Ok, so I got some dog tags but the ball chain pulls my long hippie hair when I take it off. I saw on the web a picture of a tag chain with gutted paracord covering the chain. I tried it this night but the cord was 1 or 2 inches too short on either side of the first tag. I tried it again and the same thing happened! What am I doing wrong and how should I put the chain through the paracord because I'm pushing it and I'm thainking that could be part of the problem.

When I try a new paracord project I always start out with much more than needed, just in case it comes up short. Try that.

This ^^

Also, you can take one of the strands of gut, tie it to your chain, and pull it thru.
and this^^ equal success.

Good luck

What I would do is push it through with extra cord and then boil it to shrink the cord over the chain! I might just try it myself to see how it looks. Thanks for the spark of genus!

Have you tried a small safety pin, attach the chain and thread both through the cord?
The end of the chain should fit in the "hole" at the end of the safety pin.
