    Evil Bungee Cords

    Be careful of these seemingly simple and innocent looking devices...

    I went one round with one today and lost, but luckily only my pride (and temper) and not my eye.

    Ouch! Man, that was close.....

    Been there - done that before. I noticed the common rubber variety has changed over the years just like everything else. Luckily I have a pretty good supply of the older ones - just have to inspect them before using for cracks due to age.

    Yeah, it was close!
    No breakage-it just slipped while trying to hook it.

    Good thing there wasn't a Twist Lock Hook on the end of that bungie cord. You'd have been seeing Care Bears!

    Glad that you are ok.
