39957641-8ZgrB.jpgUmmm, not really sure what you were expecting. It's dark and raining outside, but hey, here is a picture of my bin. You can see a bit of green bungee cord.
As I wrote above, it holds a big wheelie bin bag to my bin. I'm sure you could have imagined what it looked like!

Ummm, enjoy I guess.

Watch out for the plastic police . Theyll be up in arms screaming about …Watch out for the plastic police . Theyll be up in arms screaming about your use of a plastic bag in a wheelie bin.


Therein lies the usefulness of bungee cords, they hold the bag in the bin, when emptied the stuff in the bag in the bin tips out, but the bag stays. After a few months the bag does get too grotty to keep and is replaced, but only a few bags are needed per year.

Exhibit A : Two small holes near top of black bag.

Exhibit B : General condition, it's a bag in a bin! For, well puttin' rubbish in!🤪😝

I thank everyone for your genuine concern over the new internet sensation that appears to be my wheelie bin. 🤪🤪

Bought bungees from Screwfix when last on offer. Holds wheelie bin bags lovely round top of bin. Another purchase I didn't know I needed, courtesy of HUKD.

I googled bin fetish but nothing came up. I guess it's not a thing.
Also great for keeping the bin lids down in this windy weather!
Heat, thanks!
My local Tesco has done this with the bin I think they need these....

It is now
Tip: If you are moving home and hiring a Luton truck to transport furniture, etc, these are invaluable for holding stuff to the rails inside and against each other so itdoesn’t move around.
Great, I needed something to strap the kids to the roof rack with when they are arguing in the car

Believe this! I didn’t know this was an issue until my cousin recently got hit in the eye by a loose bungee cord and lost most of his sight in that eye. Literally a life changing injury for a graphic designer

These are deadly, and should not be underestimated on what damage they can cause.
Go buy some rope or a ratchet tie down.
I'm not sure about EasyJets new business venture...

Hi, thanks for the pic
Could you describe in a bit more detail how "tight" the chords hold on to the bin bag? Is there ever any ... how shall we say ... "slippage"? That bin sure looks like its had some "wear and tear".
Thanks again for taking the pic whilst it was "dark and raining outside". How did you feel when you took the picture? Were you somewhat afraid at the time (coz it was dark)? Lastly did you get rained on to the point of getting wet clothes?
Hope you can answer as I think it would help many of us ... appreciate all of this.

Hmm surely you'd use ratchet straps for that. Wouldn't trust bungee cords.
Cracking deal was looking for some at a decent price

We used about 20 bungee chords with no problems whatsoever. We could have used ratchet straps (I own a few) but the upside of the chords is their flexibility/stretch-ability. You can quickly stretch them around and hook them onto things. I suspect straps would have achieved the same thing, but taken longer. It’s probably the ‘more than one way to skin a cat‘ scenario. But at this price they’ll also be a lot cheaper than the straps.

Sorry, we finished moved house about a year ago and the whole process (with rented accommodation in between) took 18 months. So overall we hired a Luton van 4 times to move furniture into long term storage plus in/out of temporary rented accommodation. Thus we used the bungee chords to good effect on all those occasions, but never took any photos I’m afraid.

What is useful is to secure some big items (eg upright fridge freezer) to the tie rails on the van walls and then attach other chords to the chords already attached to these items. A bit like making a big spiders web, but not as uniform. With some odd shaped items, eg tall light stands, you wrap the chord around them once and then attach to something else.

As someone else mentioned, you could do this with ratchet straps and/or ropes, but the flexibility of bungee ropes across a bulk of stacked/misshapen items, is their real advantage. And at £5 even if you only use them to complement the ropes/ratchets, it’s a no brainier

Forgot to say, we also brought a 8’x5 ft trailer off of eBay to buy and collect some large furniture items (sofa, divan, wardrobe, chest of drawers...to name a few) and again the bungee chords were invaluable. I recommend the trailer type we bought, if you do want to do that, it was amazingly versatile but still quite light to pull on a car. Fortunately I do have a photo of our trailer39966321-ZTXZs.jpg
Thanks op now ordered
