Shock cord hooks.

These little gems turn 1/4" shock cord into quickly adjustable, any length bungees without any knots. I buy both 1/4" shock cord and the "crab pot hooks" at a marine store that serves commercial fishermen. I shared these in a post on tarping the boat. The hook fits a grommet. The shock cord fits into a compression slot. Stretching the shock cord allows it to "snap" into the slot.

A 50 pc. bag is about $10.00. They last forever.
