      I have used vinyl hose on it's side for a bumper (still working fine outdoors several years later) and also for a shaft coupling.  Just hadn't thought of tensioning a screw with it.

      Or, for example on the riding mower I use, there is a solid rubber bushing that they use to tension the belt instead of a spring. 

      So things like 'rubber' hose, gas line or Car heater hose type, can be compressed on the side or from the ends to make usable 'springs'
