Tarpworms, Hookworms and Silkworms$3.95 AUD
The Tarpworm is beyond light. It not only is a simple way to tie out your tarp, it also has a built in tarp tensioner. Just simply stake out your tarp and then pull the cord and loop it around the tail. When you want to release it, simply pull the cord and it releases your tie-out. They are sold attached with a loop of 2mm shock cord. They can also have Zing it spliced with a loop on the end for a nice clean look or you can purchase the Zing it here and splice it yourself or simply tie a knot. Or you can use Lawson Glow Wire found here and never trip over your tie out again.
Weighs less than 1 gram (4 grams with Zing it or Lash It).
The Hookworm works the same as the Tarpworm, but the convenient hook means you can remove your tie-outs and simply hook them to the 2mm shock cord loop on your tie-out points. They work best with 2mm shock cord and they have just the right amont of click to make sure they are secured, yet they are easy enough to put on and take off. The hook can be opened up slightly to accept 3mm shock cord. You have the option of getting them with or without 1.8metres of Zing It or Lash it. The Zing it or Lash It will have a loop on one end and a bury on the other end so they can't be removed from the Hookworm.
The Silkworm is the same as above only they are adapted so you can sew them on. The slot fits 1/2 inch grosgrain snugly. These are great for Cuben Fiber or Polyester tarps where tarp tensioners are not that important. You have the option of getting them with or without 1.8metres foot of our Mallee Wire (1.75mm Dyneema). The Mallee Wire will have a loop on one end and bury on the other end so they can't be removed from the worm.
Each are made from Aluminum and are meant for tie outs and not ridgeline.
