Problem: The strap of my small mouthed Nalgene finally broke.
Good Timing: Paracord contest going on.
Fix: Replace strap with paracord.
What do you do when your vintage Nalgene with BPA has a broken cap strap? Fix it with paracord!
Paracord is durable, cheap and has a nice feel to it so it is ideal for a cap loop that will get lots of use.
Step 1: Remove Broken Strap
The strap to my Nalgene cap finally broke. Cut off the broken piece. Find or cut an appropriate length of paracord. I have a personal aversion to cutting rope so I used what I had already cut. I wanted to make sure that the cap did not hit the table when in the open position. I suggest also adding 3 times the loop's length for braiding of the strap for a good starting point for the initial rope length.
