This is a good kit because it has more elastics and an extended choice of colors
in the elastics. However, it's not so good because it only gives you one clasp.
The elastics provided are enough to repair or restring several notebooks, but
with only one clasp, the extra elastics just go to waste. I would recommend to
Midori that they provide one clasp for every color of elastic provided. If they
provided more clasps, I would give this kit 5 stars instead of just 3. Another
good option would be a second kit with different colors, such as aqua, pink,
blue, yellow, and teal. The extra colors would really allow for individualized
customization, something Midori seems to promote with lots of their other
I have ordered an elastic locking bead-like device through another source. I
plan to try using that device to hold the elastic on another notebook. Another
option might be to thread the elastic through a button and tie it. However, I
don't think that option would hold the elastic as securely as the clasp that the
kit provides. I really wish that the kit provided more than one clasp, and
additional elastic colors would be nice, too.
