Introduction: How to Make a Paracord Guide Chute

Congratulations you made it inside :)

I was inspired when I read the comments on the easy paracord bin lid lifter, and one which was by darkbandit88 and read,
"I love the idea, but I would have to add a chute of some sort, because with my luck, I'd drop the garbage and I would miss, and then have go downstairs and clean up the mess! Haha."

So I thought long and hard on how to make a chute as of today I will no longer keep it secret (is been a week since I did the photos)(it was a good secret!!) you decide!!.

Why are you reading this?(go to step 1)

Step 1: Wrap Till Your Happy!

Yes this is step 1 you found it!!
When you are starting tie a clove hitch (look it up on Instructables (the second result is better))
Then run the paracord down or across to the next bar
There is three different ways I will show you
The first way do a clove hitch run the paracord to the next bar and wrap it around ten (yes ten times) (top photo) squeeze it together (bottom photo)
Go back and forth until you have filled one side of the chute
Scroll down to step 2

Step 2: Choices Choices Choices

In this step I will tell you the three different ways of doing it

Ten wraps: do a clove hitch, then run the paracord to the other side wrap it around ten times, then run the paracord back and wrap it around ten times and continue until you run out of space then move to the next side(as shown in photo number 2 or 3).
Use: Ten twenty or thirty it depends on the size of the square/rectangle/circle (I don't know how a circle would turn out!! if you try it post in the comments:) this would be used to impress friends or just to look cool!! The only down fall is that it uses a lot of paracord :(
If you chose to use bigger rope you wont use as much :)
Three wraps: do a clove hitch, then run the paracord to the other side wrap it around three times, then run the paracord back and wrap it around three times and continue until you run out of space then move to the next side (as shown in photo number 2 or 3).
When you move to the next side do a few more wraps to secure the lines.
One Wrap: do a clove hitch, then run the paracord to the other side wrap it around the object, then run the paracord back and go around and continue until you run out of space then move to the next side (as shown in photo number 2 or 3).
When you move to the next side do a few more wraps to secure the lines.
I have put the photos together so you can chose witch one you want to do

In photo number 4 and 5 are looking down the ten wraps (all of my instructables are done with a phone camera (8mp))

The two photos did surprise me!
