The TiP solves the age-old knife/bead/lanyard problem; what to do with the end of your lanyard once you've secured your bead on there? Engineering, that's how. This small titanium bead features a closing screw that pushes against the lanyard cord, locking it to the interior of the pearl. This creates a clean look and allows you to tie lanyards shorter so they aren't as obtrusive and more efficiently as all it takes is a Torx screw to secure. The bead and the locking system are designed for a 5/32-inch lanyard of around 4 mm (550 paracord) and it measures 12 mm wide by 14 mm long.
