Make Your Own Bungee Cord
What you'll need
- 2 bungee hooks
- We are using a 1/4" metal bungee cord hook
- Any length of nylon shock cord
- We are using 1/4" Imperial Red Shock Cord
Once you have gathered your supplies, cut your shock cord with a scissor to the length you want you bungee cord to be. Add a couple extra inches to allow for tying knots in steps 3 and 4. Be sure to melt the nylon on the end(s) of your shock cord to keep it from unraveling.
Push one end of your cut piece of shock cord through the bungee hook.
Tie a Thumb Knot with the shock cord near the end to keep the cord from sliding through the bungee cord hook. Tying this knot replaces the need for hog rings and a pliers.
Tie another Thumb Knot with the shock cord below the bungee cord hook to keep the hook from sliding along the length of your cord.
One side of your bungee cord is now finished.
Repeat steps 2 through 4 to the other end of your shock cord.
You have now made your own bungee cord!
