Four Way Rubber Bands…

BandsThese are pretty clever to make or buy – “4 way rubber bands…a great new way to hold boxes or books or large stacks of paper together. (Sample shown above holding a Nuclear War box together). If your game box is starting to fall apart, or if it is so stuffed with supplements things start to slip out, or if you just want to organize your books, this is for you. Package of 6 for $5. You can order small (4″), regular (8″) and large (10″).” [via] Link.

  1. Brodart (a great source of library consumables) also sells these four way rubber bands. They nicely hold together a book when you are replacing a spine and gluing it back together.

  4. $5 for something you can make with a plain old rubber band? Just take a large rubber band, place it over the box in one direction, then twist it 270 degrees, and stretch over the other direction. I use this all the time for card games.

  5. I actually use a different method to secure card decks, boxes, and the like. I take a rubber band and place it across one corner, wrap it underneath and bring it across the opposing corner. This uses two opposing corners to hold the top, and the other two opposing corners to hold the bottom. In addition, each side of the item is held by a single strand. I use this method as opposed to the twist method proposed by berdandy, because it allows the rubber band to be used with less stretch, and therefore less chance of failure.
