    Paralok

    This one is 14 inches, Emerald Green with steel rings.









    We could all use a hand with securing our stuff together when we travel. In case you are wondering how strong it is, I am 300 lbs and put it over the rafter in my garage and put a large screwdriver through the rings and pulled on it as hard as I could with no effect.- George

    What are you securing? I'm pretty certain that my Kershaw would get your 'stuff' in about 3 seconds...I'm just sayin'...

    I did a web search and came up with nothing. Does this have a steel cable inside? Where do you get them?

    Made it. Might try making one with a cable inside. At least one person got the idea. Just like if they wanted into your bag bad enough they could just slash it with a razor blade.

    I is how I make my dog collars too.

    Nice neat job.
    That might hurt really badly if you were to accidentally hit somebody with that lock attached to it.
    That has real travel potential.

    Paracord is really strong stuff with the 7 cord tested to over 500lbs.

    For the past couple of weeks I've been practicing various paracord knife handle wrap styles.

    I want to attempt to do a paracord sheath wrap on my next large Busse.

    Here is a tip for ya, soak your paracord in hot water just before wrapping, when you are done hit it with a hair dryer.- George

    Thanks. Much appreciated. I'm a total newbie on paracord.

    Nice work. I made a lanyard with a monkey fist on the end, spiral braid, and ended with a keychain ring. Attached that to my pocket light. Instant bludgeon if I need it, and makes it easy to get to. I hang the cord out of my pocket at work. All I had was white, need to get some green or black. Less noticeable. Just proves, a weapon is anything you can get your hands on.

    Now that sounds like a great idea for dog collars...any pics of your other stuff?
