"Hard plastic teeth, I've used them off and on for about 3 years so far no holes. But if it's going to be very windy I don't put up a back awning and that's what I mainly use them for."

"I had several sets of these a while back and they eventually caused my tarp to tear. Luckily it was a $15 rain tarp from home depot and was replacable. I ended up throwing the shark clips away due to the fact that they could cause holes and damage."

Larry Sohn replied to peter brown's discussion attaching banner to tent
"What type of tent? makes a big difference. For the trimline: I have a set of poles that extend up from the awning poles. That makes for the banner framework. Attach with straps or bungees. For the popup: I use 4) bungees, one from each corner to the…"

"Depends on how high you set the legs. Set up your tent as if at a show and measure. As for width, you want to try and use expandable straight poles from corner to corner and use curtains wider then the 10 foot width of a side, bunched up. Larry…"
