I feel very stupid for having to ask this but I can use my brain and figure out what the hell this thing is called.

The elastic band found on some gear to help secure the straps in place. What is it called (if it has a fancy a name) and can I buy them pre-made? I know I could make them fairly simply but I don't have a sewing machine and I hate sewing by hand.

Sorry for such a stupid question. Thanks in advance.

Can't use my brain. Jeez I feel like I'm having a mini-stroke trying to figure this out.

Retention straps, retention bands, webbing strap, etc etc. Lots of names for it

Bro, I've always just used 90mph tape or just electrical tape if in a pinch. Do an S-fold on your shit and you can keep it adjustable even after you tape it down. It's a lot better than the elastic and won't have you struggling when the elastic goes out.

Another option is to use ranger bands. these are made from bicycle inner tube and are quite a bit more stout than the elastic keepers. You can often get tubes for free at your local bike shop and they're almost as useful as paracord.
