    I made a simple pry bar from a 6mm wrench. The "eye" is used to attach it to the rest. I made it this summer, carried it since and needed it ONCE... So I'm glad I didn't spend money on something "professional"..

    A bit of heat shrink tube to protect my pocket from the "sharp" corners/edge... Works like a charm and fits like kydex!

    what kind of tools did you use? ive attempted to make my own before with an angle grinder and that made it really easy, although making a cool design has been difficult lol.

    A file and a table grinder. Lol it's a bit tough considering the wheel is thick.


    Dull edge

    i wasn't a fan of the button clips on the back of my one bag so i made a belt clip thing for it.
    I have pictures of the template I made as well as the final product, its functional so thats good enough for me lol.

    So I've done my very first paracord wrap on my new Maxpedition Mongo.
    I was surprised that it has a grab handle. As some reviews I've seen, didn't have a handle. Anyway the handle isn't very comfortable. Not that I use it much. So I decided to wrap in paracord. I figured if I'm going to wrap I may as well make it usable as well.
    It has approx 10 meters in length
    And the best part is its quick deploy design. I can undo in like 10 seconds
    Bugger :(
