Best way to attach mid panel tie outs? on 08/31/2011 13:05:12 MDT Print View

What is the best way to attach mid panel tie outs to a tarp? I'm modifying my myog 8x10 tarp, and part of that effort is to re-do the mid panel pull outs. I just hope the original sewing thread holes heal up enough to seal with some more seam sealer.

Thanks,
BM

If the tie-outs are mid-panel and not on a seam, try laminating a patch over the sew holes like Jim Colten's article.

All of my tie-outs are this way and his have been holding for a while now.

Enjoy,

Dave

P.S. this is assuming it is a silnylon tarp.
