Why paracord keychains? - Before moving on to paracord keychain instructions

Paracord keychains are an amazing way to be productive, creative and maybe even earn a few bucks (some people even sell them!).

There are many things i consider keychains in the blog:

Well for keychains paracord is suitable because of its durability, colorful looks, low cost and ease of creating with paracord (cords are smooth and easy to work with).

The paracord keychain basic supplies - Finally some paracord keychain instructions i can use!

For the basic paracord keychain you do not need much. Just a piece of paracord 550 (550 is a type of paracord that can withstand 550 pounds of weight) and a lighter.

I suggest trying Amazon below, they hold a huge selection of available paracord colors.

These other supplies, called snap hooks are used to make keychains better at their task. I like the second ones myself, the ones called Monster S shape Carabiner, they are just classy!
