BOB Yak Trailer: New New Grenade Pin Straps

Somehow, I thought those neoprene O-rings that replaced the grenade pin straps on my BOB Yak trailer would last more than one season, but they’ve already rotted out. A bit of rummaging produced a hank of rubber gasket intended to secure window screen in its aluminum frame, so it’s presumably better suited to an outdoor life than O-rings; it comes without provenance, so I have no idea what it’s made of.

A few snips, a handful of cable ties, and it’s all good again:

But I’m not expecting a decade out of these straps, that’s fer shure…
