Using a defensive lanyard

Jim Johnson explains and demonstrates how a lanyard can turn two common items (keys and a flashlight) into potent defensive tools to help you overcome and escape an attacker.

Bob, our martial arts practice dummy, was on the receiving end of hundreds of hits from these lanyards at our booth at the United States Concealed Carry Expo in Fort Worth April 7-9. Hundreds of visitors to our booth took one of these lanyards home. If you’re interested in adding one of our 550 Para cord lanyards to your every-day carry, let us know through the contact section of our home page or by emailing
