Like duct tape, bungee cords have been making life easier for ages, but the time seemed right to improve on the original design.
Knotbone adjustable bungees can be lengthened or shortened, use better materials and have carabiner clips that are safer than open hooks. They also stay put when they’re locked on to each other or to a designated anchor point. Retail price is $9.99. Nite Ize Inc., Boulder, Colo., (800) 678-6483. www.niteize.com
