Rubber band

A rubber band (also known as an elastic band or gum band) is a loop of rubber, usually ring shaped, and commonly used to hold multiple objects together. The rubber band was patented in England on March 17, 1845, by Stephen Perry. Most rubber bands are manufactured out of natural rubber, and are sold in a variety of sizes.

Rubber bands last longer when they're refrigerated? They also make awesome makeshift children's guitar strings ;]
