Hey MikeC,

I realise bungee cord is best, but Im just looking at possible alternatives that dont involve knotting and tying! :wink:

If there was a bungee o-ring then that would be perfick. Alas, have never seen one. :(

Had a visit to town. Couldnt find what I wanted. :( The o-rings that places had were too small and didnt seem that flexible. One thing else that might be usable, is tent bands like these Tent Pegging Bands . I know rubber bands werent recommended but I would think tent ones would be non-perishable?

Maybe a plain hair band would be ok too? Im just looking for something that you dont have to tie a knot in. Looks a bit unsig...

Quick question... Would using those rubber O-rings that hoovers (old ones) use be good to use? I used to have one on hand, but couldnt remember if it was too "hard".

Might try a local hardware or DIY store.
