View Full Version : Bungee Cord Installation Tool

Photos show my way to do cords safely, evenly and with out rolling them. Years ago I modified my shop press with a double acting hydraulic cylinder like you would find on a wood splitter to use for broaching. Got to thinking about it and it will pull just as well as push so I bolted the table to the uprights and bolted a plate with a 7/8 hole to the table. My lift is self explanatory in the pictures. Put the hydro thru the plate and pin it. Catch the cord with the hooks and spread them with the threaded rod. Stretch the cords above the lugs. Tighten the threaded rod to position the cords over the lugs and gently lower the cord on to the hydro. The one in the picture is a PA18 hydro with double 1280HDs on large ears. No problem. There are many ways to do it, this is mine. Any body want them done I'll do em for $5 a cord plus UPS back to you.

Cool looking rig. That's the deal of the century for changing bungees. If you haven't already, you need to post that over at the supercub site too. You may have more buisness than you know what to do with. Im out of the bungee business for now, presently converting my tripacer with theTrimmer gear mod that uses Maule shock struts. I'm really impressed with your set up though.

Frank, Nice set-up. I like the hooks you used to hold the bungees. I also made a tool that used hydraulics and after using it decided to modify it to incorporate hooks next time. There was a lot of friction getting the bungees off those tubes and on to the cabane. The hooks would help with that.

I've attached photos of us putting bungees on my Vagabond struts.

That's my IA Gary in the photo.

As you can see, my tool is way overbuilt. You could probably pick up the corner of the hangar with it. John W had me so skittish about how scary this job was, I really took every precaution. No one got hurt, so Thanks John.

My tool was similar but was not happy with rolling the cord and one side at a time was scary. This makes a nice even stretch and a gentle unrolled placement. Note the covering on the finished shot how straight the wrap is. The hooks were made out of 5/16 grade 8 bolts tried 1/4 first but they bent. There is a lot of force here.

Hey Captbill1956 would you mind starting a new thread and post some pics and info of the Trimmer gear mod, when I get to my fuelage here with my project I am going to incorporate this mod om my airplane and any info or problems yoou run into would be helpful.

Here is "Our Version" of the Sturat "Bungie Buddy", that I built up one size bigger that their's. This unit will fit bungies onto Short wing hydro Sorbes up to the Pawnee version, with Three 1280HD's. The units shown in the photos we for a "Experimental" Streached Pacer with slotted cub wings & 540 with C/S prop. He needed the extra cords to hold the extra weight.

Frank, Your way does the job better in the context of not twisting or rolling the cords. I get even stretch, but looking at the photos, I did get some twist!

The Trimmer Gear STC looks like the "way to go". How much does the Maul Shock Struts cost compaired to our Hydro Sorbes??

Enjoy the day,

I don't know if the rolling makes any difference in the life of the cord. My set up used to be similar but I didn't like rolling one side at a time and the snap when they drop in so I came up with the hook setup and it works real well. I'm sure it could be copied in other manual setups like yours. Wouldn't even charge for my "intellectual property copyright" Oops that is in another thread.

Hi Frank ! I would be interested to have you do this for my Piper Colt hydrasorbs. Can you e-mail me your business address and I will get these coming up to you soon as we are ready to remove from aircraft. I will cut the old cord off as we need to clean up and repaint the hydrasorbs.
This appears to be a brilliant idea that you came up with ! Thanks in advance ........................... Mark Casillas, Memphis,TN 901-413-8692

Am I correct in assuming that the OSHA Approved safety cage made out of 1/2" steel bars one inch apart has been removed for clarity of the pictures? (humor, boys)

What, pray-do-tell, is the shot laden deadblow hammer for, in this operation? Killin' 'Laskan Skeeters while your stretchin' the bungees? Boy, that's for the Man Who Has Everything!

Frank Green
05-17-2010, 07:28 AM
Trouble with that one Steve is it still rolls the cord on. Notice the twist and you do one at a time pulling the pins. John I forget what the dead blow was there for but isn't used in the install. OSHA????? who are they? This is a second shift operation and we all know gov. types don't work second shifts.

Steve Pierce
05-17-2010, 08:13 PM
Saran wrap and an angle on the tube the bungee is held on should solve the rolling problem if it really is a problem. Put a set of bungees on Super Cub hydrosorbs today with my Bungee Master and I am tired of that goat rope.

Frank Green
05-18-2010, 06:50 AM
Not sure if the twist is a problem or not. Just makes sense if you can do it with out twisting why not. My hook method could easily be adapted to a frame and a threaded rod to pull it. The only thing different are the hook plates instead of lugs so you can lift the cords over the lugs and then gently set them on.

Just thought I would send these out again. My Bro Clyde designed and built this tool using a Ford Bronco jack. Works like a charm, little or no effort, and very safe. No Twist, no pop, no scapes, no scars.

He got the brains, I got the looks.

Thats got to be the simplest way to do it that I've ever seen.
But I wonder how even the bungys are from one side to the other?
I've been watching this thread closely becouse I'm needing to make one.
(getting tired of barowing) Looks like the simplest to make as well.

I like it. Uses hooks to get the cord over the ear, nice job.

Lownslow
05-19-2010, 02:20 PM
Initial stretch stretches the entire cord evenly, then they are just bent in half, pretty evenly I suppose. There's an old video on you tube of a guy installing them at Piper on Cubs back in the 50's. They just used leverage to bend them into position in a similar way, without the stretcher, and then snapped them off of the dogs. I think I posted that here on a similar forum, but I can't find it now. Once the cord is stretched as shown, it takes little to no effort to bend the sorb over to position for unlatching the cord off of the dogs. The tool is designed for the dogs to move down and beside the sorb for easy removal of the cords from each side. I can send more pics if neeeded.

The tool Piper used on hydrosorbs.

Frank Green
05-20-2010, 02:22 PM
Quite the spanner bar to roll them off the lugs one at a time. Hey John you think Piper got that one OSHA approved. If I were to build another one I'd do it like Lou's. Could be used at the airport with out taking them back to the shop.

I bought this tool on ebay and was wondering if anyone has ever used this type before? I'm familiar with the Bungee Buddy. That's what I used on my Colt from the piper club, but looking at pic of this one can't figure out how it would work. Thanks,

It's yer typical jackknife style bungee tool. The picture shows two parts - the handle and the frame. The handle isn't supposed to be attached to the frame.

Put frame horizontally in a strong vise
Attach one end of the hydrosorb to the frame using the bolt (where the handle is now), let hydrosorb hang down towards ground
Slip handle over the other end of the hydrosorb
Bungee gets looped over the round pipe part of frame and one ear of hydosorb
Use handle to bring hydrosorb through a 270 degree arc (like closing a jackknife), until the other ear of the hydrosorb fits into the round pipe part, stretching the bungee
Pry bungee off pipe onto ear.

At this point you'd be done. That's providing nothing slipped and the full wrath of a stretched bungee gets unleashed and tries to kill you quicker than you can say 'dammit'. That's why the bungee buddy was invented, these things are dangerous as heck. That said, I do use a homemade version of the same thing.

Thanks tyndall and frogdad! I appreciate the info. My left gear bungees are sagging a little and they are about three years old! All 1080's. I'm going to do a 1280hd and 1080 together like Steve suggested and maybe that will keep it from sagging.

Tony

Frogdad
02-27-2013, 04:18 PM
Tony,
I think if you do the 1080/1280 combination it is best to put the 1080 on first then the 1280. I seem to remember if the 1280 goes on first the 1080 tries to slide off past the ears. Maybe Steve Pierce can confirm if that is correct.

Yes, I remember installing Rex's 1280 first and then having to remove it. :icon_rolleyes:

Hey guys I just ordered new shock cords for my pacer and I dont know where to get the tool that you use to replace them? This will be my first time at replacing the bungees. There is a mechanic on the field who said he would help me do the swap so I can learn how to do it myself but he doesnt have the tool either. Any help? Im in NW Kansas by the way. Thanks in advance

That is the bungee tool for the Comanches' over center bungees. We have one for our Twin Comanche because they have to be replaced every 3 years per an AD. It is a totally different tool than the shock cord bungee tool needed for the Shortwings.

Forrest, I just watched the video and I gotta say, that is a great design! The only thing needed is a beefier table to mount it on!
Can you tell what kind of jack was used (Toyota truck?) Do you have any sketches or drawings you can post or email?
We have six Tri-Pacers in our group based at Hillsboro airport (and several more in the area) and need to own our own bungee tool.

You got it, dude! Nice job of reproducing the layout Clyde did. Your video shows exactly how easy, and SAFE it is. Just takes a few materials and some welding to facilitate the power of the screw jack. Thanks for the recognition to Clyde "the glide". I'll have to get him to post here.

Hi Glen,

I don't really know what model toyota the jack came from, it was in a pile of them at the junkyard, I just figured that one would work the best....It clearly said toyota on it though.
I don't have a drawing.....but if you pass along your email I can make a sketch, and add some comments and close-up photos for you to use.

Just let me know....

Thursday night we replaced the bungees on Curt's PA22, using the SWPC Bungee Buddy. Yes, it does make a helluva snap when the rings move from the tool to the ears of the hydrosorb, and yes, there is a bit of roll in the rings, but from "OK, let's get started" - then teaching a greenhorn how to lift the plane, remove the sorb, replace the rings, reinstall the sorb, then repeat for the other side - to "Well done, lets celebrate with beer and pizza!" we took all of two hours. That said, the $30 shipping - each way - has convinced us we need to build our own, and we really like the design Forrest has. With five flying Tri-Pacers in our group, and two more in restoration, we need our own tool for this.

kloudking, redbarron,

That would be much appreciated! I'm mainly interested in the distance between the hydrosorb mount point and the top of the "bungee stop" ... the part where the loose end of the cord is held (the round part on the end towards the left of the picture) as well as the width of the hydrosorb attach point. I know these are dimensions I could determine once I had the hydrosorbs out, but it would be nice to have them ahead of time in order to get the right size materials.

Chris,

Sorry I have not made it out to the hangar to take measurements but it looks like you are getting the info you will need. The Tietmeyer tool is probably superior to what I have.
One thing I would do differently would be to have some positive means to pop the bungie off of the tool on to the hudrosorb. I have been using a combination of screwdrivers and pry bars. It doesn't always work easily. Maybe a "U" shape plate under the bungie with a lever to raise it up might work better.

Well, after much mental planning, I finally pulled the trigger on building a tool to R&R my Tri-pacer shock cords.

56035604


It took me all day Saturday to fab about 90% of the tool and most of Sunday to finish the other 10%! All in all, it went very well, but I've never done any maintenance that was so kinetically violent! I had the bungee blow off the tool a couple of times, and I have a nice dent in my tool box to attest to the hazards of not keeping the strut under control while bringing it around the pivot. (BTW, I solved the "loose bungee" issue by ziptie-ing the bungee to the bar, then cut the tie when I brought the shock unit around. Used a long flat screwdriver to transfer the bungee off the pegs to the ear on the shock.)

If you look carefully at the first photo you'll notice the attach point bolt holes are not lined up correctly (they're 90 deg out), so that look of elation in the second photo was quickly replaced with a look of, "Oh crap!" However, the situation was soon remedied by clamping the ears of the piston rod end of the assembly in the vice and slowing turning the fixed end while my able assistant smacked the end cap around with a dead blow hammer.

Looks great! Glad you are wearing safety glasses! That's a great idea about using tie-wraps to keep the bungee secure.

Hi

A friend of mine, also owner of a Piper, told me that he once built a bungee replacement tool.
He had been given the plan of the tool by a friend but he lost the plan and gave the tool ...

So here is my question : does anyone has a plan for such a tool ?

25 years ago, when I first bought my Pacer, which is the one Mark Moyle is now making into a "silk purse", I built a bungee tool from a drawing that was either in the Short Wing publication or was in Sport Aviation.....memory tells me it was Sport Aviation, but that isn't exactly reliable any more. Anyway, I was running a machine shop at the time and it was quick fabrication. And it worked like a charm. I've used it all these years to replace bungees on my own Pacer, as well as for others in the area. Never thought much about it until I went through this thread. I realize now, the damned thing is dangerous! It takes some serious effort to lift the lever and bring the bungees over to where they can be pried off the spreader and onto the hydrosorb hook. And if it were to slip out of the vise, the injury could be serious. Thanks, Pacerfgoe for the sketch and photos. I've got a set to put on the project I am doing, and have the Wagabond project coming up, so will be building a new tool. I'm too damned old now to waste time trying to heal up!

Thank you so much for your tool !
This will be useful for our PA22 (probably not for the PA18 as this one has no hydrosorb).

I have a tool to put on Bungees with hydrosorbs. This tool was designed and built by Doug Stewart and it is very safe and easy to use.

It also works on the non-hydrosorb Cub gear.

Forrest sent me the drawing last year and one of my talented welding buddies fabricated one for our club of six Shortwings.
It works great and is very popular with our group. Seems there's always someone replacing bungees each year.
