Introduction: Simple Cheap Fast Paracord Storage!!!

Picture of Simple Cheap Fast Paracord Storage!!!

If you are anything like me you're tired of digging through whatever container you keep your paracord in, only to come out feeling like Clark W. Griswold with his Christmas lights.

I have tried many things including those fancy little "donuts".

Here's my problem: I'm lazy and I don't see the point of sitting for hours tying a big paracord donut just so I can turn around and unravel it to tie my next project.

Here’s my solution: Cheap Fast Spools!
1st I went to Sears and bought a plastic rolling tool box on sale for $11.99.
It holds all of my stuff - scissors, buckles, hemostats, paracord Everything.
Plenty of portable storage.
Next I found a 2pack of paint rollers at the dollar store.
Then I came home and grabbed my drill and a hole saw.
Inserted the hole saw into the end of the paint roller.
Tied off one end of Paracord.
Held the cord tight and squeezed the trigger.

Enjoy!!

For a Mentally Ill Cowboys fan, this is one hell of an idea. This Mentally Ill Packers fan is hitting Sears up first thing in the morning to achieve the same setup. Thank you for you sacrifice for our safety.

You are welcome for the Service. If you have any problems finding the toolbox at Sears, I have seen one that is a similar set-up at Wal-Mart. Although, I'm not sure how much it is.

This is absolutely brilliant. I'm stopping at Harbor Freight on the way home for rollers.

Cool idea. This would be great to use for all kinds of cord-like storage, including Christmas light strands. I'll have to remember this when packing stuff away in January.

From one vet (Desert Storm/Desert Shield era mission support) to another, thanks for your service!!!
