The biggest issue with 550 cord is it will quickly get tangled, leaving you spending hours and extra energy managing your rat’s nest of cord. There are so many projects and ways to store 550 on your tool handles or by wrapping it neatly around items, and we will show you some of these in every issue. These are great when you are in a survival situation and that is all you have, but what about when you are just in the wilderness and you need some cord. You are not going to unwrap that neat and pretty handle on your knife or where ever you have it wrapped up. No, you spent hours wrapping and making it look good. So, how do you keep useable 550 cord in your day pack without fear of unwrapping just a foot or two? This is how, with a simple daisy chain ring. This will unwrap easily and you can just take what you need without the whole thing unwrapping.
