Introduction: Easy Paracord Survival Key Fob
Here I will show you how to make an easy paracord key fob. It is used for survival because when unraveled, you get 4 feet of paracord that has been tested to hold 450 lb.!!!!!!
Step 1: Stuff
What you need:
Paracord (about 3.5 feet)
About 5 mintues
If this was made into a kit, it would include 4 feet of paracord, a keyring, mini-scissors, a cheap plastic ruler, and possibly a cheapo lighter.
Step 2: Attaching to the Keyring
- Fold the paracord piece in half
- Pull the folded paracord through the keyring
- Bring the bottom pieces up around the keyring and through the loop at the top
Step 3: Weaving the Fob
The easiest way for me to explain this is with pictures, so just look at the pics and read all the captions.
Step 4: Finishing
Continue weaving until you have squeezed in as many knots as possible in front of the keyring. Make sure the last knot is tight and then cut the excess cord off and melt it down to prevent unraveling.
Step 5: Go Use It!
Attach it to your keys! Now when you reach in your pocket to get your keys you can just grab the fob! And if you get into an emergency situation, you can unravel this for 4 feet of extra-strong paracord!
Thanks for looking! If you make this, post a pic in the comments so I can see how you did!
