I am tired of paying West Marine prices for rubber mooring line snubbers (shock absorbers) that don't work well nor last long, and have heard that some old salts use bicycle inner tubes as shock absorbers for your rig hooks.

I'm looking at an inner tube and a length of rope that I will put on my rig hook but I'm not sure if I should cut it to a certain length, knot my line around the ends, or what! Can anyone elaborate on the "best" way for this DIY project?

Fold tube in half, with one end of you rope, tie two half hitches on each end, allowing reasonable amount of line sag from tube end to tube end and attach that short end of rope to your rig hook. I use that same method on my 7.5 ft. SS Cajun Anchor when fishing Central. John Castelluccio, Jr.
