Advice on how to use a tensioner, two-hole

Hey all. I have an REI quarter dome 1, and the guylines have 2-hole tensioners. I can’t find any videos that show how to use this type. Can anyone help? Thanks.

@BethinBaltimore Seems like they are like "linelocs"

Here is a YouTube set up for QD 1.  He doesn't do a very good job of guying out the fly but you get the idea.  At 9min and 10s he shows adjusting a lineloc.

Thank you. I actually meant the extra lines that the tent comes with, in addition to the stakes, for securing the tent on a windy day. A few feet of cord with a tensioner on one end, sorry if I didn’t explain it well. I did figure it out, eventually.


No worries.  Glad you were able to figure it out.


Hi @BethinBaltimore .  I really don't have any advice on your question, especially since you have already figured it out.  I just wanted to welcome you to the community.  It's nice to see someone else from Maryland.  Welcome!
