Make your own tarp clips-fasteners when camping from branches...

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

If you’ve ever done any camping with a tarp, you may have run into times when you wish you had more grommet holes or some way to attach to a certain place on your tarp…

One thing people have done is tied rocks or small pebbles using something like a clove hitch or slip knot.  I’ve found this to be a less desirable way to accomplish the task.  For two reasons: if you’re using a small tarp, tying a rock in just a few places can quickly shrink up your tarp, in turn providing you with less surface area for shelter.  Another reason I don’t like tying rocks is the cordage puts stress on the tarp that can ruin a nice high dollar tarp.

This whole idea of making a wood tarp clip from naturally provided branches derived when I was travelling across country on my bicycle and I needed to attach in the middle area of my poncho where there was no grommet hole or loop…

This is one of those skills that may just come in handy one day.  I now make these and keep a few in there with my cordage pouch…
