    Just purchased some from JoAnn fabrics, they cost $2.49 for a package of 2.

    I hated to pay that much but I can not find them anywhere else locally. They had several types both in clear and black and they seem to hold good on my UQ.

    Paul, the next time I have an order, I'll get some in basic black.

    With all those colors, I'm kinda surprised they don't make clear.

    May not be your cup o' grog, oldgringo, but for my purposes, a small piece of stiff (but flexible) material with two holes in it makes a simple, ultralight cord clock. Traditionally, these have been made of leather but the design works well with synthetic materials too (Hypalon, &c.).

    Held in a U-shape, the cord runs easily, but binds when released as the material returns to a flatter form.

    When I do paracord drawstrings in my stuffsacks and things, I do a simple 4 lead, 3 bight Turk's Head Knot over the 2 ends, and that works quite well.

    It's better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it.

    Formerly known as Acercanto, my trail name is MacGuyver to some, and Pucker Factor to others.

    It's not procrastinating, its proactively delaying the implementation of the energy-intensive phase of the project until the enthusiasm factor is at its maximum effectiveness. - Randy Glasbergen

    I have had good luck with the cord locks I get from questoutfitters - I either get the mini-mini ones (work with 3/32 cord) or I get the more usual size of Primalock in either black or bright yellow! I have had no problems with either of these.

    After reading this thread and looking at some my own different types of cord locks, my opinion is that what makes a guilty cord lock is the spring Vs. size of cord your using it on.

    I have some cord locks both small and large that are both good and bad, I also have some that get used more then others and you can tell that the spring has lost some of its spring over time and use.
