Update 12/5/17 -Please note that we have switched to providing pre-cut reinforcement panels for all tie-outs, ridgeline, and panel pulls at no extra charge. This saves you the hassle of cutting them out :). Instructions will be updated soon to reflect this change, but just an FYI.
*Note - instructions linked below are for the HEX12 standard tarp kit. For the HEX12 ultralight, you can use the same build process, but in place of sewn reinforcement triangles we recommend the bonded no-sew reinforcement technique detailed in this blog post.
