What do you call the thing that lets you adjust the bungee cord on the front of rucksacks like http://www.outside.co.uk/images/large/Blue-Ice-Squirrel-20l-Pack-Blue-W17.jpg ? You also get them on those elasticated laces you see on running shoes. It is a small plastic thing that you slide the cord through, and I'm trying to find out where to buy them, but I've got no idea what they're called.

 

Thanks very much for any help anyone can give.

It's either a whotsit or a thingy depending on the radius of the falanges.

Toggle or cord lock.

"Plastic spring toggle" brings up a fair few similar things, though didn't see the identical one.

I think thingummy is equally correct.

Cord Locks

Pennine Outdoor have a good range of them, though as the previous poster said; which one you need will depend on the radius of the falanges (Those Spanish fascists get everywhere!)

I used to work for a reputable rucksack manufacturer.

The item that you’re referring to is correctly called a Minge.

It’s a nested scrotum carrier, used by the French to carry gala melons. The chord helps prevent marking the delicate outer rind.
