Over here at LYNX Hooks, we’re all about playing hard, but staying secure, and staying safe. That’s why this article on Bungee Cords from Vision Source, specialists in vision care products optometric services, was especially disturbing. Bungee Cords pose an incredible risk to your eyesightShould the cord snap or fly loose, “the hook, the cord, and/or the fastener come straight at your eye at up to 200 miles an hour.” You can imagine how damaging such trauma could be to your sensitive eyes. Vision Source doesn’t have to imagine; they deal with this type of injury regularly.

The result: risk factors most people don’t really see or believe, because bungee cords are so familiar.
