Tarp Clamps Make For An Easy Tie-down
Tarp clamps are to be used where tarps are fastened to the tarp poles .They make the whole process simple, stress-free and quick. At first it may seem unimportant and insignificant but a tarp is meant to stay where it is until it gets taken down. Most people would agree that a cover that gets blown away in the wind is not much use at all.
In most cases you can simply tie the tarp down with ball bungees, but then you need to remember that it requires threading through impossible holes and it can get frustrating. By making use of a tarp clamp you can simply snap the device onto your edges and tie it down quite quickly.
Majority of the tarp clamps are made from sturdy, durable plastics that are tough to break. The most attractive feature is the simplicity. They are a breeze to attach to your tarp and once they are set, they will not let go until you remove them yourself. Ideally you will be using them when you are covering smaller items like a boat or a car, but they also come in handy when you are providing shade or trying to create a wind barrier in your garden or out on a picnic for example.
With that being said, you need to know that you get tarp covers for just about any application. In fact they even make them for hurricane seasons, where people have placed them over their entire house to help bolster the roof and prevent the tiles from flying off. In that instance it is probably a good idea to go with a more secure type of tie down like the heavy ratchet straps for example.
The bottom line is that the covers can be used anywhere and for anything, but if you are looking for a quick and easy way to build a custom structure with poles and want to clamp the material fast, then the tarp clamps are a sensible way to go.
