I looked at the Lowe's link and noticed in the spring's product specifications that it weighs 9 pounds.
Might work well if one end of it was fastened to the support pole or tree and other end to the rope. Nine pounds in mid-air = sag. :-)
Old time screen door spring would be good too.
I think the best idea proposed was to make 2 loops in the rope (my guess is about 3' apart) and put two 2' bungee cords between the 2 loops (put a tie wrap across each bungee hook to keep rope captured). Put one of these gizmoes in each dipole leg's rope and hoist it up.
After weather weakens the bungee and they stretch out to the loops, time to put in new bungees.
