You don't need to speak Spanish to follow this chap's explanation on tying a muzzle bungie:

I wonder if an angling store, auto-parts/motorcycle shop, Home-brew store or pharmacist/Boots might have something suitable? A good hardware store should carry something suitable -- not sure if we have any really good hardware stores left in the UK though (B&Q? There are some amazing hardware stores in the US - even the small ones seem to carry a much, much wider selection of products than the super-stores in the UK, & of course their prices are usually much better too). Chandlers? Anything suitable used with aquariums?

I used to have a motorbike with fuel pipes and carburettor overflows of black rubber of similar diameter to muzzle bungees. Something like silicone tubing might work too. Saw box loads of the stuff in a medical supply store inside a US hospital - probably harder to find and more expensive in the UK.

I still dont know exactly what you want & I did offer to send you some at P&P cost only!!
However if you want to but from Ebay there seems to be plenty selling elasticated cord or bungee - [ame=http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/3mm-Strong-Elastic-Shock-Cord-bungee-x-10-meters-BN_W0QQitemZ120476981242QQcmdZViewItem?rvr_id=&rvr_id=&cguid=25012e8b11e0a0aad222d402ffc47a63]3mm Strong Elastic Shock Cord bungee x 10 meters BN on eBay (end time 03-Nov-09 22:07:29 GMT)[/ame]

Hi Foxfish, I think they want elastic (e.g. rubber/silicone) tubing of some kind, so that the strong main cord can be hidden inside, like the RA & beuchat bungees...like these on forum member MCerieiro's new on-line website: http://www.blue-factory.net/shopping/category.php?id_category=9
