Rubber Band On Bird Kite
How do I attach the rubber band?
I have a Kite Factory "Bird Kite" with spinners, tails, etc. I have not found a picture of this kite anywhere on the i-net so I do not know what type it is. I attached a picture of the kite itself and the area where the rubber band is supposed to be. How does the rubber band attach? You can see my attempt in the up close picture. Is it correct?
This is a bit tough without more information... In fact, I really think your best bet would be to seek out a bricks-and-mortar kite shop or 2 and pester the staff a little :-)
This would be best done face-to-face. Take along all the bits and pieces of the kite and ask a knowledgeable kite person to help you assemble the kite. And figure out exactly what the rubber band is supposed to achieve!
It might help if you also buy some extra flying line or something too, to make it more worth their while. What you pay will be more than re-paid in pure flying fun when you're out on some beach watching your cool bird kite floating way up there in a smooth sea breeze.
Another thought: contact the manufacturers and see if they will email you a close-up photo or 2 to help you out.
I'm sorry that I can't help much more than this.
(Constructive comments from people who have bought the odd retail bird kite are welcome of course!)

As the article goes on to explain, a few nice single-line Parafoils are covered as well. This was written when we attended the 2008 Adelaide International Kite Festival. Plenty of photos!
