I'm sorry. This is supposed tobe like a life hack sorta thing, but all I could so was laugh because now I know how to make these. Remeber the Spongebob episode when he is with the ghost captain and he's playong witht he string. My favorite episode.
Here is a unique way of tying a monkeys fist knot with a single strand of paracord that results in four supportive strands. It's awesome for heavy steel or lead ball inserts of larger weight and/or diameter due to the increased security. With each of the four strands bearing equal load, the capacity is over 2,000 lbs tensile strength http://youtu.be/Mw-Yw0ZXQSo "Paracordist How To Tie a Monkeys Fist Knot Supported by 4 Strands"
