Thanks... this is very helpful. In my case I used a shoelace for a pair of heavy hiking boots. Very similar to paracord, except it does not require burning the ends.

Thanks again,

Thanks for this! After making one exactly as shown here, I decided to make a couple of modifications. The first thing I found was that standard paracord was rather heavy for my light framed prescription glasses. So I decided to gut the inner fibers of both paracord pieces. I used a piece only 9 inches long for the cinch, to further cut down on the weight.
The end result is terrific, and I now have all 4 pairs of various glasses fitted with this Instructable. I plan to make a bunch more for friends and family. And no more watching in horror as my expensive prescription glasses twirl while making its way down to bottom of the lake while fishing. lol

Thanks again.

making a Paracord Item -- Thanx go out to trans4mation for the step by
step - easy to follow instructions. The 3' length paracord measurements
where right on - perfect fit - really like being able to easily adjust
the lanyard's length. No way I will lose my glasses the next camping
