3mm Elastic Shock Cord

3mm Elastic Shock Cord


Our prices are displayed without VAT (sales tax) because many of you benefit from an exemption from VAT for the disabled.

For customers in the UK, VAT will be added at checkout if you are not exempt. A small number of products are not exempt from VAT - see the description of each item.

Recipients of deliveries made outside the UK may have to pay import duty or formal customs entry. Any such charges are the responsibility of the recipient.

This 3mm elastic shock cord is available in black or white. It comes in 100m reels or lengths of 1m, 10m or 25m.

Please note, these lengths are pre-cut and will come in the lengths as ordered. For example, if you order 3 x 1m lengths, this will arrive as 3 x 1m lengths of elastic shock cord, not one long 3m length.

This elastic is used in the 1-Up Hair Ties from Active Hands. It is ideal for DIY or crafts.

This product does not qualify for VAT exemption. Therefore the total cost of this item for customers within the UK is £2 for 1m, £7 for 10m, £13 for 25m and £45 for 100m. VAT will be added at the checkout. Customers outside the UK will pay the price shown above.

Possible uses for Elastic Shock Cord include:

  • Jewellery making
  • Masks
  • Garments
  • Bags
  • Hats
  • Craft projects
  • Camping – for example, replacing the elastic in tent poles
  • Securing items – the Active Hands team use this to hold together exhibition kit!

Not satisfied with black or white? We may also be able to source alternative colours, in large quantities only. Please get in touch with our helpful team to enquire.

Safety: These materials are excellent tools for your DIY solutions. Some of these materials may be commonly used in safety equipment. However, please remember that safety equipment must be subject to rigorous testing and strict regulations. We do not recommend making safety items yourself.
