      David,

      That cord is attached to parachutes by being sewed to the canopy. Any
      knots that are tied reduce the strength of the cord. If you are
      lighter than I am this might work for you. I would try to hang close
      to the ground though. Also keep a close eye out for any abrasion from
      tree bark. You won't know if it will work for you unless you try it.
      Good luck with your testing.
