  • Bungee Cord

    Q:

    I'd like to put this on my SUP for the deck rigging. How much do I need, and what diameter? I have the NRS Mayra.

      A:

      I'm not familiar with the deck rigging; 3/16" seems appropriate.

      A:

      Jeannie, the 3/16" or 1/4" diameter will work well for your SUP board. If you are going with an "X" pattern rigging, 20' is enough bungee cord to rig your board.

  • Bungee Cord

    Q:

    How do I feed the bungee cord through my kayak spray skirt?
    Asked on 6/8/2015 by Diane from United States

      A:

      Diane, I assume there's a "tunnel" through the rim of the skirt that the original bungee was in. You can push something stiff, but flexible, through the tunnel, then tape the new bungee to it and pull it back through. Things to consider: plastic tubing, wire, "bicycle cable" type cable, etc. Good luck!

      A:

      My method is to tape to the end of the cord using duct tape a length of steel rigging stranded wire (sailboat stay wire) that is about 1/8” thick, since this is what I have scraps of in my pile of stuff (use the stiff stay wire, not the highly flexible stay wire). Then I run the stay wire through and use it to pull the bungee cord through.
      No stay wire? Well, you can work a small bit of wood through, and if you link strong skinny cord to the wood and then the cord to the bungee, you can slowly work the wood through, then pull the bungee through with the cord.
      You might be able to use a coat hanger if you first got the kinks out then taped it to the bungee.

      A:

      Use a drain snake or like object, tape the bungee to the end of the snake
      once it's been threaded through the skirt, pull back through and you're
      good.
      Be careful not to rip the skirt when feeding the snake, check the head to
      make sure the standard loop hasn't been broken.
      Good luck,

    Q:

    Do you sell or do you know where I can purchase purple bungee cords for my kayak? Thanks.

      A:

      No I don't sell it, and not sure why you'd think to ask me,
      but maybe I can help you out.
      McMaster-Carr, an industrial supply kind
      of outfit has it.
      They accept credit cards and usually deliver the next day.
      Here’s
      the relevant page:
      http://www.mcmaster.com/#stretch-cords/=q8o2o2
       
      Also, if you don’t want to have to order it, my local Ace
      hardware has some available by the foot, not a huge
      selection though.  Check
      with your local store, usually back
      with the rope and cord.
      Hope this helps,
              -Alex

      We carry only black, Anthony. Web search for "purple bungee cord roll" turned up some options.

  • Bungee Cord

    Q:

    What is the construction of the bungee cord? What is the core material? Is the core material coated with another material?
    Asked on 11/5/2012 by Murray from Russellville, AR.

    3 answers

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      The core is rubber. It is covered by fabric with a weave that allows it to stretch along with the rubber. It is quite durable.

    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      All bungee cord I have ever used is made up of many fine strands of rubber
      covered with a fabric, the individual strands of rubber are not coated. The
      rubber under the fabric cover looks much like stranded copper electrical
      wire that is covered with a vinyl plastic. The numerous strands make it more
      flexible.

      A:

      The core material is a white elastic. There is an outer sleeve of
      braided material which is probably polyester -- be sure you seal/melt the
      ends well or they will unravel a bit.

    Is there a thickness recommended for use on a sea kayak?

      A:

      It depends on preference, what your carrying usually thicker the better

      Answered on 9/5/2012 by Anonymous
    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      At 1,034 lbs. tensile strength, the 4-mm is plenty strong enough. Some kayakers use bungee cord, of which we carry three diameters.

    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      I'm sorry it took so long to get back to you about this question on bungee
      cord thickness. For deck lines as well as bungee cords I always try to use
      1/8", this is what came on my P&H kayaks and I just think it is more elegant
      than the thicker ones, on trips it always has been strong enough to hold
      anything I've placed under it but as a rule I try and keep the deck as
      uncluttered as possible for windage reasons.

          This bungee cord was used to replace the original that came with my sea kayak. The original had stretched and faded. This is quality cord that I think will last for years.
