Uses (Photos)

Garage in a Box recover. (Portable Garage)

Garage in a Box recovered using Tarp Buddy. Used a 30 x 50 foot 8 mil tarp. Garage frame approximately 13 feet wide by 20 feet long. Double folded tarp in half creating a double layer and a tarp size of 25 x 30. The 30 foot length was used for the length of the garage frame and trimmed off after. The excess tarp material is enough to use for both ends at later date. The 25 foot length was perfect going from one side to the other and allowing about 6 inches of extra material laying on the ground on each side like original cover. Used 40 Tarp Buddy devices. (16 on each end and 4 on each side)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Create your own inexpensive covers

Tarp Buddy allows you to create inexpensive covers for grills, AC units, patio furniture, boats, cars, and so much more. Since you no longer need the factory grommets, you can cut your tarp material to whatever shape and size you need and attach the Tarp Buddy devices using zip ties in the locations as needed. Then run an elastic cord through the side hole on the hub.

Use with Trekking Poles

The Tarp Buddy is designed so the points of trekking (hiking) poles or ski poles can be inserted into the recessed hole for creating vertical legs for shelters. The recessed hole also allows 1/2 inch conduit to be inserted or can even self thread itself onto a 1/2 inch water pipe for more options for creating vertical legs as supports for shelters and canopies.

Hang From Above

Tarp Buddy allows you to easily create an overhead shelter by hanging from a tree from above. Simply install the Tarp Buddy on the top of the tarp and can use a zip tie to secure on the bottom of the tarp. Tie a cord through the side hole of the hub on the Tarp Buddy and hang it where needed. Use a Tarp Buddy in each bottom corner to take out the slack and stake them out keeping everything tight.
