Variable length rubber band

Recommended Posts

I don't know if this has been posted somewhere else, but it's a new idea to me. I suspect there might be a few groans followed by "Why didn't I think of that?"

Those slide grips you use to close laundry bags, tighten parka hoods etc. can also be used with rubber bands. The slide grips can be found at Walmart, in the Camping Supplies area.


Open the slide by pressing the button, then slide the rubber band through.


The optional straw segment is used as a stand-off, to prevent the slide from contacting the part being glued.


You now control the tension on the rubber band...no more wrapping multiple times to get the desired tautness, and removal is a breeze.
