I've heard ducktape, but ug, what a pain to take down! Was thinking about using rachetting tie down straps (like for trucks and stuff) as they'd be easy to put on and tighten up. I would of course need to candy cane the rebar, yes? Any other suggestions on this.

We use adjustable/spliced rope for tiedowns, but ratchet straps work too. Our ropes are looped over the joints before the tarp goes on. We talk about a second tarp, it would go between the poles and the cover. Putting a tarp over the cover is a pain, our camp mates tried it on theirs one year, taped it down... when it let loose, they couldn't get up to reattached it.
A look at half (well, a third) of our shade. We "clamshell" two facing each other, with camo netting in between. We use the dingle at our regional burn. This is with the walls off. As you can see, the roof becomes the back wall. We run the ropes straight down the legs in back, and criss-cross them in the front.
