Although this 14" bungee can stretch to 26", its real advantage is that it cinches tight with just a quick tug. With the carabiner hook anchored to any convenient tie-down point, you simply pull the cord through the body until taut. The cam mechanism locks the cord at the desired length, holding the tension until you release it.
The 1-3/4" hooks are made of strong glass-reinforced nylon with spring-loaded stainless-steel carabiner closures. The 1/8" diameter cord has a highly reflective material woven into it for visibility.
