Are Bungee Cords UV-Resistant?

How Do You Connect Bungee Cords?
Bungee cords are not easy to connect together with simple knots because they are slippery due to rubber, and when they stretch, the knots can loosen easily.

How Do Adjustable Bungee Cords Work?
Adjustable bungee cords come for both heavy-duty and light-duty purposes.

How Do You Keep A Bungee Cord From Fraying?
Fraying is the unravelling of a bungee cord, and it increases at a fast rate leaving your bungee cord useless.

You can use heat to stop the fraying of your bungee cord quickly. Cut the cord a bit and use fire from a lighter or burner to fix the fraying end.
Also, save your bungee cord from unnecessary moisture and sun rays to lessen the weakening of the cord overtime to delay fraying from happening as long as possible.
Fraying mostly happens in non-sleeve, and adjustable cords where ends are open are prone to damage.
Does The Length Of A Bungee Cord Include The Hooks?
Yes, all bungee cord’s total lengths are measured from the ends of the hooks.
