How Much Do Large Rubber Bands Stretch?

Big rubber bands
Large Rubber Band: 30″

Our extra large rubber bands for moving are measured flat, and will stretch to approximately twice their length. We sell the big rubber bands in four different sizes. All are sold in a package of 12.

The great thing about buying rubber bands for moving is that they’re handy even after you’re all in and settled. Use them to secure box lids closed, or keep drawers or doors closed on chests, tool boxes, etc. Take them along camping or hunting to bundle supplies or keep cooler tops secure.

How to Use Mover Bands

Elastic mover bands are a must-have accessory for moving. These giant rubber bands are perfect for securing drawers and doors closed on furniture during a move, and unlike tape they won’t leave a sticky residue. They’re also ideal for placing over a moving blanket or moving pad to keep the extra layer of protection in place. If your furniture is going into storage, they’re gentle and safe enough to leave on for an extended period of time.

While packing tape goes into the garbage after you’re all unpacked, these stretchy bands can be re-used after the move: use them to secure cardboard boxes closed in storage; keep around pet food cans and bags outdoors to keep unwanted critters out; keep lids on outside garbage cans; secure coolers closed when camping; bundle hiking supplies together for easier carrying…  the uses are many!

Our mover bands come in four sizes: Big (27″), Large (30″), Extra Large (36″) and Oversized (44″). Keep in mind that measurements are when laid flat before stretching- they stretch to over twice their length when in use.
