Paracord Clip Wrap - Zebra F301 Pen

Introduction: Paracord Clip Wrap - Zebra F301 Pen

The clip on the F301 series pens made by Zebra is unusable, in my opinion. They are too flexible and too thin to clip onto a book/large pocket(hemming makes it very thick.
I simply took paracord, melted it and wrapped it three times. To seal it up, I unscrewed the pen and used a torch (butane, not propane lulz) to melt it, and took a pair of pliers and shoved it under the space where their is a bend (A quality macro is worth about a zillion words!)

I love the 301, and I'm pretty sure you could do it on anything metal barreled (like a M301, yay for standardized testing exam papers)

paracord was spare clippings laying like all over. about 1.5 inches ( ~30mm).

    You may actually break the clip off If you try to clip it onto something; I believe that the clip is to simply hold the paracord in place

     does it make the pen stick to things that its clipped onto any better? 

    reason i ask is because i have a maratac AAA flashlight. I keep it on my pocket but the flip is rather loose and it pops off from time to time.  debating possible solutions for this. thanks.
