The Fishing Hack…….Turning Phone Cord Into A Handy Lanyard
While for the most part coiled phone cords are all but a thing of the past, it’s likely that you have a few stashed away somewhere, “just in case.” Or what about that old coiled cell phone car charger that you saved even though you upgraded to a new phone and the cord no longer fits? Well these make great lanyards and gear keepers. Cut the ends off the cord, double the wire over on itself, wrap some electrical tape around the doubled section leaving a small loop on the end and you’re good to go. For a more secure connection you can wrap thread over the doubled section and finish with epoxy. These cords can be attached to pliers, cameras, rods and just about anything that you want to prevent from being lost at sea.
