Introduction: Ranger Bands (Rubber Bands on Steroids)

Ranger Bands (Rubber Bands on Steroids)
         These are basically really strong wide rubber bands that are nice for what ever you can think of. I use mine to help bundle some 550 cord that was previously tangled.

Step 1: Gather Materials

Materials-
- Inner tube (I recycled an old popped bicycle inner tube)
- Scissors (a knife would work too)
- Ruler (optional)
- Something to use it on (550 cord in my case)

Step 2: Cutting

All you need to do now is cut it to your desired length. 

There is a powder on the inside and i washed it out with warm water and soap.

Step 3: Apply to Chosen Use

Do what you wish with them. Have fun!

    These are the best things. I get web gear and pouches with elastic fabric "keeper" straps. I cut 'em off and replace with homemade ranger bands. Cheap, effective and intensely easy to make.

    I like recycling bicycle tubes for tie down straps and handlebar tape. I have found that soaking the rubber pieces overnight in a strong solution of Pine Sol and hot water, gets all the grease and chalk off of them.
