Hello! Here's a cool trick for getting your guy lines real tight in winter. I'm not sure if it's been done before but it's simple, fast, very efficient and you don't have to take off your mitts.

It's a nice thing to have on your winter tent and comes in real handy when the temp drops.

Hay Franc that looks like a cool idea ill have to remember that and i'm sure it will work in any outdoor condition like when its raining. It looks like it would also be a quick operation too.

Thanks! It's real fast, it takes about 3 sec. to get them tight. I use this mostly on deadman anchors because you have to let them sinter a bit before tightening and i hate freezing my fingers.

This would work great for guying small trees after planting too. It is faster and easier on the fingers. Tnx for the tip.

Let's see if this works. Just type "img" in square brackets followed by the URL of the image location followed by "/img" in square brackets. This does not put the image directly on the forum, something Dave is working on, but at least shows the image.
