Centreville, VA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 07/19/2012 -- A parachute cord, better known as paracord, was originally used in the suspension lines of the United States parachutes during World War II, while also doubling as a general purpose utility cord used by military personnel as well as civilians. Today, 550 cord is used in a variety of other products. Survival bracelets have been created out of paracord and used for hundreds of situations and purposes, such as for securing cargo or equipment, lashing poles, fixing broken belts, doing water rescues and making a tourniquet.
