Billy Collins - The Lanyard Complete video at: fora.tv Former US Poet Laureate Billy Collins reads his poem, "The Lanyard." ----- Poet Billy Collins is a unique literary figure - a widely read contemporary poet.

Luma Loop Lanyard Test A test showing the amount of weight that the Luma Loop Lanyard, especially the Duraflex Rock Lockster buckle, can hold. The weight of a Canon Rebel XSi with kit lens is 1.6 pounds. The weight of a Nikon D3s and 24-70 f/2.8 Lens is 5.1 pounds. This video shows the Lanyard successfully holding 250 pounds. That's 50 times the weight of a D3s with 24-70 lens and over 150 times the weight of a Canon Rebel with its kit lens.
How to tie a lanyard knot More knotty stuff on my blog: This video tutorial shows how to tie a lanyard knot with a loop. I used and 18 inch length of paracord for the demonstration, which is more than needed, but this will work with various length of cord. After the knot is tied, I also show the adjustment of the loop size by finding one of the loop leads and creating slack, which is worked back thru the knot. You can do it the other way around to make the loop longer. This is just the way 'I' learned to tie this knot, there are other methods shown in books and online if you look for them. More paracord work can be found on and google will also bring up a lot of info. The music with the video is from YouTube's audioswap, and is listed as 'The Tar Baby' by Ryan Kickland. Knot responsibly.
The Lanyard HAPPY MOTHERS DAY!! I love Billy Collins, and thought this poem was appropriate and hilarious. Love to all the mothers! The Lanyard - Billy Collins The other day I was ricocheting slowly off the blue walls of this room, moving as if underwater from typewriter to piano, from bookshelf to an envelope lying on the floor, when I found myself in the L section of the dictionary where my eyes fell upon the word lanyard. No cookie nibbled by a French novelist could send one into the past more suddenly— a past where I sat at a workbench at a camp by a deep Adirondack lake learning how to braid long thin plastic strips into a lanyard, a gift for my mother. I had never seen anyone use a lanyard or wear one, if thats what you did with them, but that did not keep me from crossing strand over strand again and again until I had made a boxy red and white lanyard for my mother. She gave me life and milk from her breasts, and I gave her a lanyard. She nursed me in many a sick room, lifted spoons of medicine to my lips, laid cold face-cloths on my forehead, and then led me out into the airy light and taught me to walk and swim, and I, in turn, presented her with a lanyard. Here are thousands of meals, she said, and here is clothing and a good education. And here is your lanyard, I replied, which I made with a little help from a counselor. Here is a breathing body and a beating heart, strong legs, bones and teeth, and two clear eyes to read the world, she whispered, and here, I said, is the ...
How to make a round crown sinnet paracord lanyard/fob More knotty stuff on my blog: You'll need two pieces of gutted paracord, one 30 inches the other 25 inches. This will make a finished fob with a 3 inch loop and a 2 inch body. You'll also need scissors and a lighter. Knot responsibly.

How to tie a square sinnet lanyard When I wanted to make a square sinnet lanyard for my keyring, I didn't find many tutorials that were easy to follow. I made this tutorial for those that might be having a little difficulty. The braiding might seem a little hard to follow at first, but it gets much easier after the first step (it's been a while since I've tied one!).

How To: G1 Lanyard Fix - Put A Lanyard Strap On Your T-Mobile Phone The G1 phone does NOT have a lanyard hole. I need one because I walk around San Francisco a lot and it's easy to drop the phone. So as typical, I looked for a solution. I found a way to attach a lanyard, through the phone's speaker grill. Take a look. Sidenote: I don't know about anyone else, but to me the G1 is slippery as heck. One needs a lanyard on it, whether it's clipped to your belt or you are using it. If you have a spare camera strap, you can use that on the phone. So this is a low cost solution.

How To Make A Paracord Bracelet or Lanyard This is my shortened version of how to make a survival bracelet with paracord. I did so many takes on this video, I had to settle for the best one. I forgot to mention that this knot is called the "cobra" knot. You can also do a "king cobra" knot by tying the cobra knot again on top of an already finished cobra knot (this makes a bracelet of the same thickness of the ones I show at the beginning of the video). Also, I did the duo tone (OD green and black) by simply fusing two different colors together on my knot rope. You can do this by just melting the ends and then pushing the ends together quickly before they solidify. Hope this makes some kind of sense and helps if you are trying to learn how to do it!
Paracord Knife Lanyards When I have free time or just want to add a little something extra to the look of a knife I make a lanyard out of paracord. For most of my knives I use 550 paracord but when the lanyard hole is smaller I use 450 paracord. I like black and foliage green the most but there is always that knife that looks great with something different. The designs that I use are Square stitch(Cobra), Spiral(staircase), Chris Reeve style lanyard. Enjoy the video.

Two-Bight Turk's-Head Paracord Lanyard More knotty stuff on my blog: This video tutorial will show how to tie a Two-Bight Turk's-Head lanyard using about 5.5 feet of 550 paracord. The Turk's Head part of the knot is described in 'The Ashley Book of Knots', knot #595. I added the lanyard knot and loop on the end to make it useful as a lanyard. The actual time it took me to make the lanyard, from start to finish, was under 20 minutes, but I edited the video down to 10 minutes. The time consuming parts are making additional passes and then tightening up and working the slack out of the knot. Knot responsibly. A great site to visit, for those interested in knot work, is Knot Heads World Wide Another to learn from is Animated Knots by Grog *The AudioSwap music that is playing with the video is 'Amy' by Thinkstandard.
Balisong Lanyard This is the way I EDC my balisongs. This method allows you to carry without a sheath or a pocket clip. It's essentially just a paracord loop that goes around a belt or belt loop that secures the bali to your pants and holds it upright in the pocket. It works for me, maybe it will work for you. Please check you state laws to be sure balisong carry is legal in your local.
