Top Tarp Tips Part 3 - Buried Sand Bags

Stay cool on the beach and turn your tarp into a beach shelter, no pegs needed!

Step 1. Attach lengths of Fredd to the tarp at the leading corners and at the lifter tabs halfway along the sides. Loop around the top of your sticks and down to the sand.

Step 2. Fill your bag with sand and attach the Fredd cord.

Step 3. Scoop out a hole in the sand and bury the bag. You could also bury a stick, this also works on snow.

Pro Tip. Quickly attach Fredd to your Rig Tarp with our Clipper accessory carabiners.
