    Those would make nice zipper pulls. You would need a smaller split ring then the one in the pic.

    Thanks. I generally don't make zipper puills using paracord. I just think they are too bulky. THe paracord pulls are ideal though for winter jackets when gloves are being worn.
    I usually use a sturdy lanyard clip for my zippper pulls. A friend with arthritis said that split rings gave her difficilty. Lanyard clips are easier to use.

    I carry a big supply of zipper pulls. I give out several a day when I am away from home. To helpful store clerks, as an extra tip to waitstaff. At one recent wait for my car to be serviced I gave away 3 to a amother and her two well behaved children who were looking at me making the star knot pull. I get a kick out of giving these away and the recipients are grateful, especially the unappreciated store clerks. Tony

    That's a nice and generous idea.
