We purchased the buckles on the right to make the bracelet on the left... trouble is. 550 paracord won't easily fit through the holes. It LOOKS like it would compress enough to get through them, but I'm a loss how to get them through the holes. Has anyone used anything like this? I've tried needles, tiny straight blade screw drivers and just can't make it work. There HAS to be a trick I don't know. WOuld love to hear some thoughts.
