    I hate the noise of metal zipper pull tabs, clanging away with every step.
    Cold fingers struggle to squeeze them and open a pocket.
    It's a little winter time hobby of mine to make para cord pull tabs.
    The two larger knots are mini monkey fists and the other is a padlock knot.
    The monkey fist knots work great on rucksacks, making it very easy to access main compartments.
    Other knots like a diamond knot work great on jackets.
    I used a cobra knot pull tabs on my finds pouch, I've never regretted it. So easy with wet muddy hands to get into the compartments.

    I had not seen knots like these for many years, I used to live in a coastal area and they were very common as key chains, even the kite-type knot or monkey fists carried a steel ball inside to use them as self-defense

    I only done two turns ( to make it a mini ) and a simple knot at the end of the cord instead of a round weight.
    Loads on YouTube to follow and they are alot easier than you would first think.
    I hate watching TV and love making things from nothing. All my kids pick the knot they want and the colour cord, I then put them on all there jackets and backpacks.
