Re: Heavy duty black elastic bands

Not sure about where to find any around Zurich, but have you tried looking at home improvement stores like OBI?

I did find these on amazon.de ...

https://www.amazon.de/-/en/Elastic-R...234974&sr=8-13

Looks like you can get them by March 11th if you have Prime.

Re: Heavy duty black elastic bands

Hi Jodeen


Find your local vineyard. Go and visit, and buy a couple of bottles of the local wine.
And while you are there .... ask for some 'WunderGummi'


These are used in the 100's to tie the vines to the wood or metal posts.


Enjoy the wine !!!

I know. A mod doesn't know if she should worry or chuckle OP, who's the beginner? Are you ok? Can you check in with us later?

I wear strong head-bands:


They got these everywhere, Claires, soccer stores, ...

The first one escaped, elastic bands were probably not strong enough.

Re: Heavy duty black elastic bands

How heavy is the duty we are talking about here? One may consider elastic luggage belts suitable for a task, but for a naturally massive stuff some proper suspenders would be the best fit.

Cmon. You can't leave us just hanging like that.

So? What's the story?

It is Friday and no real Friday thread. And I am travelling and don't feel like research.
