I've always wondered how can i attach the dog tag on the collar, so that do not jingle all the time. Here is my little solution to it.

Step 1: Materials and tools

>> paracord (about 2 ft.)

>> scissors
>> paracord needle
>> lighter

Step 2: The lanyard knot

At first we make a lanyard knot. A description of this can be found very quickly in the internet.

Step 3: The first strand

Аt first we bring one end of the cord out.

Step 4: Knotting

We follow the bottom strand on the knot (on the right side) all the way and finally going thru the middle.

Step 5: Making a loop

We start from the top with the second strand and form a loop. Then we follow another strand (on the left side) all the way. Finally we go under four strands thru the middle.

This technique i learned from Paracordist Creations LLC of www.paracordist.com.
Here you can find his YouTube video:

Step 6: Cut and burn
