    Alternative to monkey-fist zipper pull

    This is what I have done for the lid zipper on my Aeronaut. It's called a cobra knot, and if that's not a cool name for something I don't know what is! As an added bonus you can untie it and you have a yard of 2 mm cord that you can use to:
    • make a clothesline
    • replace a shoelace
    • make an emergency belt
    • lash your bag to an alpaca, vehicle or sturdy friend
    • make a splint with sticks or a magazine
    • build an impromptu shelter
    • build an impromptu pillow-fort
    • make a tripwire to alert you to intruders
    • make a hair tie
    • spice up your love life
    • hold your seedy hotel door closed
    • snare rat living in seedy hotel
    • along with duct tape; repair just about anything
    • individual strands can be used for thread, floss, fishing line etc...
    • the list goes on and on..... Add any of your own below!

    I use the same knot (I call it a Solomon bar) for all sorts of things including as a very chunky key ring!

    Brilliant! along with the bigger carabiner you have everything you need to set up an emergency anchor to rappel out of a seedy motel window using your bed sheets! (Don't try this at home kids!) although I will say tied diagonally a queen bed sheet is good for one floor...
    Watch Cirque du Soliel aerial silk artists for style tips... Lol
