    The Biplane Forum is a private community. Subscriptions are only $49.99/year or $6.99/month to gain access to this great community and unmatched source of information not found anywhere else on the web.

Request for ideas for bungee replacement

Hello all.
I have the Steen tool and the new shock cords and will probably tackle the job of changing out the bungees on my S1C next month.
I have already seen a few ideas on here, however I am looking for any or all suggestion or ideas on how you guys/gals secure the gear before cutting the cords.
I intend to have an engine hoist in place secured to the engine and mount as a safety measure but I was hoping to fabricate something for keeping the gear pulled together to bear the load.
Pictures please!
thanks in advanced.
