I got tired of looking at the saggy map pockets already so i found a cheap and easy way to fix them...

this is what we started with
Posted Image

the worn out factory elastic that has been there for the last 27 years
Posted Image

first step was to cut it
Posted Image

taped new elastic to it.
i found that 3/4" is too big and walmart didnt have 1/2" in black
Posted Image

used the old elastic to pull the new elastic into place
Posted Image

here is the old elastic after i pulled it out
Posted Image

i used a small binder clip just to hold the 2 ends together for the next step
Posted Image

stapled it 4 times.... i crossed my staples from opposite sides even though the factory only used 3 staples from the same side
Posted Image

here is the result, i pulled the binder clip off
Posted Image

i pulled it open and you can barely see the white elastic in there, the black was much more noticeable
Posted Image

here is the tan one all finished up
Posted Image

the result on the black one i used for practice ( first pic for comparison)
