You’re in luck if you’re an avid bicycle rider and happen to always be in the need of bungee cords (I know I am). Use IT Clips to transform your old, punctured inner tubes into incredibly useful tie down straps. A fine example of upcycling done right.
“The IT (Inner Tube) Clips and IT Hooks allow you to reuse your old bicycle inner tubes as tie downs. This version fits mountain bike inner tubes from 1.5 in – 2.5 in. wide. As inner tubes deteriorate and break down, the IT Clips and IT Hooks allow them to be reused; it’s a great way to keep old inner tubes out of landfills. Cut your old inner tube and thread it through the clips as you would a strap through a buckle and latch the clips together; you determine the size you need.”
If these really catch on I can forsee entire bins of donated used bike tubes at bike shops and various establishments ready to be turned into these straps.
