A Simple Turnbuckle

My tarp was a bit saggy, and a trucker's hitch didn't sufficiently tension the guyropes. I wanted a simple solution.

I bent the top of an aluminium tent peg to form a semicircle. As you can see in the photo, you can use the peg to twist and lever the guy rope and then lock the peg using the semicircle.
