Thats a good idea and would be even better if you welded each link together so you dont get all the noise of them bouncing around.

I used some 1" nylon webbing. Folded it over at the ends and used the soldering iron to "drill" a hole and then mounted them using the stock hardware. Year and a half so far no problems.

Black rubber bungee cord cut to size. Used the original screws and end covers. Looks good and is functional..

Good idea! Nicely done.

A bit off topic. But..

If the metal inside your pull broke but the plastic is ok, go to home depot or lowes whatever, the metal banding they use to band together the stacks of lumber is exactly the same size. Grab a section, cut it and slide it in, redrill 2 holes and you're back to stock.
