Step 1: Materials...

You will need a bolt, nut, empty 200 count tic tac container, and paracord.

Step 2: Drill Some Holes...

Drill a hole through the center of the closed tic tac container, Insert the bolt and lightly screw on the bolt, tape the end of the paracord to the bolt.

Step 3: Wind It Up!!!

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.

    A great idea for Hunters, Campers and general outdoorsman. I would use a Lock Nut or a Nylock® Nut to prevent it from backing off in your pocket, while allowing you to have it as tight as you want. I would also drill a small hole through the bolt to thread the cord through (if you have the bits).

    Thanks, I don't know how well I could get a hole through the bolt with my drill but you could probably do it with a drill press.

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

    I was condisering that but I wanted to do it as cleanly as possible so I could have as much paracord as possible.
