Introduction: Single Strand Lanyard

Picture of Single Strand Lanyard

The single strand lanyard can have loops of any size. The lanyard can have fixed position loops such as the examples in the top photo. The knot can also adjust to hold a broom off the floor or hold a flashlight securely or anything else you might think of

Please be aware of the hazards of wearing a lanyard around your neck. This lanyard does not have a break-away feature. I carry the wrist lanyard only around the palm and back of my hand for the same reason.
