Silirings stow bands by ParaSport Italia.
Silrings are round silicone stow bands for your suspension lines and come 10 to a pack in a single size. Silirings work great on HMA, Vectran and Spectra line because of how small they are in circumference. The larger sizes are made for larger Tandem Dacron and Vectran lines.
See the chart for the best size for your canopy. Most of the time combining two sizes works best with using a larger size for the first one or two locking stows and then a smaller size for the remainder.
Silirings have been tested in the field using extreme jumping conditions and the results have been spectacular. Silicone has proven to be far superior to other products when used in adverse skydiving environments -- hot/cold/dry/humid. They do not get sticky or dirty and have a comfortable elasticity. Though they seem to be pricey initially, they will last for an indefinite number of jumps when used in normal jumping conditions and quickly pay for themselves with ease of use and low maintenance.
You must activate the Silirings before use – stretch them repeatedly before installation (this makes them more malleable). Silirings do not need to be tight like rubber bands – they are designed to break if they are too tight.

- Nice material. Ill conceived productization.
I bought size 3, hoping I could double wrap my locking stowes but they're too small. I used a spring scale and found that a single wrap through a closing stow could be unstowed with too little force, and double stowing is not an option. I considered getting size 2 and single wrapping, but honestly, it freaks me out a little that these likely will not break if you need them too.
This product would be much better with more throrough instructions and sizing guides. Are they designed to be single or double wraped? No idea. Should the extraction force for these be the same as for rubber band, or more since they grip the lines far less? No idea.
