Bungee cords are one of those ubiquitous pieces of boating gear that have use almost anywhere. But they have strength limitations and are quickly compromised in an outdoor environment. MiniShockles™ from Davis Instruments are different: they're bungee cords on steroids.
Standard bungee cords are made up of thin strands of rubber. Over time, individual threads break while plastic-coated hooks rust unseen. Failure of these devices is often unexpected and can be dangerous to people and property alike.
Stronger and safer, MiniShockles feature UV-resistant nylon webbing sewn over marine-grade elastomer. This combination absorbs sudden jolts to keep items secure without damage. Durable 316 stainless steel wire gate snap hooks on either end deliver a safe working load rating of 300 lbs. That's ten times the capacity of most bungee cords.
Davis Instruments MiniShockles are available in 12", 18" and 24" lengths. They cost $14.99, $15.99 and $16.99, respectively.
