Aluminum cord lock on 11/26/2012 11:31:47 MST Print View

I'm looking for something like a cord lock, for cinching up a drawstring, for a high-temperature application. I found heavy, solid zinc cord locks for fashion apparel, but I was hoping they might be available in aluminum as well. Has anyone seen these?

I plan to use it for a fabric windscreen for a stove, and the usual cordlock plastics (polypropylene, nylon, acetal) are likely to melt.

I don't know where to buy them but they do exist. Eddie Bauer used to put them on some items.
