    Po Man Continous Loop

    Hey y'all. I was messing around the other day with some paracord and decided to try something. I cut a piece of paracord long enough for a bracelet. I pulled the strings out inside. Burnt one end together and stuffed it inside the other end. I then took gorilla glue and glued the seam together. Let it dry. Bingo..continuos loop. I've pulled on this thing as hard as I can and cannot pull it apart. I've used it on the hammock setup and it worked just fine.

    That is real thinking outside the box, keep testing and please post the results.
    An old adage comes to mind though, don't hang higher than you're willing to fall.

    Did you use it on your hammock suspension? I wouldn't trust it for weight bearing. Paracord's breaking stength is on the low side of safety as it is and now without the core it's significantly lower. If you're talking tarp set up then that's cool.
