Prussic at the tarp to single line with a small fixed loop at the end for going over the stake is the THIRD method I've used, and the one I've stuck with. It is a winner.

I usually just put a marlin spike hitch around the stake and put it in the ground

Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees.
The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy,
while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn."

I use to use both self tensioners and prussics, now I just use a single, plain ol' line of Zing-It. Seems easiest for me. KISS, etc...
