Survival Bracelet: Weave

There are many schemes like weaving a bracelet. Each of them has its pros and cons, the main requirement is one – the rope should easily unravel for a few seconds. In any pattern of weaving, the survival bracelet should sit comfortably on the arm and have a flat shape.

How to make a bracelet for survival yourself? Follow the instructions:

  1. The ends of the rope must be cauterized with fire to prevent it from spreading.
  2. Four loops are made in the slotted fastener.
  3. From the long part of the paracord you need to make a loop, stretching it through the first four.
  4. It stretches about 5 cm, and tightens from right to left.
  5. Four loops should be slightly loosened, then, using tweezers, pull out three more loops between each of them, while leaving the fourth one laterally.
  6. Hinges need to be deployed so that their left parts are ahead.
  7. The cord is threaded through four loops, as in point 3.
  8. To complete the first row you need to tighten the loop from right to left. You can not tighten them too tightly, twist, it can ruin the appearance.
  9. Steps 3,4,5 should be repeated to achieve the required length of the bracelet.
  10. Upon reaching the desired length you need to pull the lead cord through the last row. Its end should be on the right. Between the loops you need to make gaps, and around the back side of the fastener – three more loops.
  11. Finish weaving need, stretching the end of the rope through the loop, then set on or tie a knot. The latter option is more convenient when unleashing.

To weave a bracelet, you need to untie the knot, remove the clasps and pull the end of the paracord out of the last four loops. If you pull the end, the bracelet will dissolve.

 

How to make a bracelet for survival
To weave a bracelet not only for the sake of a lace, you can expand its functionality, and weave into it, for example, fishing gear: fishing line, a few hooks, sinkers. Weaving stages:

 

  1. Paracord folds in half, attached to the clasp.
  2. 3-5 cm of internal fibers should be removed from one end of the cord.
  3. The vacated space inside the cord is filled with weights, 2-3 pieces are enough.
  4. The cut ends are joined together with glue, the protruding filaments are singed with a cigarette lighter.

Another option is possible: to load the sinkers with tape or tape to the cord, so as not to violate its integrity. But at the same time the appearance of the bracelet will suffer.

Fishing hooks are simply glued to the tape, then wrapped around the bracelet.

  1. The necessary length of the paracord is measured, fixed with a clasp.
  2. The line is wound around the paracord of the required length. You can also push it inside the cord, if it is not too thick. Usually enough 6 meters of fishing line.
  3. Further, around these two threads begins the main weaving, numerous illustrative examples of which can be found on the Internet.
