Step 2: Take Apart Bungee Cord
If I had bought bare cord, I would not have needed to perform this step.
I needed bare bungee cord, so I had to remove the metal hooks and metal rings that held the cord together.
I slid the metal hooks down to expose the metal rings that hold the cord together. I broke the rings by squeezing it in vice back and forth until it broke. The hooks can then be removed easily.
