When I first made my tarp I wanted to make it as light as possible. With that thought, I used Prusik knots for the adjustment on my continuous ridge line for the lightest possible solution. That lasted for the past 4 years until I got frustrated with fiddling with them in the cold. My search for a very lightweight replacement brought me to the Tarp Tick. Quick to set up and easy to adjust. Just about as lightweight as the Prusik alone but with far more ease of use. It locks down tight, releases easily. Just get the Tarp Tick and skip the headache.
Thanks so much for your awesome review Alex! We love to hear that the TarpTick made your tarp set up much simpler. It really does make a difference when your hands are cold!
