GENERAL Made from 100% waterproof DCF_0.5oz. Measures 9 ft by 7 ft. Eight tie-out anchor points with line tensioners or D-rings. Anchor points disperse tension across a wide area for durability under stress. Eight guylines made form weather resistant low-stretch cord are optional.
Tarp shelter: Pitch with trekking poles to make a two person shelter; with plenty of room for gear storage near the walls. Use triangular style for best stability and weather protection. But try out different ways on your own; rectangular tarps offer great setup versatility.
Large rain canopy: Can be stretched from the corners to make a very spacious rain canopy for large groups.
SETUP FEATURES (Optional Guylines)
Guyline attachment: All guylines come with a small hook on one end. So you can quickly loop it around a tree , snap onto a peg, or attach to another section of cord . No knots required! The open end of the cord runs through the line tensioner on your tarp for quick adjustment. This means you can fix the tension or even re-position the tarp without stepping out into the elements.
Rain canopy setup: How much cord you’ll need at each tie-off will vary depending on surroundings, so be ready to rig guyline extensions as required. Typically, you would carry extra cord and figure it out on the spot. But over the long haul, cutting and tying pieces of cord becomes increasingly wasteful and annoying. So we have devised a more elegant sectional cord solution.
Sectional Cords: Combine and disassemble sections of cord in a snap, so you get just the length you need, just where you need it. No leftovers. No cutting. No knots. Unused sections can be utilized for other needs around camp, or combine all sections to make a very long rope. Tarps and sectional cord were designed to work as a unit, so we highly recommend this combination. The ease, quickness, and versatility of setup and disassembly will change your tarp game forever! Check it out.
DID YOU KNOW? A narrow peg fits right through the line tensioner, so bottom anchor points can be staked directly to the ground without guylines.
NOTE Avoid setting up your tarp near a fire pit. Sparks flying from wood fire can burn holes in DCF tarps. As with all DCF products, avoid sharp objects as they may puncture the material. But if you do get a small cut or hole, repairing DCF is super easy on the fly by simply gluing a patch over the hole. You can add some Repair Patches to your order.
