    I'd like to get a 550 cord lanyard for my badge at work. Like the one's you wear around your neck.

    Know what's better than a 550 cord bracelet to use as a torniquet?

    A torniquet!

    They really are cheap and much, much faster than trying to figure out how to unravel a fashion statement when your bleeding out.

    Has anyone here actually even tried to make a tourniquet out of a para cord bracelet? One handed?

    I think it would take me anywhere from 2 to 5 minutes to come up with something actually useable. Para cord is really slick, too, I think it would be hard to get a strong enough "bite" to really cut off blood flow and keep it stopped with a knot... One handed....

    Yeah that's just not gonna happen. Kudos to whoever can, but I'm not mcguyver enough so I'll just use a CAT as Barstoolguru posted.

    I just order the cord and make my own. The very last step I burn the cord and make it flush with a popsicle stick. To unravel it just cut the burned part off and pull.

    I thought it was going to be a video of someone applying a tourniquet to a cat.

    My 11 yo son is a Boy Scout. I made a Paracord bracelet for him.
    Ended up making a bunch for the other scouts! They do come in handy. We have used them to repair tent lines and the like.
    A small/medium sized single Cobra wrap contains
    about 12 feet of Paracord. A larger one for as bigger man can have over 16 feet. You can also make a belt in any width and length you want. I believe an average belt can hold up to 75 feet or more.I think I am gonna try it and see if it has enough "body" to it to be an effective gun belt.
    You can buy clasps or buckles at any hobby/sewing store cheap.. I but my cord at a local army/navy store for about $10 for 100 feet. And lots of different colors too.
    Look around at different knot sites and there are ways to make a toggle clasp with the paracord.

    This is as great site to get started with: Stormdrane's Blog

    One you get the hang of it, you can make them in you sleep.

    I picked up some para cord and make the bracelets myself. I've also made key chains and a watch band. They have come in handy a couple times when needed to tie things down and once as an impromptu tourniquet.

    You could buy a cheap Chinese made on on eBay, buy the cord and get frustrated making it yourself, buy one from survival straps and pay too much, or you could buy one from getcorded.com and we'll donate to the forum on your behalf.

    I agree with some of the others on going it on your own. Buy some 550 and weave it yourself to whatever your particular specifications are. Unless you lack hands or have severe arthritis or something it can be a good learning experience...and fun when you get good at it.
    This was the first one I made myself and it's my EDC for my keys and such:
