  • Uses for 550 Paracord - Let's put our heads together!

    Ok, here it goes...Let's see how many different uses we can come up with for 550 cord. As long as it works you can list it, doesn't matter how obvious or not so obvious it is as long as you know it works!

    Everyone can list up to 4 ideas max so we can get broad range of ideas. Do not repeat anybody elses ideas.

    *By dividing the inner strands even smaller it can work as dental floss.

    *By actually melting it to a drip you can use it as a temporary adhesive.

    *Tourniquet

    *Shoe laces

            You could boil the inner strands and use as stitches.

            Repair clothing by sewing with the inner.

            Can be used to make a bow for friction fire lighting.

            To get your kit bag up in the trees away from animals..
