO-HOO, what a ride!!"

    If you use balloons to hold them in place, they aren't bad. Otherwise they WILL slip not grip on sil. I have not used them on just coated nylon, but I bet they hold better than they do on sil.

    I suppose I'm going to have to order some of the grip clips now. It looks like it would be rough on the silnylon though.

    I wish you could just order a hammock, or a tarp, that was a complete package, w/o having to get accessories from 15 different places. They start getting awfully jimmy rigged.

    Superfly comes with everything, including side wall tie-outs. Brandon also said he would put them on the MJ for a few extra bucks in another thread.
