Picture of How to Sheath Dog Tags With Paracord.

I used to see this as a soldier. It's an easy modification using paracord. 

1. Measure out a piece of paracord as long as your ball chain. 

2. Pull out six inner strands leaving one remaining in the mantle. 

3. Tie a knot in one end of the single strand.

5. Thread the chain through the mantle by pulling the strand. 

6. Melt the ends to prevent fraying.
