I knot the elastic so there is two same lenght strands then pit thread the elastic then push the top loop through the connector then push loop over connector and pull tight.
Steve Ringer shows how he does it on the "www.Gofishing" web site and it the same way but he uses dacron connectors.
look there as it shows it better than I can explain.

Iv sorted it I think - knotted the double onto connector then knotted onto the bung aswell - it's still double so should do the same job??

Knot the conecter matey because if one side of the elastic should snap youve stil got 1 strand to play the fish on. Also if i was you id run it through a pulla bung rather than just a bung.

Steve Ringer knots his elastic then puts it throu top kit and puts dacron connectors on by the loop to loop method so only one knot at bung

That's the way I have done it.
