Aboard Barefoot Gal, we use shock cord for a number of different things. Most of our recent projects are pretty self-explanatory, so here’s a photo tour.
Retaining storage containers on shelves:
Here’s how we attached the shock cord to the wood (read how we make shock cord loops here):
Then I added a paper towel holder (note hooks for trash and recycling bags under the bottom shelf):
Retaining straps on book shelves (despite being on a catamaran, things will fall — particularly with the wakes of passing boats):
And space saving towel racks:
On our previous boat, Que Tal, we also made lots of shock cord retainer straps for storage bins, both inside large lockers and in a couple of places where they sat on shelves or the floor.
