// Utility Knife
// 1.5 Liter plastic Bottle X3
// “Thera Band” 1mm - (Latex sports band)
// Lighter (optional)
// Hole Puncher (optional)
Step 1: Caps Manufacturing |

Step 3: Caps Manufacturing |
The desired result: 2 mm below the screw.
Make 3 caps.

Cut the band to a 310mm*50mm strip.
Then copy the markings according to the template with a Marker or a pen.
Step 5: Band Manufacturing |
Step 6: Band Manufacturing | (You Currently Have Two Options)
A- ‘Freestyle’ cutting in a circular motion around the mark
B- Fold the band in half (on the long side), and insert to half of the mark (+) below the Hole Puncher. If you choose this option, your holes will come out slightly oval, don't be alarmed it’s completely fine!
Step 7: Band Assembly |
Insert the cap screws through the designated holes.
To make sure this is the right hole, you can check on the drawing.

Notice that the caps are uniformly oriented (screw up), and that the band sits above the first helix.

Step 13: Final Assembly
Place the band on top of the tap with the screw facing up. Stretch in a rotary motion.
In the second wrap, lock the remaining holes on the band in the appropriate meetings with the cap heads.
Finally, assemble the caps and lock them in a rotary motion.
