Take the ridge line right through the loops the personally I use prussic knots and bungees to keep the tarp taught which then forms an automatic drip point

I can't post a photo at the moment because of low memory but I run one long line through the tarp loops then use prussic loops and short bungees to pull the tarp taught which makes automatic drip points

If it is done properly, a prussic loop grips so tightly that it will not allow the rain to flow down the hammock suspension line, therefore the rain will drip vertically from the 'loops.
