I've been making these for my stuff, and I was just wondering if anybody would be interested in them?

Thanks for looking!

They sure work great on a gun case or a backpack!

Great idea Jeff, with backpack zippers, they are the only way to go.

Thanks guys!

Rob,
I can do them in any color of cord that I have on the shelf. A single color is the easiest way to do the zipper pulls, but it's hard to get them to an exact length every time. I'm going to make up some in assorted colors and 2 lengths: shorter and longer. laugh The longer ones work best on gun cases and packs, and the shorter ones work best on jackets and other clothing items.
I'm running low on a few colors right now, but I usually have:

coyoye brown
coyote tan
ACU digital
desert camo
woodland camo
OD green
Foliage green
black
red
blue
Neon orange
white

Methinks these would be real handy if you removed the "stock" metal zipper pull to elimate the slight noise when two click together. Does paracord fit through the little hole left when/if you remove the metal zipper pull?

Sorry I hadn't seen your post before now! blush

I've been making some zipper pulls with the strands removed from the center of the paracord. That makes them a lot smaller in diameter, and they've worked on all of the zippers I've tried so far. thumbup1
