We have frames that are a true 10 x 10 and no one in Houston carries that size. The 10 x 10 tarps you have that are slightly smaller works great. we use the ball bungees and the tarps allow us to stretch the tarps with no sagging. Using for shade the light weight work great and at the price you have we only need to use them once to get our moneys worth. However we feel we will get many uses.
