Its a long and boring process but wind up the paracord by twisting the bolt.
Hey man, I'm fourteen also and i think its great how you're into this kind of stuff. I thought it was a great idea and i cant wait to try it myself but i think that instead of winding it up by hand i'm going to get a little help from my friend, the power drill. -- Live long and prosper

Thanks, I found it easier to do by hand but whatever your more comfortable with. I would recommend a slower speed when using the drill. Its cool to know I'm not the only 14 year old on here.

You should add a sharp blade to the bit that opens and closes so it cuts it without needing anything else. Or you could mount part of a Stanley knife blade to the bottom of the opening and push the orange opening down onto the blade to cut the para cord.

Alternatively you could put the end of the bolt into the drill and wind it up mega quickly XD
