Make sure the "commonly available ends" are stainless, or your wasting your time and putting users at risk. And pull-test the crimps to make sure they're secure.

Erm to get it the right length so it isn't permanently over stretched and I have to keep buying new ones??

Are you going to tell me that I shouldn't ever do that in case I fall into the outboard motor with it still attached??

They don't fit into the control box as they are slightly wider than the genuine ones.

Why is your existing kill cord being "permanently over stretched" ?

Different boats have different kill cord arrangements. New Merc engines have the kill cords on the front edge of the throttles so unless the kill cord is on your wrist (which I don't like) so it is over stretched putting it round my leg. Having a custom kill cord length would be much better. There is no reason why this would be inferior to mass produced kill cords.

I get very frustrated when people suggest that a longer kill cord isn't a good idea because they can fall overboard and the kill cord not activate. Yes on a small tiller steer engine but not gonna happen with a centre console rib!!
