Grabbits replace torn grommets, make tarps usable anywhere

Grabbit Tool Company, Littleton, Colo., has developed a family of products that allow tarp users “to manage tarps and protect property in ways never before possible.”

Offered in three sizes (20-inch Long Grabbit, 6-inch EZ Grabbit and 1.5-inch Mini Grabbit), Grabbits allow users to mount tarps to structures, seam multiple tarps together, replace torn grommets, and firmly and reliably grab tarps anywhere — all in seconds.

Using the patented technology of linear grappling, the two-piece Grabbits are easy to use. Simply place the “dogbone” piece precisely where you want to grab the tarp, roll the tarp around the dogbone, and slide the sleeve over the dogbone. A tug on a leader rope engages the two pieces together, trapping the tarp and creating a high-strength hold.

The dogbone can also be screw-mounted to an exterior wall, fence or vehicle, allowing instant cover area for equipment, supplies, livestock, feed, construction projects, disaster recovery, pet runs, sporting events, entertaining and campsites.

Grabbing a tarp over a linear edge distributes the load, allowing users to secure their tarps tightly without risk of tearing.

Grabbits work well with poly tarps, canvas tarps, plastic sheeting, linens, vinyl signs/banners, mosquito netting, burlap, landscape fabric — any pliable fabric. They easily handle up to eight layers of poly tarp or four layers of canvas tarp at a time.

Grabbits are available at the following retailers: Home Depot, Menards, Harbor Freight, Cabela's, Gander Mountain, Sportsman's Warehouse, Academy Sports, Orschelns, Mills Fleet Farm, Canadian Tire, and participating Ace Hardware and True Value Hardware stores.
