Here is another little paracord project I did in the last couple of days.  I ususally carry my keys on a caribiner hooked to my belt loop.  My son found these Columbia caribiners with a mulit-tool in them.  They have a knife, file with scredriver and bottle opener and a small saw.

I removed the key chain that was on the caribiner and replaced it with a short paracord lanyard attached to a keyring on the other side. This is a lot stronger than the chain that was on the keyring and I like mine a bit longer so I can have the keys in my pocket with the carabiner attached to my belt loop. 

On the top one, I have my keys and keycard from work on another short lanyard that I can remove when I don't need them.

Thats a good set up with the carabiner and paracord. If you dont mind me asking where did you find those carabiners?

I made one of these last night. I make hemp bracelets all the time, I can't believe I didn't think of this. Haha.  doh.gif

They're really neat though. Thanks for sharing you pictures.

There is nothing charming about the celts ;)

A lot more charming to have on your side of the battlefield instead of on the other side.  :hugegrin:
You will never achieve true personal greatness unless you hold yourself to a higher standard than you hold others.

With all the new and different mistakes out there waiting to be made, why keep repeating the old ones?

There is not enough time to make all the mistakes yourself, so learn from the mistakes of others.

I am now making key lanyards out of paracord, and made a lanyard for my GPS, I am also making them for my Breast Cancer 3 Day team for our credentials we have to wear while on the walk. On the 3 day ones I put Pink ribbon charms on them, and for our one team member who is a survivor she has a survivor pink ribbon, i need to post the pics of them/

Looks good, Fast. What type of knot or pattern did you use to make the round ones (upper left and the one on the right)?
