Taut Line Hitch For Tarp Shelter Ridgeline
In this third installment of my heat reflective tarp shelter series, I show the simple knot used to secure the ridgeline between your two fixed points. The Taut-Line Hitch. Using the instructions from the second video of the series, I use my braided ridgeline eyelet to secure the ridgeline on the first fixed point. Then I take the other end around the second fixed point and use the Taut Line Hitch to secure the ridgeline. Its a perfect know that gives you total control of tautness as well as the angle of the ridgeline.
