Replaces the usual tail strap. The elasticized PVC covered cord is easier to clean and more flexible, taking the pressure off fittings and straps.
"They stay cleaner!"
I've replaced the standard flat web nylon straps on my Horseware blankets with these bungee tail cords. It stays cleaner than the flat straps and the hardware so far is tough and holding strong after several months of use. Just a quick rinse/wipe off and it's good to go if it does get manure on it.
