Place rope through eyebolt
Then go back through ring on shade sail as shown i.e.: come up through bottom of the ring
Then back through the eyebolt
At this stage tie the fixing point off loosely and move on to the next corner.
Once all corners are attached loosely then start to work around the sail tensioning each point as tight as you can by hand.
Once all points are reasonably tight using a steel bar or similar (bare hands are OK if they are tough enough to handle rope burn) tighten the sails fully.
Then wrap the excess rope as shown around the sail a minimum of 3 rotations, preferably more.
Tie sail off using a minimum of 2 ½ hitches (granny Knots). Note that load is always placed on the fixing point and not the sail when tensioning. Tie each corner off as you go around.
Tuck excess rope away and finished tie off should look similar to this.
