If your tarp and pole set up sags a little bit in the middle, then the Galvanised Ridge Rail from Supa Peg is just what the doctor ordered.
Adding this ridge rail will increase the head height of your tarp set up, while also preventing it sagging in the middle which can be a problem if the weather turns. This ridge rail is made from hi-tensile steel and is galvanised which will add moisture protection from exposure to the outside elements over time.
It also has square nylon inserts which means that you can use it with short spigots and it will protect you from sharp edges. Improve your tarp set up by keeping it taught with the Galvanised Ridge Rail from Supa Peg.

I am needing a pole for the centre rail for my canvas tarp. It is 3.5 metres wide. Wondering if this will do the trick?

This Steel ridge rail is good for lengths between 420cm - 550cm, so its not going to work for you. Sounds like the Supa Peg Eye to Eye T-Nut Spreader Poles in the 365cm length will be a suitable alternative.

Whatâ€™s the max extension length this can be extended too?1 answer
I’m using a 7.5 x 5.5m tarp over my Blackwoof twin 300. I don’t use a ridge rail currently but am looking to sure things up a little. Because of the ‘T’ shape of my tent I can’t use a ridge support pole. Can you check how sturdy/how much flex this has at full extension? Thanks

The maximum extension is 580cm, but at this length, there is a lot of flex. It is a lot stronger at 550cm.

Can I swap out the nylon insert for a C clip?1 answer
My tent, Kodiak 10x14, already has a galvanised pole across its roof. I want to attach a 3.5m or longer spreader bar from the tent roof pole via C clip to a spigot to make a larger awning for my tent. I already tried combining the 3.65m eye to eye and 3.05m C clip poles into a single C clip to eye pole but it's a bit too short.

The Galvanised Steel Ridge Rails are square, so, unfortunately, you won't be able to replace the nylon inserts with C-Clips as these are designed to fit round poles.

Support Poles Required1 answer
If I want to span a 3.65m tarp width with one of these, would this be a sturdier option than a spreader pole, meaning I could then get away without a centre c-clip support pole?
Was thinking of 2 c-clip supported spreader poles on either end of a tarp set up, but one of these in the centre to remove the need for the centre c-clip support?

Reading this I was initially thinking 'yep, that'll work' but I've done a bit of reading and Supa Peg on their website do still recommend you should use a support pole. But it's just a recommendation and you're not planning on using the pole at its full extension, so you should be ok. I'd still suggest having a support pole on hand in case it rains and the tarp gets heavier, just in case.
