    Hi UniqueRopeCraft,

    Do you know anything about preshrinking paracord?Is it necessary? Does it only apply to some cords?

    Thanks, Jack

  2. @Jack: I've never given any thought to preshrinking paracord. Though it may shrink a little when wet, of the many bracelets I've worn, they've never shrunk to the point of becoming uncomfortable to wear.

    I made something similar but wrapped up a bill inside to have emergency money on my keychain. And, since its tied up and tough to get to, it really makes it for true emergencies, not just inconveniences.

    Everytime I try it wants to twist, it won't lay flat. Any help?

  5. Simple and fun! I will post my result on http://paracord-projects.net/. Paracord is really useful and I find this to be a great way to store it!


  6. Hey there!
    This is a fun and very useful project! I have made these myself but I like to use a quick deploy cobra knot. It make it more of a survival item.
