High-Visibility-Paracord-Pull-Tabs-for-Tactical-Gear-Rattlesnake-Key-FOB-Pyramyd-Airsoft-Blog-Tom-Harris-Media-Tominator_0002
One of the many uses for 550 paracord is to make super handy little pull tabs to assist you with accessing the contents of your tactical gear, such as bags, packs and/or pouches. 

Today, I just wanted to quickly illustrate how handy they can be.  Not only can they help you get a better grip on the zipper, especially if you're wearing bulky gloves that inhibit dexterity, but if you use a contrasting color of paracord when compared to your bag or pouch, it can really help improve your ability to find the zipper in much less time, in the event you were in a low-light situation or in an emergency where timing is of the essence.  Or maybe you're just impatient and don't like having to hunt around for the zipper while getting into your stuff. 

In any event, high-visibility 550 paracord pull tabs are pretty sweet. 

Here's my tutorial on how to make a 550 paracord sling attachment point for your M4 rifle. Ask and ye shall receive (sometimes).

M4 Airsoft Rifle Sling Mount Solutions - Tactical Gear Tip
Tom Harris for the Pyramyd Airsoft Blog
I made a video wherein I discuss a few different options you have when it comes to attaching a sling to your Airsoft M4 Rifle.  I happened to use the Elite Force M4CR and the Elite Force M4 CQB as my guinea pigs, but these are solutions which will work with pretty much most of the M4 AEGs out there on the market.

Paracord Bracelets at Pyramyd Air

Pyramyd Air is now carrying the paracord survival bracelets that we all know & love. 


Paracord has many uses.  It's actually not primarily for making fashionably tactical bracelets, that is the by-product of needing to carry relatively strong rope on your person in case you get stranded somewhere desolate or if the Zombie Apocalypse were to occur.  Not only is Pyramyd Air now carrying the Black/Coyote Tan cobra paracord bracelet you see above, they've also got one in Rose Pink, as a symbol of Breast Cancer awareness.

As I was saying, paracord has many uses.  So many, that I'm not going to list them all here.  However, I will list my favorites, which include, but are not limited to,
- Dental Floss
- Human restraints (this could be a crime if not performed under the appropriate circumstances, so think before you just tie someone up there, buddy)
- Knife lanyards
- Knife handle wraps
- Making a hammock
- Making a snare to catch the world's most deadliest game

- Making a trip wire & attaching something that makes noise to it to alert you in case intruders
- Making fishing line to catch a predator

So anyway, those are a few different uses for paracord, but there are so many more.   The beauty of these paracord bracelets is that everyone is wearing them now (hell, I wear two because I dare to be different).  It's a stylish way to carry the cord on your person while letting others know you're a conformist, but that you're not afraid to survive like a champion.
