Title: Cord lock

Abstract: The device is a cord lock having an outer arm (10) and an inner arm (11) integrally connected by a hinging member (12). The device is constructed of resilient material, such that outer arm (10) and inner arm (11) will flex into slidable contact with each other when pressure is applied to their sides, and will flex back, away from each other, when the pressure is released. An outer arm opening (13) and inner arm opening (14) are located through the free ends of outer arm (10) and inner arm (11) respectively. To engage the device, outer arm (10) and inner arm (11) are urged together until outer arm opening (13) and inner arm opening (14) are in line with each other, and a cord is then threaded through the openings. The urging-together pressure is then released, causing outer arm (10) and inner arm (11) to slide back to a position wherein the cord is pinched between outer arm opening (13) and inner arm opening (14), and is prevented from moving.
