I have a unique keychain made from Paracord. One of my friends noticed and asked why I would get a Paracord keychain when there are so many other options out there.
My friend was not that familiar Paracord though, so I needed to explain a little bit about the history of Paracord and many of the different ways that it can be used. I have divided the uses of Paracord into three broad categories: Day to day use, Survival and Adventure.
Parachute cord (also Paracord or 550 cord when referring to type-III Paracord) is a lightweight nylon kernmantle rope originally used in the suspension lines of US parachutes during World War II. Once in the field, paratroopers found this cord useful for many other tasks. It is now used as a general-purpose utility cord by both military personnel and civilians. This versatile cord was even used by astronauts during the 82nd Space Shuttle mission to repair the Hubble Space Telescope.
Day To Day Use
We can use Paracord for many different purposes such as securing items, relocating or moving heavy debris and fixed objects and strapping things together. You can use it as a clothes line during camping, securing tarps to trees, or simply securing your gear. You can use Paracord as an alternative to your belt for your trousers!
You can use Paracord as a harness to escape a burning building. Paracord can be used as an emergency snare or emergency suture. You can use this cord to tie straight sticks around a broken limb to make a splint or a sling to hold your arm. It can replace damaged or missing draw strings in packs, bags and sweat pants. The Paracord from this very keychain can be used as a tourniquet for controlling bleeding.
Paracord works well as fishing line or boot laces. You may want to wrap the handle of your knife to create a better grip. You can make a hammock out of Paracord or use it to make a bow drill to start a fire. You can easily use the inner strands to make a fishing net.
