Reader Tip for Difficult Paracord Projects

By The ITS Crew

We were recently contacted by one of our readers, Nick, who had a great idea to utilize a small nail fused onto the the working end of a length of paracord.

This not only provides a better tip than fused paracord alone, but will give you a helping hand to weave paracord, somewhat similar to a fid or a marlinspike  in traditional ropework.

Nick started with a medium sized bullet-head nail that he filed the tip on, to avoid snagging. He then inserted the nail into the working end of the paracord sheath and fused the sheath to the nail.

We’d like to thank Nick for providing the tip and hope that everyone got something out of it! Try it on your next paracord project!
