Has anyone got any tips when joining paracord together and how strong is it when it's done. Cheers.?

I just hold the two ends to be joined parallel to each other in my left hand (I'm right handed) then in my right hand use whatever lighter I have at the time and melt both pieces they quickly put down the lighter and join the two ends together.
Then I heat and reshape as needed.

I get them bubbly hot and put them together then after about 1-2 seconds quickly roll the joined ends between my thumb and forefinger. It seems to be a very strong bond compared to just pushing them together. Be careful though it's hot!!!:eek:

I roll them together after hot but try to get the smallest join you can otherwise it can catch on the rest of he paracord and pull at it. Make it smooth and the same thickness as the rest

I have started covering the melted joint with a short piece of heat shrink tubing. Had a few joints come apart while tightening and was a pain to unravel to reconnect. Heat shrink tube has seamed to solve that issue so far.

Looks good to connect two different colors but you need access to each end of both pieces of cord, wouldn't work if you run short on a long project that's already woven together or near completion.....
