    works well, hard to grip

    Christine Borgfeld (verified owner)

    I bought a set of these because they look like the best option for keeping my lines attached to the tarp. (This makes for quick packing – I just slide the lines into the tarp sleeve without rolling them up). The hardware works well and weigh practically nothing. Unfortunately the tarpworms are smaller than I expected, and I found it difficult to hold it with one hand while making and sliding the loop over the end – my fingers kept getting in the way. After some practice, I found that it helps to slide the shock cord knot to be right next to the tarpworm, and then I can grip it without covering up the bottom half of the metal. This helps, but I find the fleaz easier to use (I happened to buy one to play with).

    So for those who want lines attached to the tarp and the ease of use of the fleaz, I came up with this…. attach the fleaz to the tarp with shock cord as it’s intended. Set up your tie out line with loops at BOTH ends. Attach one end to the tarp ring next to the shock cord – this will never be under tension, its just for convenience so they stay together. The other end of the line loops over the stake. Now put the MIDDLE of the line in the hook on the fleaz and pull to tension, then lock the excess cord on the fleaz notches. The excess line will hang in a loop between the tarp and the fleaz. Basically you are just attaching the free end of the line to the tarp so they don’t get separated.

    The moral of the story – If you are unsure which goodies to buy, get one of each and play with them before you decide on a setup. It’s much easier to understand how they work once you have one in your hands and can try using it in different configurations.

    Keeps up with the simplistic goal of the companyTried these out for the first time this weekend and what can I say. They are super simple to use. I ordered mine with shock cord and held my tarp taut all night through wind and rain. Hard to ask any more out of such an excellent product. Customer support was top notch as well! Wish all companies would follow Dutchware’s exemplary service.

    Will the end spliced of the cord easily pass through the hole of the Tarp Worm? Wondering how easy it is to remove, and reattach the cord?
    Thanks

      We have it buried and then knotted on the end. If you unknot the rope you can take it off however it may be extremely tight to get off the buried end.

  10. Question

    TylerCampbell

    Does the zing it / reflect it offered come w/ a spliced loop on the end? I would assume that the loop is intended to attach to the stake and the other end attached to the tarp worm, correct?

      absolutely. There is one spliced loop and that goes to the tie out at the stake. There is also a loop of shock cord that would be larks headed on at the d ring on tie out of your tarp.

    Dutch Bling is life

    I have these on two of my tarps now. I love them. They make staking out my tarp really quick and easy. These are just the bee’s knees to use.
    Customer service from Dutch and his crew is always top notch.

    Forget knots, use Dutchbling

    I bought six of these for myself and six for a camping buddy. We opted for tarp worms with hardware and reflect it and the reflect it works great in the dark. We use these for our tarp tieouts and they make setting up a breeze. We usually only need four, but we have two spares in case of windy weather. I can highly recommend these.

    Quick to adjust and quick to set

    The whole reason for me getting these tarp worms was to eliminate each little pieces. They are so easy to set up and adjust. Simplicity to a tee.
