Thanks Lachlan!

I'm such a Neanderthal that I have no idea what a "hog clamp" is or how it would be used to secure the bungee cord! I've tried the o-rings, #30 rubber bands and the J-3 springs and each have failed. Springs work ok, do long as you grease 100% of landings.

Hope to get the bungee solution sorted.

Cheers

Instead of hooks these are made with rings. I had to wrap them a few times to get the tension right.

If you're happy, and you know it, clamp your hams! (sing it with me)

Hog RINGS, not clamps. Google is indeed your friend. Send me your address and I'll mail you some bungees for the Super Cub.
