Bandits Rubber Bands with HooksBandits are rubber bands, with hooks. Yup, it's really that simple.
Top Customer Reviews
Is the item too small for the band? Wrap it around twice. Is the item to big for the band? Hook two bands together. Seriously, I love these little things.
While it is nice having the different colors, it would be handier if each size were a different color to make them easier to pick out of a drawer. It would also be nice if they had a bit more stretch to them.
This is one of those tools you don't know you need till you have it around and start grabbing it for this job or another. I picked my first set up at a local stationary store, and have picked up a second set here on Amazon.
I carry some in my day bag and keep some more in my travel kit. They're in semi-permanent use for a dozen applications around my home and office. Some of the maybe less-obvious ones:
- The wrist strap on my umbrella came loose, so I removed it and threaded a Bandit through to replace the strap. Not only does it do the job of replacing the wrist strap, the hook makes it easy to attach the umbrella to an easy-to-reach place on my bag or jacket when I'm out and about in the rain. When I need to stow it on a sunny day in a bag I need to carry with me, instead of trying to stuff it inside or having it dangle from the outside of the bag, I sit the end in the side mesh-pocket and use the Bandit to lash the other end so it stays firmly in place. And when I'm walking in the rain, I often attach my shopping bag or water bottle to the hook so I have a free hand even while holding the umbrella.
- I keep crutches around because of an on-again, off-again limp, and they were _always_ getting knocked over with a loud clatter no matter where I tried to stow them. I bound them together with a Bandit around the hand-holds, and now they stick together as a unit, which also makes them less likely to clatter to the ground.
- But even if you don't have crutches, you probably have brooms and mops, or a vacuum and attachments, or other things like that that tend to fall down when jostled, and lashing them together with Bandits keeps them stable and tidy.
- When I need to get my long hair out of the way for cooking or shaving or a shower, the smallest Bandit is much easier to use than a regular hair elastic—just wrap it around the ponytail and hook, no stretching and pulling the hair through multiple times. It's a little too weird-looking to use it all day when I want an up ponytail, but for these quick uses it's great.
- My "tech go-bag" has lots of cables and cords in it. You can coil and wrap these however you like, but they can still tangle in transit. There are lots of gizmos (some by Quirky as well) you can buy to deal with this, but there's no need for unitaskers if you have Bandits. Just use the "figure-eight wrap" (hold one end of the cord between thumb and middle finger, then make the "hook 'em horns" sign by extending the index and pinky fingers, then wrap the rest of the cord around those two fingers in a figure-eight patterns) and then stay it with a small Bandit. You can even do this with multiple cords at once with a single Bandit—they won't tangle together.
- I have a "travel charging kit" (see LifeHacker at [...] for a DIY example) with a USB hub, charging battery, and several connectors and cables. Bandits are perfect for lashing the bits (the hub, the power supply brick) and the cords to a case with elastic stays inside, such as the Skooba Cable Stable (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0058S883K/ref=wms_ohs_product?ie=UTF8&psc=1) . Everything stays perfectly in place whether I'm on the go or the case is unzipped and open for charging, so no need to repack it, ever.
- I've replaced many small equipment carabiners with Bandits; when the item isn't too heavy, the Bandit is less bulky and heavy.
- I keep an assortment in my toolbox; you can handle many "I need somebody to hold this for me" situations by yourself with creative use of Bandits. (Tip: get a snake light, and then if you can affix _any part_ of the light to something solid, you can point the light to where it's needed.)
As you use them, you'll just keep finding more and more ways they come in handy. Really, really recommended.
I use two every day to hold my iPad on the elliptical machine while I work out. I actually bought this second package of them, because for the past six months, one of the straps I use daily looks as if it's about to break, and so I wanted a spare when that happens. But it just keeps going, and going, and going. So I haven't used any of my new second set.
