Here is how I secure the tarp on the tip of the A-Frame.
This is a frame hanger
Insert here on both sides, make sure you don't poke the strap inside, go between
This is a non-slip rubber mat to protect the tarp.
- Find the the middle of the tarp's rope hole and tie it to the tip, leave about 4" rope away from the tip.
- Use another rope to tie the middle hole to the other side tip, this will secure the tip of the tarp to the A-Frame.
- Tie the 2 corners of the tarp to the rig's front and back or trees
- Tie the other 2 corners to trees, I use the top of the pop-up tent to keep it up or I use a pole
This set up uses a larger tarp and a middle pole, I used the trees to tie the tarps corners. I could use this set up to protect the screen room from heavy rain or keeping it dry.
With the screen room up, I use bungee cords for the top corners, this setup gives me front shelter for the bikes and stuff, make sure the cord does not snug the vent cover.
