  1. Just a thought, if you wrap the paracord around the outside of the tin you could free up some space inside, add a few extra feet to the total length and add some padding to the tin.

    John McCann has a "how to" on his website (survival resources) you might even be able to slide the duck tape between the tin and the cord.
