Ditto on the caution for the use of bungee cords. I worked in eye health care, and remember guys who lost their vision because of blunt force trauma to the eye. Whap.....blind in one eye.
Seemingly innocent activities like securing a lid to a garbage can is a good way to have a mishap and lose vision.
This is not to say that bungees aren't useful in certain applications, but I use a lot of caution with regard to where I use them, and am careful when I use them.
