Yeah they are supposed to have the rope looped through them and that causes the water to drip off instead of following the rope down. When I didn't use them I seemed to get water that sheeted down more than wicked down in a heavy 2 day rain. I called up Clark and asked for a set as they were not shipping them with the hammocks at the time. With the rings in place that stopped. I imagine they would stop sheeting even if they were out a bit from the tarp. I would personally prefer they stay under though. Having had my hammock and clothes in the pockets soaked once in a cold rain I don't want to repeat that again....ever.
