Ideas, advice, tips, and tricks regarding shelter, shade, tents, and camping. Yes, this includes RV's too.
In case you ever thought you'd like to make your own tarp clips rather than buying them (or, say, you wanted to do some kind of custom thing) then here's an interesting solution. The short answer is it's like a kind of clothes-pin slot with a larger hole at the vertex; you put the tarp edge in folded over, then slide a pin inside the fold through the hole so the pin/tarp combo is too big to fit through the slot. If the embedded video is broken, here's the link
May your deeds return to you tenfold,

No kidding... jesus... wth is that thing. Why not just use a vertical press? Sideways thing seemed unnecessary, but really cool.
