Paracord has about a thousand and one uses. But I have to admit what
attracted me to paracord first was the beautiful bright colors it comes
in. While it originally seems to have had a purely military function, (I
understand the idea is that you can wear a bracelet made of it which you
can unravel in a survival situation and have a piece of functional cord)
paracord has become a popular thing to make bracelets out of for other
reasons. Paracord bracelets have a place with organizations who make them
for use in fund raisers or with folks just wearing them as a fashion
I do NOT know how to make a paracord bracelet! But for
those of you who do, here is the paracord and here is a paracord buckle:

Paracord rope is not intended for use in
applications such as tree work or as personal safety lines where danger to life,
limb or property exists. The paracord rope on this page is not to be used to raise loads
or persons. It is not to be used as safety lines. It is not to be used where
life, limb or personal safety are involved. Typical paracord uses include
attaching equipment to harnesses, securing camouflage nets to trees or

Never stand in line with a rope or cord under load. Rope has
built in elasticity and a snap back can occur if there is a break. Estimated
break strengths are for new and unused rope. A knot can reduce rope strength by
over 50%. Store rope out of sunlight to prevent degrading.
Working loads are for rope in good condition with appropriate
splices and under normal service conditions. Working loads are not applicable
when rope is subject to shock or dynamic loading. These can cause failure to a
rope that is normally strong enough to handle the job.
