bungee crimping staples & shock cord crimping tool

Would anyone have both the staples and the crimping tool? If so, please PM your price to use to crimp one end. I've found both for sale online, but they're a little expensive for current needs, and also wouldn't arrive in time. Using a knot instead doesn't feel secure enough, and the thickness of the cord would reduce the hooking space.

I'd imagine you could take coat-hanger wire, wrap it once around the doubled-over bungee cord end, cut it to length, and tightly crimp it with a pair of slip-jaw pliers.

You need hog ring pliers. Find an unholstery shop wherever "." is and see if they'll do it for you

Use those a lot on crab and shrimp pots. Stainless. A pair of channel-locks works fine.
Sporting goods or dedicated fishing shop.
Sportsmans Warehouse in Silverdale has them.
Over in the cooking section rather than fishing though.
Use them for elk sausage casing too.

Thanks for the alternative suggestions, everyone. By chance when looking for something else I came across these which may work instead. The problem was that I need to thread the cord through something long and narrow that the hook wouldn't fit through without being cut off and reattached, but these buckle clasps should be small enough to work.

ROK straps are the best. 1" wide work perfect for large packs. I use a clip to secure the ends. Wouldn't want those to get caught in a chain or wheel.

I agree that Rok Straps are great, but they aren't cheap. IIRC, I redid a bungee cord knot with zip ties. Cinch the tie up tight, clip it short, and make sure that the clip part nestles into the bungee cord loop before you pull it into the hook.
