I'm using 1.0mm stretch magic.

Its just very difficult to get a good grip on and the stretch factor is enormous!


I might go see if I can just find the bungee cord/clothing elastic in a store somewhere.

I've been trying to use Stretch Magic to suspend my hard disks, but damn, it is difficult! The stuff is just *way* too stretchy - as soon as I pop a hard drive on it, the cord just stretches and the hard disk ends up resting on the bottom of the drive tray (P182) How do you guys do it?
