The Bag can be adjusted by moving a knot on the 60 inch cord. If you wish to cut off the end after you are happy with the length, you will need to melt the end to prevent fraying. 1. Must be done by a responsible adult. 2. When adjusting the length, include the knot - it uses about 1 - 1 1/2 inches of the length. 3.Hold the cut end away from other fabric & flammables this includes you fingers briefly over a candle flame for less thatn a second. I do this close to a running faucet or bowl of water. 4. For my own bag for personnal use, I don't cut off the end since I like to have the flexibilty of length.
