With my rigid-frame shade structure, I would say parachute cord is probably sufficient. If you are simply tying shade netting between two vehicles, use 3/8" rope.

It would suck majorly to have my "home" blown away while I was gone. Any suggestions for a different type of rope besides used climbing rope (only because its a pain to find) would be awesome, thankyou.

put duct tape, or gorilla tape over both sides of the grommet. 1999 was the last year I lost a grommet.
