daviddephillips submitted a new resource:

Key Fob Survival Cord. - Key Fob Key Chain made of Survival Cord.

This is a companion item to a similar bracelet. Primary use is for a Key Chain Fob, but if your waling the Camino or outdoor hiking this Paracord can become a useful survival tool. Made from military spec. Paratrooper Cord. Fade resistant and nearly impossible to break. IF you ever need to unravel and use in a survival situation we will replace it.

Bracelet----Similar ones at Target stores have a buckle that is a whistle. They also say you can easily unravel to make longer or shorter but don't explain how. $9.99 at Target;$4.99 at Wal-Mart. Guess they would be OK in survival situation in the Artic but in other locations it's pretty easy to make your own cordage.

We take pride in all materials manufactured and assembled in USA. It is a reflection why we have lost so many jobs to other countries for cheap labor for inferior products. If life boils down to dollars and cents, you will be left with many dollars and no sense.
Our proceeds go to wounded warrior programs and other survival episodes.

I hope the new link works for you.
Hola David and thanks for the PM - the new links work ok. Although I am not sure which one is most suitable - there appear to be 3 different types - one for around $24 and the others at around $32. Any recommendations??
Cheers

the $32 is for the Bracelet. shipping not included to Australia but doubt it would add more then $8dollars.

Of course they won't tell you how to put it back together, since it would be tricky to reuse the paracord. The thing with this survival bracelets it's not the cord itself, but the strings that are inside it. So for instance, a 1m paracord, with 7 strings inside, have 7 meters of cord inside ;)

@daviddephillips, what kind of paracord do you use on the bracelets?

Youtube shows how to unravel one and put it back together...but best of all YouTube shows how to add fish hooks and line to make the bracelet a better survival item. Going to try doing it.

Also Youtube gives good advice to buy or make your own bracelet using curved plastic buckles, not flat buckles.

It's all the same thing, I've seen both, and both work ;)

The problem is when you open the paracord itself.

you can put it back if you have some weaving skills. Our Paracord is current Military Specifications with 10 mil cords twined inside each cord.

Be my guest buy those materials from Wmart or other import. You most likely never going to be in a survival situation.
. All our materials made, assembled in USA . affects cost certainly we are aware of it. All purchases donate to our wounded warriors charity. we do not try and defend price.
