The Tarpworm is beyond light. It not only is a simple way to tie out your tarp, it also has a built in tarp tensioner. Just simply stake out your tarp and then pull the cord and loop it around the tail. When you want to release it, simply pull the cord and it releases your tie-out. The Tarpworm works well with our 3/32" shock cord sold separately here. Weighs just 1 gram. Made by Dutchware and of course Made in the USA.
