I know Swivels are old. I know it’s been done 100 times over. I admit I thought about using swivels from one of the old archaic threads from old time’s past. This thread was originally made to have people recreate a video I made, where I used a swivel, and didn’t tell anyone. It was figured out very quick, so I changed it to swivel discussion. So if you’re just poking in for the first time, save the history lesson, because people coming in here stating it’s old left and right, is more redundant than this thread. So please, save yourself the time and don’t bother stating it’s been done before. We ALL know that.
Ok guys, I came through for ya and made a pictorial for the EASIEST method to do this.
Shoulda made this a long time ago for ya guys… but I let ya have at it ;]
NOTE: DO NOT DO THIS METHOD UNLESS YOU HAVE SIZE 12 SWIVELS FROM WALMART. SIZE 12. WALMART. $1.26 FOR A PACK OF 12. AGAIN, SIZE 12. LOOK AT MY SWIVEL COMPARE TO CONFIRM IT’S THE SAME SWIVEL.
Set up a piece of string like you normally would and add a swivel ;D
Put the string on your finger and push the swivel about 1 cm away from your finger ;D
Tie a simple knot right by that swivel. So it is about 1 cm away from your finger ;D
(if you need to make the knot bigger, so it doesn’t go through the swivel, figure it out)
Tie ANOTHER knot right by the first knot!! :o The closer the better, but leave a little tiny bit of room. Ideally .5 cm or so.
Thread the string through the other end of the swivel :o
Ask permission to get some scissors, and cut the segment of string inbetween the two knots. :o
Grab your parents lighter without them noticing (jk ask or have them do it), and burn the frayed ends into the knots.
You’re done doooood. Go give it a whirl 8)
