Precautions for using Paracord
1. Check the rope before use
The rope with scars or kinks may break during use, so it must be checked before use, and if there is kinks, it must be restored.
2. Doesn't stain the rope
Dirt is the main reason for the deterioration of the Paracord, and it also deteriorates its strength. In the wild, do not place the rope directly on the ground, and be careful not to allow oil stains to adhere to the rope. In addition, be sure to dispose of the dirt on the rope after use.
3. Don't step on the rope
The Paracord is often scarred or deteriorated due to being trampled on. In addition, if small stones etc. run into the Paracord, there is a risk of breaking when carrying a weight. Especially in the mountains in winter, if the cleats on the shoes are stepped on, they can no longer be used. When rock climbing, you often step on the climbing rope unknowingly, so please pay more attention to this.
4. Keep the rope away from sharp objects
When the Paracord touches sharp objects such as rock edges and corners and bears a heavier burden, the risk of Paracord breakage is increased. At present, safety guidelines have been formulated for climbing ropes. In this situation, the use of climbing ropes or ropes is absolutely prohibited. It is really indispensable and needs to be protected with towels, etc., to avoid direct contact with sharp objects.
5. Don't suddenly add to the Paracord
Doing so will cause scars to the rope. Even if it is sometimes not visible on the surface, the inside may have been broken. Therefore, be careful not to let the Paracord bear too much load.
6. Don't borrow the Paracord
There is nothing more dangerous than a rope that has not been used under what circumstances. Because if you use a Paracord that seems to have withstood a sudden weight without knowing it, then the rope may be cracked. Therefore, absolutely avoid borrowing the used rope from others, or lending your own Paracord to others.
7. Do not use such ropes
Ropes can be said to be consumables, not that they can be used for life after buying one. If a scarred rope is used, there will be an accident one day. It must be checked frequently, and a new Paracord should be replaced immediately after the scar is found. In addition to the rope that has scratches, cuts or abrasions should be replaced immediately, the rope that has been overused for more than two years must also be replaced. Even if there are no obvious scars, it is quite old.
