    Default Uses for paracord scraps

    Sometimes I have a few inches of loose paracord left over after I make a lanyard or wrap. One use I've found for these 'scraps' is stitching them to a pack or pouch, as lash points or daisy chains. The small diameter of the cord works especially well when using carabiners or split rings. If anybody else knows of any good uses for these little bits of cordage, please share. Thanks.

    If you want neater ends when you cut the cord wrap it first with masking tape where you are going to cut it. Cut through the tape and the cord. Then with the tape still on singe the end. The tape holds the cord tight and you get a nice even melt.

    Neat idea! I use my scraps as zipper pulls to replace the noisy metal ones! I've run out of zippers so I just toss 'em in a bag. Now I have another use! Thanks
