12.0 BUNGEE CORDS - DO-IT-YOURSELF - DIY TIPS
No household is fully equipped without a full set of bungee cords. You know how useful rubber bands are. Bungee cords serve the same purpose only for much larger articles. They come in various lengths. Make sure you get a full selection.
Carry one set in your car and keep another in your home. If you ride a bicycle, wrap a couple under your seat.
Bungee cords should come with rubber tips so that they don't scratch your paint.
Here are some examples of how they can be used: When the wind kept blowing my double van doors shut as I was unloading, I bungee corded both doors open to the frame of the van. Bicycles riders can use them to secure packages on the back of their bikes. They are good for securing tarps.
If you need a longer bungee cord simply daisy-chain two or more together.
