Sometimes spelled bungie cord, bunge cord, bungi cord, or bungy cord, versatile rubber bungee cords are one of the most useful pieces of equipment you can have on hand. Bungees combine a rubber cord core inside, surrounded by a polyurethane jacket, with hooks on each end. A bungee cord is measured from the ends of the hooks.
We sell a variety of sizes and lengths of bungeecord, from 12" to 48" length. All are tough and durable, with continuous strands of rubber forming the core. A polypropylene fabric jacket resists abrasion and UV rays, and stands up to harsh weather condition. Wire bungee hooks have PVC coating to prevent scratching. We also sell replacement bungee hooks.
The simple design combining stretch, strength and attachment points is what makes them extremely versatile:
-Tie down nearly any type of cargo to a trailer, truck, rooftop car carrier, RV, etc. Can also be used as part of a motorcycle tie downs system.
-Attach tarp over cargo.
-Secure specialized gear like tool boxes, camping supplies, sports equipment, etc. to work vehicles, campers, boats, etc.
-Bundle items together such as lumber, kindling, tent poles, sports equipment, etc. to make them easier to store or carry.
-Secure tools or sports equipment to the wall of a shop, garage or shed.
-The action of the stretch cords are great for keeping lids on cans and boxes.
-Hold doors or gates open.
-Bundle cords, chains, etc. together for easy carrying or storage.
*WARNING: Use extreme caution when stretching cord over a cord. Keep face and other body parts away from the cord’s rebound path.
Bungee balls are a variation of bungee cords, but designed with balls on the elastic bungee length to easily loop and secure into place.

Other tie down options:
In addition to our black bungee cord straps, we also carry several other options for tie-down uses:
Tarp straps are designed with rubber and wire S-hooks, making them ideal for tying down cargo on trailers, trucks, campers, etc. We carry rubber tarp straps made from both natural rubber as well as EPDM (ethylene propylene diene monomer - M-class) rubber. A natural rubber is best for cooler, northern climates because they will not become crack, tear, or become brittle in freezing temperatures. EPDM rubber tarp straps are an excellent choice for hot climates and extended UV exposure since they resist degrading from the sun’s rays.
Shock cord: Often called bungee rope or bulk bungee cord, shock cord is similar to bungee cords without the end hooks. The elastic strap combines a multi-strand rubber core with a marine-grade polyester cover for a consistent stretch (its stretch factor is about 100-125% under full load). Because it’s considered “marine grade,” it’s excellent for water-based uses. Shock cords is economical because it can be made into a custom-length tie down by adding PVC-coated bungee cord hooks.
Rubber rope:Rubber rope is another good choice if you need a tie-down length that isn’t readily available. Just combine a length of rubber rope and a rubber rope hook to create a custom-length rubber strap for your needs.
