Tub floor

$62.00

Increase the storm worthiness of your tarp setup with a clip-in tub floor. Extensions at the head and foot provide a bit of extra splash protection and drape out of the way when not needed.

For the simplest setup, clip the top four corners to your tarp using the shock cord and mitten hooks. This suspends the top of the tub and allows the floor to hang. Deploy the head and foot extensions by clipping them to your tarp above, and for serious weather, clip the sides up to the center of your tarp's ridgeline. For extra security in windy environments, clip out the bottom corners of the tub as well.

Offered in two lengths which partner well with all of our Cirriform tarps, tapered tarps, rectangular tarps, and many other a-frame style tarps. For a more minimalist tub, please see our Simple Tub.

Made in the USA from imported materials.

Overview:

To get your floor rigged up to use with your tarp, you will install lengths of shock cord at various locations on the floor. Mitten hooks tied to the ends of these cords will allow you to clip the floor to your tarp. If you're using our 1P Cirriform Tarp, please see below the instructions for suggested cord lengths.


Start with the upper corners of the tub-floor to create a minimal setup.

  • Pitch your tarp (err on the wider side) and lay the floor out about where you'd like it positioned.
  • Run some shock cord from a front corner to the associated corner of the tarp. The cord should be taut, but not stretched.
  • Cut two pieces of cord at that length, one for each front corner.
  • Tie a mitten hook to one end on each cord. We like to use a clinch knot.
  • Tie a loop in the other ends of the cords. You can use a simple overhand loop knot or a bowline.
  • Attach the cords to the tub's front corners using a girth hitch.
  • Repeat for the rear corners, taking a new measurement to determine the length of the cords.

  • To use, clip each corner of the floor out to your tarp's corners. If the cord is slack for your widest pitches, you should trim the cords. For narrower pitches, take up slack in the cords by doubling over the cord; ie, run the cord through the tarp's tie-out and then clip it back to the tub.

Secure the sides for additional stability and protection (optional):

  • Start with the tarp pitched about as high as you'd ever pitch it and the top corners of the floor clipped to the tarp.
  • Run a length of shock cord from one mid tie-out point on the floor to the other, passing it through an overhead hang loop (on your tarp) on the way. Cut it about 5" longer.
  • Tie a loop in the cord at its center.
  • Install a cord lock by passing the free ends of the cord through the cord lock. Position the cord lock at the knot.
  • Tie a mitten hook to each free end of the cord.

  • To use, pass one end of the cord through the overhead loop on your tarp, then clip each end to the floor's mid-points. Raise the floor's sides by cinching the cord with the cordlock.

  • Alternatively, cut two shorter lengths of shock cord with a mitten hook tied to one end of each cord. Tie loops at the other ends, and attach to the floor's midpoints with a girth hitch. This method will allow you to clip the floor out to tie-outs along your tarp's edges or to panel tie-outs, though without the adjustability provided by the cordlock.

Deploy the head and foot extensions for additional protection (optional):

  • Start with the tarp pitched about as high as you'd ever pitch it and the top corners of the floor clipped to the tarp.
  • Run a length of shock cord from tie-out on the floors front edge to a hang loop above. Cut it about 5" longer.
  • Tie a loop in the cord at one end.
  • Install a cord lock by passing the free end of the cord through the cord lock. Position the cord lock at the knot.
  • Pass the free end through the tie-out on the front edge of the floor.
  • Tie a mitten hook to the free end of the cord.
  • Repeat at the foot edge of the floor.

  • To use, clip the mitten hook to the above hang loop and adjust using the cordlock.

Connect the bottom corners of the tub for additional stability (optional):

  • Start with the top corners of the floor clipped to the pitched tarp.
  • Repeat the process used for the upper corners, but instead of measuring to the tarp's tie-outs, measure to the associated stakes for the tarp.

  • Alternatively, use some minimal stakes to directly stake the bottom corners to the ground. This can help reduce potential tangling of the cords.

Suggested cord lengths for using the floor with a 1P Cirriform Tarp.*

  • Front corners (upper): 16" | 41 cm
  • Rear corners (upper): 16" | 41 cm
  • Front corners (lower): 30" | 76 cm
  • Front corners (lower): 28" | 71 cm
  • Midpoint: tbd"
  • Head extension: 30" | 76 cm
  • Foot extension: 16" | 41 cm

    *Please understand that these are suggestions only. You may find that other lengths suit you better depending on how you prefer to pitch your Cirriform.

Product Availability

Unless otherwise stated, if the item is available to add to your cart, then it is in-stock and available to ship. Please see the shipping tab for expected fulfillment times.

If the item is marked as "sold out" or "available to backorder" then please refer to the production calendar and the FAQ below for more information.


Q: What is the "Inactive Product" Category?

A: Products in the "Inactive Product" category are not expected to be available any time soon. While I intend to offer them again, they are 'on-hold' indefinitely so that we can focus attention on other products.


Q: Why is so much stuff sold out?!

A: Our capacity is very limited, and we can't make products nearly quickly enough to meet demand. We only sell what I have in-stock, and don't typically take backorders. I know this can make it hard for you to plan, but in the longer term, it should help us to grow and to serve you better in the long term. See the last question for more info about this.


Q: When can I expect the item I'm interested in to become available?

A: For most items, please refer to the production calendar at the bottom of this page. This calendar shows when I expect to work on more substantial products. For some accessory products, production may not always be scheduled in advance and availability may be unpredictable.

FYI: If you do not see the item that you are interested in, then I do not know when it may become available (I don't have a private schedule beyond what's shown!).


Q: Can I pre-order, back-order, or reserve an item?

A: I'm afraid not. Out of fairness to everyone, I don't make special arrangements to reserve products. On rare occasions, I may open a product up for back-ordering to everyone (or a new product for pre-ordering). When this happens, it's made available to order on the website. If you are signed up for the stock notification, you will receive a notice that the item is available to order.


Q: Can you let me know when the item becomes available?

A: Yes. On the product page, enter your email address in the space provided to be automatically notified when inventory becomes available. If you don't see where you can do this, please let me know; sometimes there's a fluke in the settings and the field doesn't show. Please note that the email notification could get filtered out as spam. You can try to 'whitelist' info@yamamountaingear.com to make sure the email comes through.


Q: Why do you do things this way, and what are you doing to improve the situation?

A: For years I followed the more common back-order model, basically making everything to order. This approach made it challenging to increase production, limited time available to design new products or refine existing ones, impacted my personal/outdoor time, and meant long waits to get your gear delivered. I changed my approach when I moved to Montana in 2019. Offering only what's already made allows me to work and plan more efficiently, and opens up hiring opportunities.


NOTES ON USING THE CALENDAR

- For products shown on the calendar, you can typically expect the item to be made available towards the end, or soon after the period shown on the calendar. Sometimes, however, some items may be listed earlier in the period. For example, if the calendar shows that I'm working on tapered tarps, certain sizes may become available earlier within the period with other sizes coming later.

- Items that specify "ongoing production" mean that we are continually working on these items and doing our best to maintain inventory. If the item or a particular size is sold out, you can expect it to likely become available soon.

- Please note that you can change the month shown on the calendar using the arrows at the top.
