I laced mine onto my one boot as a toggle. I pull it tight and then tie off, works better to me then just laces on their own. Will have to order another in the magnesium to balance out the boots!
I’ve bought several of these and they work great. I edc one of these on a homemade firecord bracelet as a backup to my zippo. However, it does take considerable effort to thread 550 cord through it. I found the only way was to melt the ends of the paracord, cut them at an angle, and kind of twist the cordage through. Slightly larger holes would be an improvement. Also magnesium toggles would be great
I picked some of these to try out with various paracord projects. Unfortunately the holes are just a little too narrow to use with 550 paracord; the cord simply won't fit. However, they're the perfect size to work with 325 paracord. Since I replaced my bootlaces with 325, I wove one of these into my right hiking boot -- not all that accessible, but in an emergency I can certainly be confident that I'll have one on my person.
I also wove one of these into the lanyard on my belt knife. Maybe not the most practical thing, but for the weight it's worth carrying one or two on your body somewhere. They're a neat idea and might just be a lifesaver one day.
Basically this saved me the hassle of making them myself which is a real pain to do!
I grabbed a few of these to use as toggles while making paracord bracelets. Unfortunately, they are exactly as described and the paracord I had (not standard, it included a jute cord and fishing line) was too large to make it through the holes. After measuring, I can confirm that the holes are exactly .165 inches. My attempts to drill them to .19 lead to the toggles breaking in two. I'll come up with some other uses for the other ones I've purchased.
Hopefully Ron will come up with some bigger versions of these toggles in the future. But I have to give this one 5 stars because it was exactly what was described and I've already used the broken one to start a fire! :)
A little small at first. Once you figure out the best grip for you then it works great. Not easy to thread but not that difficult either.I will buy this again.
These are TERRIFIC!!
These firesteel's deliver 110% of their claim!
These items are by nature on the small side so they need care to use and might not be the best if your hands are not working well due to cold or injury. That said they are a great little (literally) bit of insurance. I have them installed on the strings of my backpacks and my winter coat and light wight shirt jack. They are a good backup plan for fire starting if my lighter does not work.
For the price they can not be beat and like insurance are a comfort to have in hopes that I do not need them. I also have a Gob Spark that is awesome and I recommend highly.
wow the best! small but mighty
