Shade and Cool System for Pumpkin: Clamp Hold-Down

On each side of the pumpkin (about mid-way on the sheet, clamps are placed to hold the white sheet to the mill fabric. This provides a fixed point to help limit the movement of the sheet which helps ensure directed air flow.

Having this fixed point also allows for the sheet to lift off the pumpkin but not go anywhere so the air flow goes around the pumpkin while still maintaining the shade effect.
