Simple question: where can you buy some suspension material? Perhaps some creative suggestions about daily products, which can be used.

Live in Denmark so difficult to find online retailers selling rubber bands for suspending HD's.

Thanks in advance.

If you read the original article in spcr, you'd know that clothing elastic from sewing shops is the best cheap source. I get the stuff for like maybe $1 a meter. Many diameters to choose from.

I'm not sure how it translates to $, but I get it at €0,25 a meter. I went to the shop (not knowing how much it cost) and said I wanted €2 of the thing. The old man there just started unwinding meter after meter xP When I realized what was going on I told him to stop... and came home with 6 meters of clothing elastic :P

I use black shock cord, either 3mm or 4mm - like this.
Slightly more attractive than knicker elastic :shock: if you've got a windowed case. it fits nicely through the holes normally used to screw in the DVD drives etc.
Available from climbing/camping/outdoor shops and e-bay and probably many more places too.
:lol:
