The biggest problem with bungee cords is their lack of adjustability!
Overstretching to clip the hook, can be dangerous as the bungee may snap or fire the hook into your face.
Similarly, too loose and everything falls apart.
There has to be a better solution to this! Something that retains the convenience of the bungee but without the dangers. Let's have a look at some of the bungee cords alternatives available on the market.
As we have seen, the biggest danger with the bungee cords are the metal hooks attached to the end. But there is another issue with bungee cords that can be dangerous.
