Throughout this tutorial I will demonstrate how to make a "Gator Quick Release ParaVival Bracelet". ParaVival is my new gear company, and it's also short for paracord-survival. The Gator bracelet comes with up to 15 feet of paracord and can completely unraveled in under 20 seconds, perfect for any emergency or survival situation.
Also find the tutorial and other paracord supplies like kits and cord here: http://www.paravival.com/how-tos/bracelets/gator-bracelet

Check out a video of the Gator unraveling below:
Step 1: What You'll Need
- 15 ft. of paracord
- Tape measure
- Metal Shackle
- Jig. (Optional)
-We use a small piece of wood about 3' x 1'. Plywood works great for this. We simply screw an eyehook into it so we can attach the shackle to it while working. You can see the eye hook at the top of the picture below. Again, this is optional. You can do this by simply holding it it your hands.
Step 2: Step 1: Measuring Your Wrist
2. With a marker, make a line across the cord like shown in part 2 of the diagram.
3. I’ve darkened the lines in Photoshop so you can see a better example here in part 3 of the diagram.
4. Now lay your cord out straight on a table and measure from line to line.
