Awesome idea, and just like the survival bracelets if you ever came into a survival situation you have a great length of paracord on hand right there in your truck! (I had a thin blue line survival bracelet and I can't find it now.. Need to replace with a red line) I wish I had the patience to do that! :thumbsup: I'm pretty darn sure you'll have some buyers for sure!

That's thinking outside the box, and they look awesome.

By trade a PR in the Navy, Aircrew Survival Equipmentman, also known as a Parachute Rigger, and I kick myself to this day for not grabbing a roll of 550 cord when I retired, that shit is golden.

Air horn pulls for semi trucks. Trust me. It's what I do all day long.

Not to take away from a local member creating paracord products, but I would check out paracordist. He makes some cool stuff. I got one of his key fobs with the stainless steel ball in the monkeys fist.

Not sure if you have the loop cord for the air horn or the straight pull down.

Nice! You've got me thinking for both the Envoy and the Silverado. For something you haven't made one for before I assume you need the length, width and thickness, I'll also assume the Voy's pulls are the same size as the TB's but the Siverado's could be a little different.

As this thread is evolving into a commercial, I'm going to move it into the appropriate (Vendor) forum and out of the technical section. GMTN encourages products that benefit members, and doesn't charge any silly fees like the OS. Posting pics of installed products showing how they enhance the vehicle's appearance, is more appropriate for the Appearance forum. And the OP can link to their vendor thread in their signature. All highly encouraged - carry on!

PS: I'd get a couple myself but I'd only get them filthy with mud and dust. :wink: :frown:

Go with a camo style and you'll only make them look better :smile:

Now my :frown: The Envoy uses a different style than the TB. I've got the fold up solid handles instead of straps.

Since there isn't one at the drivers door, I never really paid attention to what the Voy had in that department.

i have a few diffrent camo styles i will try tonight at work, how do the handles on the voy attach i.e. what does the hole to the roof look like?

oh PS i just ordered a TON of GLOW IN THE DARK WHITE cord!!!!!! :raspberry:

looks like i will need to redo my set now :undecided:

Such a tease :tongue: lol. I have always wondered why there isnt a oh S%#T handle on the drivers side. I'm sure I'll hit you up once things get going with the landscape business. Paracord is great! my M4 is actually hanging from the knob of my dresser drawer by paracord.

They are solid U shaped. You probably have to wrap it right on it instead of sliding it on with the hinge and 90 degree turns to make the U. Not impossible but I'd have to do it myself. Silverado uses the same style handle.

I'll grab a pic when it gets light out.

Great Idea man! Might have to get some black and white ones eventually. All I can think is this guy braiding all these paracords together and then this pops into my head.
