The Nite Ize KnotBone Adjustable Bungees includes carabiner clips that secure the exact length of cord needed and keeps the load attached.
The innovative carabiner ends of our KnotBone Adjustable Bungee allow you to adjust and lock its cord length precisely for each individual job. It's a little bit evolution, a little bit intelligent design, and a whole lot handy.
At Nite Ize, we find it almost impossible to look at simple everyday tools without thinking of ways we could improve them. It drives the people around us a little crazy sometimes (okay, all the time), but the result is a line of products that have one important thing in common - they're a smarter and easier-to-use version of everything else out there.
With carabiner clips instead of open hooks at each end, it not only attaches to your anchor points, it locks there. Instead of elastic that loses its stretch over time, the KnotBone Bungee has a durable, high quality cord that threads through each end. Once you have it adjusted to the right length, secure it in place with a simple wrap-and-lock motion. We've even added small self-clipping plastic caps to the cord ends to keep them in place once you've got your load secured. No more pulling, stretching, and re-hooking to get the tension you want - job after individual job, the KnotBone Bungee stays right where you attach it, pulls securely to the exact length you need, and locks there.
Warning: Read product safety information and instructions prior to use. Safety precautions should be taken in the use of all stretch cord products. Inspect product before each use. Product with cut, frayed, or otherwise damaged cords should not be used. Product with damaged or deformed hooks should not be used. Do not use on sharp or abrasive surfaces. Clips should be attached to allow the clip gates to fully close - do not attach the clips by the tip, or in any other manner that would not allow the gates to fully close. Eye protection should be worn during the use of this product. Stretch cord carefully, keeping body parts out of the path of possible rebound. Do not pull cords directly toward or away from yourself or other individual. Do not stretch cord more than 50% of its original length. Overstretching cord can cause hook or cord failure resulting in uncontrolled release. Uncontrolled release can cause severe injury to unprotected body parts, particularly eyes. Keep out of reach of children. Not to be used for climbing. Manufacturer is not responsible for loss, injury, or damage due to improper use of product.

A complex series of locks and dams up and down the Ohio River enable interstate commerce, travel and recreation by maintaining a usable pathway for watercraft, but come with the inevitable byproducts of disrupting the river’s natural systems. To combat this, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers uses a complex monitoring and response technology designed to minimize the negative impacts of dredging on the river ecosystem. Steven Foster, a limnologist with the Corps Water Quality Team, works at the Robert C. Byrd Lock and Dam in Gallipolis Ferry, West Virginia. He said one key area he focuses on is the welfare of mussels in the river. River dredging can smother mussel beds, so Foster and the team of engineers monitor the beds to ensure their safety.Read More
While the scientific community has formed its consensus on how ice sheets are shrinking in and around Greenland, some researchers are tracking what happens to the meltwater as it drains into the ocean each summer. Their study, published in Nature Geoscience by an interdisciplinary team of biologists, oceanographers and hydrologists, used computer models to simulate the meltwater to see where currents take it and what effect it could have on the ocean. Renato Castelao, one of the researchers and an associate professor of marine science for the University of Georgia, said one of the biggest discoveries of the study was the surprising final destinations of the ice sheets as they melt into the ocean each summer.Read More
Thinking of hitting the ice with a SondeCAM underwater fishing camera? Due to its rugged design, you won't have to worry about it handling the harsh elements. However there are a few simple tricks to get the most out of a FishSens SondeCAM while ice fishing. You won't have to do anything to modify the SondeCAM itself, but you are going to have to bring a few extra things. Most importantly we are going to need a power source. Unless you are hauling your gear with a truck, you'll want something more portable than the battery you used in the boat. Pick up an inexpensive and maintenance-free 12-volt, 9-amp battery. It is going to provide plenty of power, but will be much lighter and take up less space.Read More
