On today’s Knot of the Week I’ll be covering the Paracord Deployment Lanyard, which will enable you to not only carry paracord ready to use, but can quickly deploy various lengths of it in a way that’s easy to manage. As most know that have worked with stored paracord, it can easily become unwieldy and tangled as you try to unspool just what you need.
The Paracord Deployment Lanyard can be created with nothing more than paracord and a lighter to fuse the paracord in two places. Check out the video below for a demonstration of how it works and to learn how to make your own!
(Strength: 2/Secure: 3/Stability: 2/Difficulty: 2) See below for what these ratings mean.
Each knot will be assigned a rating from 1-5 (1 representing the lowest score) based on the following four properties:
Strength – All knots will weaken the strength of a rope, however, there are knots that are stronger than others. The scale here will reflect how strong the rope remains with the specified knot.
Security – The security scale refers to how well the knot will stay tied, and resist coming loose under a normal load.
Stability – Stability refers to how easily the knot will come untied under an abnormal load (i.e. the knot being pulled in a direction it was not intended to) A lower score here represents instability.
Difficulty – The lower the number, the easier a knot is to tie.
