A lighter
Tape measure
Dog tags with key ring

Step 2: Getting Started

Measure out how much paracord you'll need. It's basically one foot for every inch.
Then melt one end of the cords.
Next you need to melt the other ends together.

Step 3: Almost There!

Now you want to get your buckle and un buckle it.
Your gonna take the flat end of the buckle and string the cord through the top of the buckle.
Now your going to pull the cord through till you get to the middle.
Now you have a loop that your gonna put the cord through and pull tight.

Step 4: Home Stretch

So this is a king cobra. It's the same knot it's just over the first set of knots.

So just measure out how much paracord you had at first.
Now melt all the ends together.

Step 7: Adding the Dog Tags
