Need replacement bearings - (small bungee cord bearing)

Are you able to buy a replacement for those small ring bearings that hold the bungee cord in place on top of the frame? I had one shear in half and the bearings fell out. I didn’t see an option to buy these alone on the website. Also have trouble trying to find something similar to size at the hardware store.

Let me see if I can find you a source. These guys had them: https://maslowsurplusparts.com/products/chain-tension-hardware-kit?variant=15496890351729 but it looks like they are sold out

I believe that these would be a good replacement if not identical to the originals:

Great thanks for the info. I did find that same size with Prime delivery by Thursday. :+1:
Should be back up and running before the weekend

Weren’t folks using clothesline pulleys from home depot to do the same thing?

I think so. They would certainly work well.

If you have access to a 3D Printer you can find lots of options on Thingiverse
