I've been trying out the metal clamps sold for attaching EMT to a wall. They clip on to 
the tubing, and have either one or two flanges projecting from them. They are about a 
nickel apiece if you buy them by the box. The bad news is they do tend to tear the fabric 
where it slips under the clamp. I've been clipping only to the bottom of the hoop, where a 
small tear isn't so problematic. The good news is they do a great job of keeping the 
fabric taught and in place, even in big winds. They are far superior to my usual milk jugs 
with rocks in this regard. They are very easy to put on and take off, and they are 
small--small enough you can pop a whole row's worth in your pocket. Can't say that about 
my milk jugs.
