Introduction: Paracord Comfort Handle

I was inspired to make this one day while I was carrying my archery target. I picked it up, and after walking with it for about 20 feet, I set it down, and noticed that there were some abrasion marks on my hands. The terrible handle on the bag was starting to cut into my hand. So i got out my paracord and got to it! Really, this could be applied to any handle, say on a backpack or laptop case.

Step 1: Materials

1. 10-15 feet of paracord depending on the size of the handle
2. A pair of siscors
3. A lighter
4. A measuring tape
5. 1 uncomfortable handle

Step 2: The Starting Braid

Find the center of the paracord, and loop it around the instde of the handle.Tie a knot to keep it in place

Step 3:

Take one strand and cross it over like so.

Step 4:

Take the other strand and thread it under the first.

Step 5:

Take the second strand and put it through the first loop.

Step 6:

Pull tight and repeat on the opposite side.

Step 7:

Continue with the knots. It should be looking like this.

Step 8:

Now that you have your finished comfort handle, you can carry your object without the risk of pain! Happy shooting! Or whatever your using the handle for.

This is a great Instructable!

Especially with knitting/paracord/knot tying projects I find that the best thing to do is include a video that shows you going through the motions of tying a specific know. Having said that, I did find the instructions clear.

Cheers,

Laura
