I came across this a while ago and was discussing with another site member today. I figured I would put the link up and maybe it will help someone out. I have done this for both of my Eureka tents and it works well. Its alot cheaper than a fp from the manufacturer. Plus it gives ya the ability to fast pitch you tent with a little ingenuity.

Here is a link to a grommet kit. Its the cheapest I have found online($5 usd.)

One of the biggest things I personally like about this is the fact that you can account for your vestibule space to keep your gear off of wet ground and you can use what ever material you choose to suit your requirements. If your tent has quick release for the fly just add them to the fold in the webbing. You can pick them up fairly cheap online or at a REI, etc. or even contact your tents manufacturer.
