My review is for the model BT1010 blue tarp. It is advertised as a 10' x 10' tarp; it is not that large. It measures 9' 2" x 9' 6" overall.
The material is very lightweight and if backlit, you can actually see through it.
When I took it from the wrapper, there was a lot of jingling. Not a good sign, because it means the metal grommets are loose. Grommet halves must be firmly stamped together in order to have any strength at all and these were extremely loose. So loose that I easily pushed them out of their holes in the plastic. The ones that were loose were not at the corners. Those were fairly tight. It was obvious that the machine used to fasten the grommets was not adjusted for the grommets that are not at the corners, where the plastic is thicker. Bad design and workmanship. This makes the grommets almost useless.
The label says the grommets are "rustproof" but be assured they are not stainless steel,more likely a thin plating on base steel. A magnet grips them very firmly when presented.
This is not a cheap price for this size. You can do much better.
Once again, I had photos to post, but this web site will not allow more than one photo.

This is a good quality regular blue tarp, useful for everything from camping to home improvement to emergency use and even good for professionals and contractors. So far mine is being used for a painting project to keep a driveway clean from drips and spills. A good simple item that hasn't changed in decades because of its usefulness. For light duty you should be pretty happy with this tarp.

Had ordered a 40' X 60' but was sent the 9 ' X 12'. Apparently there was an issue with the mfg. Functional, but not large enough for my project.
