I want you to know a company called Shieldon
Do you know a outdoor equipment company called Shieldon?
Shieldon is a manufacturer based in Colorado, the USA, that sells convenient and unique miscellaneous goods suitable for outdoor activities and travel.
In the 30 years since its opening, we have sold more than 500 types of products all over the world.
In particular, the key chains and LEDs sold by Shieldon are significantly cost-effective.
In Canada, where I live, it is very popular with campers and many people.
Two Recommended Items from Shieldon
Shieldon sells many unique items.
Among them, I would like to introduce two of the ones that I use and especially like.
The first is a 1-yen coin-sized LED marker called LED ZIPPER PULL.
The other is FIGURE 9 CARABINER, a carabiner that allows you to apply tension to the paracord easily.
We will approach these two charms.
LED ZIPPER PULL
Ultra-small LED light. To switch the light on / off, use the knob on the back.
The LED zipper pull is an ultra-compact battery-powered LED marker.
Even though it is an LED, it does not have enough light to illuminate the surroundings, and it is used as a mark to inform the surroundings of the mounting position.
LED zipper pulls have many uses, but I mainly use them for two purposes.
1. Marks such as backpacks
The LED zipper pull makes the zip handle larger, making it easier to open and close.
As the name suggests, the LED zipper pull can be attached to the handle of the zipper.
Attaching it to your backpack improves visibility from behind, even when walking on dark roads.
Since it is easier for bicycle and car drivers to find it, the risk of contact accidents is significantly reduced.
You can also instantly find the backpack zipper, so you can quickly open your backpack even in the dark.
2. Marks for pegs and guy lines
I’m sure you’ve once stumbled upon a peg or guy line (the cord that supports your tent).
Since I started installing LED zipper pulls, it has become easier to find pegs and the like even at night, and I no longer trip over.
It is attached with a plus knot.
If you want to attach it to the guy line, you can fix it in any position by connecting it with a prusik knot method.
The middle process of the plastic knot. Wrap the light around the paracord again to complete.
The Prusik knot can be easily attached by simply wrapping it twice, just like attaching a mobile phone strap.
FIGURE 9 CARABINER
The procedure for passing the paracord is drawn on the carabiner body.
Figure 9 Carabiner is a carabiner for quickly fixing the paracord.
With this product, you can easily apply muscular tension to tarps and tents.
It’s only two steps to use.
Step 1. Make a ring on the paracord
This time I made a ring with a knot called Evans knot.
Create a ring on one side of the paracord in advance.
Hook this ring on the peg.
Step 2. Fix the paracord to the figure 9 carabiner attached to the tarp.
The carabiner connects to the tent or tarp, and the code on the right of the image connects to the peg.
Anyone can easily use it by simply passing the paracord according to the procedure drawn on the carabiner body.
In addition, since there is no knot when fixing the paracord, it takes less time to untie and can be removed in less time.
It’s simple to use, so it’s nice to apply it to various things depending on your ideas.
