Hey Bud, gotta light?

9:06 AM | Labels: , |

I like to have a flashlight with me at all times. You just never know when you will need a light to look under the couch for the tiny screw of your eyeglasses that just came out. I always have my keys with me so what better place to carry a tiny flashlight.  I attached the Photon Light to my key chain. It's small, it's bright, and it weighs next to nothing. So here is my problem...

When I need the light, I have to fumble through all my keys to find the light.


So here is the solution to my little problem. When ever I make a project, I sometimes end up with a scrap of cord that may be used for a small project so I keep it. I looked through my scraps and found a piece of paracord about 3 feet long, just perfect for what I planning. I also found a split ring from an old key chain I had laying around.

Loop the paracord through the split ring and begin to tie a Solomon Bar (ABOK((Ashley Book of Knots)) #2496).
Continue to tie the Solomon Bar until you either run out of cord or until the knot is long enough. Cut the ends off with sharp scissors and melt the ends with a lighter.

USE CAUTION WHEN MELTING ENDS OF PARACORD. MELTED CORD IS EXTREMELY HOT AND CAN CAUSE BURNS
I now attach the Photon Light to the loop of the key fob. The key fob is longer than anything else on my key chain. So no matter how I grab for my keys, the light is always the lowest hanging item so I can always find it right away.

Problem solved.
