Ringbolt Hitching Key Ring

Ringbolt Hitching Key Ring
My nephew wanted a large key ring for his motorboat.  He liked this.
I started with 6' of 550 paracord.  I left 6" tag end of cord at the beginning and began single strand ringbolt hitching around a 1 1/2" OD steel ring.  Tied the 2 ends using a diamond knot relative.   Had about 4" of cord left over .

Cor - lovely result.  
It's definitely not for nothing when knots can be tied with an outcome so wonderful.

looks smashing  

Lovely and amazing.    

fab looks just wonderful thank you

Thanks for the kind words everone

I prefer this alternate ending.   I took the two ends and tied them into a 4 bight, 3 lead Turks Head Knot. Saw the idea in rein endings in Bruce Grants "How to make Cowboy Horse Gear".

The Turks Head knot doubles nicely.


You can find a tutorial for ringbolt hitching at  I can post the tutorial here if anyone would rather stay on site.
