Downloads: A new file has been added by OLDWarrior64:

Tangle Free 550 Cord Donut.

I posted this in a discussion thread a few months back and thought I should post it here for anyone to download for reference.

I've used this method for years as a way to prep and carry my 550 cord and it has never failed me.

You might think it is a bit time consuming, but the time saved by not untangling 550 cord when you need it you will find WELL worth it.

Hope this helps.:thumb:

Thanks much for this info! I'd bought a spool (1000 feet?) of paracourd a couple of months ago and wanted to store some of it in my two vehicles but couldn't come up with a good way. I'd thought about rolling it up like a ball of yarn but I knew it would unravel on me so I just didn't do anything. I saw this method last night and liked it so much that I immediately took my spool of paracord and made THREE of these donuts!

(Now all I have to do is actually place them in the vehicles! lol)

Great Idea but could you make a youtube video for the conceputially challanged. It would help even more.

I'll give it a shot. I have some more files to post, about as many steps. I'll even give some strategic 'product placements' for you in the video brother:thumb:

Okay to repost?

Once I have enough posts and can download files, would it be okay if I download the file and add it to our Boy Scout Troops web site? We do a weekly "gear minute" and a couple of weeks ago I demonstrated how to make a paracord donut, but we try to post information about the gear minutes for future reference on the site:

Thanks,

Hey guys, a 2 or 3 liter soda bottle, with cord threaded into the bottle, and a hole in the top to pull out what you need works great for a truck or equipment box.

The donut works pretty well, trick is to not put so much in the roll so it is stiff and a pita to carry in your pants pocket.
Very true, I usually keep a decent size donut in the pack where it's easilly accessible, and maybe a small one in a cargo or jacket pocket.
