We received so many requests for these rubber bands that we decided to offer them separately from the Shuber Plates. The plates will hold forever, but the rubber bands will eventually deteriorate or break. With this package you can get replacement bands for your Shuber Plates.
You will get 5 replacement rubber bands. Each rubber band is custom made from a transparent synthetic rubber. They are 0.75" (~2cm) wide. Their flat length is 3.7" (~9 cm). They fit the Shuber Plates perfectly but have also many other uses.
I sometimes use these rubber bands without plates. It doesn't give you the same protection but it does keep decks and cards in order. These rubber bands, with or without Shuber Plates, also prevent a deck from sliding around on a table. This is very handy in trains, on ships and on airplanes.
