Kat,

My Google can't find the JRBs tensioners.

Do you have a link where I could see/buy them?

First of all, I'm not a fan of line-tension gizmos because I've found that SilNylon tarps are incredibly strong. Secondly, I've discovered that most shock cord, and surgical tubing creations don't work when cold (Silicone tubing works pretty well though).

I'm just not seeing the need for them.

I think the original use was with regards to Sil sag.

The tarp is setup with tensioners taught, as the tarp sags, the tensioner retracts to maintaine the pitch.

I don't think the intended use was to provide stretch for wind gusts.

I saw this video a while back where a guy mentioned ripping, that's what got me interested.
