Really stupid question I guess but on the Lunar Duo you have the two manin guy lines and on that line there is a little clip/hook.

what the heck is it for and how do you use it?

I tried to use it to make the fly adjustable but I must be doing something wrong

Does it slide? If it does, and it's like my lunar solo, it's some you can adjust the tension on the vestiblule. Or that's what I use it for.

I haven't set my Duo up since May, but I remember two clips on the line:

- One is used to adjust the tension of the guy line
- The other is used to keep the "non-entry" portion of the vestibule attached to the guy line

I'm guessing that you are talking about the second one.

Does that help?

Yes I assume the second ome you described. Still confused as to how that would work (hard to imagine when you havent pitchwed the tent in front of you) but next time I use the tent I will take a look and see if I can figure it out

Here's a picture of a Lunar Solo that shows the clip holding, as you look at it, the left side to the guy line...

And here's a Gatewood Cape with the same clip...
