Since 2000, we have had several customers call in with tubing that broke in the stretchy band. If it’s under a year, we replace it at no cost to you. Given the nature of latex rubber , it does age and break down and some customers also choose to switch over to our latex free version for allergy reasons.
Replacing the tubing is simple, although a great work out! We are offering all sizes in the latex and latex free version. The give or stretch of latex free tubing is a little different than the regular tubing and is also thinner. Bear Paw Creek recommends using the latex version over the latex free, as the latex free doesn’t hold up as well and doesn’t have as much bounce/give.
