    How do you hang your tarp??

    Hello everyone, I have been hanging for years since I discovered Shug... I have tried different ways to hang my tarp over the years and now I just thought I would ask you all what is the easiest way that you have found.
    The reason I am asking is I just came back from hanging in the woods and I just spent too much time hanging my tarp....

    I find the easiest way is two lines coming from tarp ridgeline.
    Remember....a good tarp pitch takes a bit if practice.

    I use Dutch StingerZ and have them clipped to my tarp where they stay with my lines. I go once around the tree and form a "V" with Zingit and lock it on to the stingerZ. It takes a couple of minutes at most and then I stake it out. I can estimate where I'm centered between the trees (if that is what I want ) and then I hang the hammock. Easy peasy.

    I've used other methods with other materials (knots, cordage, etc) and they all worked but I've settled on this as my preferred approach.

    I like a Dutch CRL with a Dutch hook and a Flyz. Tarp is connected to the CRL via prusiks.

    I currently use a Dutch CRL with a Dutch Hook and a Wasp with prusik knots and soft shackles. I'm getting tired of dealing with the prusiks getting jammed up and having to remove and retie them.

    I recently ordered a Superfly and looking at using the split ridgelines with 2 Stingerz like Skytow mentioned.

    Was using a split with Dutch Tarp Flyz. Just got a CRL from Autumn Ultralight with the double toggles going to see how that works.

    Check out NAMA Claws.

    Claws go on continuous ridgeline; replace soft shackles with mini continuous loops of Zing-It or similar, girth hitched to tarp D-rings.

    Split ridge line using Dutch stingers on each end. Then a loop of shock cord on each tie-out with a Dutch flea on it, which attaches to Zing-it on my stakes.
