Advice Please: Adding Loops to a Cuben Tarp on 04/21/2010 11:21:41 MDT Print View

I recently acquired a MLD Grace Solo tarp in new condition. However, the original owner had it built to minimize weight so it lacks the inside hang loops on the ridgeline. I would really like to be able to use this with a bug bivy so I would now like to add two small hang loops to facilitate this.

Ron Bell has graciously offered to send me a couple patches that, as he describes, I'll "need to stick them on (peel and stick) and then sew on the loops and then put a patch on the outside to seal".

However, I wondering if there might be a no-sew option that would allow me to accomplish what I am trying to do.

Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Well heck, Chris Wallace did this just a few days ago. Never mind, sorry for the wasted space.
