Introduction: Paracord Shoe Laces
I call these dedicated paracord laces because they were made specifically to be shoe laces (as opposed to the expectation of removing them for other uses). All it takes is a curling iron, super glue, dental floss, and a plastic bag.
Don't forget to enter the Paracord Contest. You could win your own Fish Bones to tie your paracord laces with!
Step 1: Gut the Cord.
If you have melted ends, cut them off. Pull out the inner strands and set them aside.
Step 2: Fray the Ends
Wet the cord and use a comb to undo about 1" of braiding. In my opinion wet paracord frays faster than when it's dry.
Step 3: Flat Iron
Pull the paracord through a curling iron until its both flat and dry. Make sure to keep the cord moving so no one spot gets too hot. You don't want to melt it.
Step 4: Make Aglets
Tie off the ends with dental floss right at the point where the fraying stops. I used a constrictor knot. This knot creates a stopping point for the super glue. Saturate the frayed end and use your hand under a plastic bad to form the aglet. Hang dry.
Step 5: Trim
Use a razor blade to trim the aglets to size. Now all that's left is to lace them in.
