Frequently asked questions about bungee cords and bungee cord accessories

How do I use bungee cords?

Bungee cords are incredibly flexible and versatile, which means they can be used in a wide variety of ways to secure almost any type of cargo. For example, you can loop a bungee cord around cargo and tie it together to keep it secure, or you can attach hooks to your bungee cords to tie them to a bundle you can carry. Thanks to the wide variety of bungee cord accessories and assemblies you can purchase, including bungee hooks, bungee tape, bungee toggle ties, bungee elastics and shock cord steel rings, these shock cords can help you bundle items together, carry them, secure them in a vehicle, hang them up and much more.

What are the benefits of bungee cords?

Bungee cords are far more elastic and flexible than other types of ropes and cords, and are capable of 100% elongation. As a result, bungee cords are the ideal tool for cargo control because they can easily absorb shock and movement. This elasticity can also make bungee cords a great exercise tool. Stretchy bungee bands create resistance to train your muscles, and they also ease some of the effort needed for exercises like push-ups to help your workouts.

Do bungee cords ever snap?

Bungee cords are capable of 100% elongation, making it very unlikely that they’ll snap. Although this isn’t impossible, your bungee cords should be completely fine if you don’t overload them. If in doubt, use more cords or a longer cord to secure your cargo. 

How long should a bungee cord last?

Your bungee cords should work well for a few years, but they will eventually start to stretch or fray. If you notice these signs of deterioration, it’s important to replace your bungee cords rather than continuing to use them, as they could eventually snap under pressure.

Can bungee cords get wet?

Bungee cords are totally waterproof, so you can safely get them wet or use them outdoors. Both the synthetic outer and natural rubber core won’t get water-damaged. You can even submerge your bungee cords if you need to.
