When the military needs small cord to help secure their gear, they use this 3/32" Tether Cord. This U.S. made tether cord is also called "Sensitive Item Securing System". It's used throughout the military to secure things like strobe lights, compasses and knives to the operator.

The tether cord works well for making lanyards and such. Now we've found a new use for making the ties for face masks. I also add a cord lock for quick adjustment of the mask.
I'm always excited when my CountyComm packages arrive. They are my source for emergency preparedness treats which I distribute to my friends and family.
