Bungee cord is one of the most popular methods for securing tarpaulins in place. The shape of the cord offers excellent resistance to abrasion, providing a flexible yet durable fixing for your tarpaulin. The central core of the cord is composed of a solid natural rubber with UV protection, while the outer braiding is a high tenacity polypropylene, again with added UV protection.
Shock cord provides a quicker and easier way to secure and unfasten tarps, and in absorbing sudden shock upon the tarpaulin, its much kinder on eyelets than a rigid product like poly rope.

Protective eyewear is recommended when installing any elasticated product, uncontrolled release can cause injury. Do not use for personal restraint, lifting or towing. Check cord regularly for any signs of wear or damage especially when stretched more than 25% of unstretched length.
