need help with making tent tie-out points on 07/22/2010 14:24:40 MDT Print View

I'm currently working on a rather large single wall Tunnel tent, and am in need of input for the tie-out points. The poles fit into sleeves that are sewn into the shell of the tent. Material is 1.1 silnylon. I would like to make 3 or 4 tie out points for each of the poles, and probably a few other tie outs on the shell, probably bonded on. Suggestions and tips or links would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for the help.

Thanks for the link, there's an incredible amount of information on there! I haven't been able to find an explanation of the tieouts, though. I can see that they are triangles of silnylon, but how do you attach the guy line to it?
