That's not cool. I want to weave my own paracord lanyards. No use buying ready made ones.

Ive seen them for $2-3 at the Lowes Hardware store (in NorthAmerica).  In the department with the chains and ropes.

Really? That small?? I will have to check it out. I like it better than the plastic parachute buckles. Thanks!

Yep, for sure, they have a range of sizes.  Maybe your Lowes is different than mine, but at my Lowes they have a really nice aisle for hardware like this.  Every HomeDepot Ive been to doesnt carry nice thing like this, but Lowes does.

 

They also have lobster claws, and little belt loop things.  3 grades: plated / brass / stainless.  Many sizes too. 

 

But no luck for nylon braid rope, they only had rope to make a clothes line, LOL.

 

I hope your Lowes has some good stuff.  They are kind of new to Canada, Im glad one moved to my area.

The shackle on the first one is useful if you ever have to use the paracord as something other than a bracelet , say in a survival situation .
