Nite Ize 550 Paracord - 50 ft (PC550-04-50)
Originally used in the suspension lines of U.S. parachutes during World War II, paracord (or parachute cord) is a lightweight, semi-elastic, strong, weather-resistant quality rope that can be used for just about anything. Nite Ize's paracord is great for bundling small loads, rucksacks, harnesses, dummy cords, and many other applications and has been tested for 550 pound break strength to ensure that the line will not snap when put under extra load. Carry some in your car and camping gear so you'll always have it when you need it.Features and Specifications:
WARNING: This product is NOT designed to hold your body weight or to lift heavy objects overhead. Do not use this product for climbing, repelling, lifting heavy objects or other situations where personal safety or valuable property can be endangered. The working load and weight rating are based on static tests and the limits shown should never be exceeded. Shock conditions (swing, stress, jerk) can reduce working loads by more than 33%. Never stand in line with rope under tension; such rope, especially nylon rope, can recoil (snap back). Never use this product to secure large flat surfaces or objects. All ropes should be replaced if signs of wear, such as broken fibers, are apparent. Knots reduce the strength of the rope by more than 50%-if you must make a loop, splicing is preferable. Misuse can result in serious injury or death.
