Or just attach it to your post, that's a lot easier.

So, inside the bag within the bag, you'll find the dreaded "knotted bungee", a rather expensive little bugger ($15-16 USD) that holds the Cabrinha CL quick release in place. I've always thought Cabrinha could come up with a better idea. If the bungee loses elasticity or breaks, the quick release can trigger too easily (e.g., during a crash on the water).

^ No. it says x2. So they're a totally reasonable $8. :roll:


Or, about 25 cents at your local fabric, sailing, or hardware store.

Plus the bungy inside, the tape on the ends, sewing machine rental, and your time :D I'd happily pay $8 for someone else to do it :thumb:
