Well any will work for a while, but most "home depot" or "RV" parts places does not seem to last long. Since this is not a job you want to do often then I think it makes a lot of sense to do it once and do it right. Maine Sail's stuff is known to be a good and not that much more than the cheap stuff. So it does not really makes sense to use anything else. Plus you help support one of the best do it yourself and objective testing sites out there. (it is not like he is going to retire off of the stuff though)
