More Not-So-Typical Tubing Applications


fish with tube lureStandard tubing applications involve the flow of liquids, gas, air, granules or powdered material from point A to point B. But tubing is sometimes used in less conventional ways.

Here are a few of the more unusual applications we've been involved with:

  • Fishing lures — called tube lures or tube bait, 4"-24" pieces of colored PVC or latex tubing are used to simulate the movement and appearance of eels, large worms and scuttling crawfish. The tubing flows and wiggles through the water, making it look irresistible to certain species of fish. Different colors are used for different geographic areas, bodies of water and types of fish.
  • Flexible pens — soft and pliable polyurethane tubing is used as a pen barrel for safety reasons at a mental health facility; the tubing helps prevent the pen from being used as a weapon
  • Bow sight pin covers — flexible tubing of durable Viton® helps protect the line-of-sight pins on recurve and compound bows used in archery
  • Break-away lanyards — 6" pieces of flexible PVC tubing are joined together with short lengths of thin plastic cord to create an identification lanyard that will break away when pulled upon; the PVC material offers comfort while being worn around the neck, while the lanyard's design helps alleviate the potential for choking
  • Cow teat dip application — custom bonded PVC is incorporated into milking machines that apply a medicated liquid to the teats of milk cows before and after the milking process; the liquid typically contains skin conditioners, germicides and a color stain to assure proper application
