    Does Anybody Have A Shock Cord Tool I Could Rent or Borrow?

    My IA needs to replace my shock cords and doesn"t have the tool. I told him i would try to locate one for him. Im a couple hours by car south of Chicago and 2 hours north of Indy Ideally I would like to locate one within a couple hours drive of here. I would promptly return it as soon as he was done with the tool.

    Wouldnt it be easier to loop one side over first and just hook the other side strait to the hoist, it will settle evenly.

    It will try to turn sideways doing that. Even pull is easier

    I took 2 1280HD off and reinstalled them using 2 ratchet straps. Horizontal between 2 post in my pole barn. Worked great
    Instead of rope I used a loop made from a ratchet strap, flat is easier to fish between the tight bungees

    That’s the method I’ve used, works well, just need to respect the amount of energy building up in the bungees when you start pulling on them.

    I tried that last month. I got it done, but it was difficult, and seemed dangerous.
    So I made a new piece to adapt the Hydrasorbs to my Chevy bumper jack. Still deadly, but safer and easier by a bunch!
    Bungee Buddy looks ok - the U tube is interminable, but you can fast-forward to the important parts.

    I borrowed a Bungee Buddy from a friend - worked very well. I made a special extra-deep deepwell socket so could use a rattle wrench (impact wrench to you non-rednecks).

    You can send your hydrasorbs to Univair and let them put the bungees on. They’ll also check the biscuit seals too.

    This simple tool fits in tool post on a lathe. Make sure tool matches ear on strut. Use carriage to stretch bungee, and pop it over ear with screwdriver. Very safe. You are stretching only one side, but the bungee will even itself out.
