I made a fence jumper out of leather years ago. My fence jumper is a cord with clips that can be used to pull a section of fence down to get over to the other side (hopefully without ripping my pants).
I fenced in a couple acres so the dogs can run about. Well anyway – I find myself constantly going over the fence. I also find while hiking the need to cross fences. Here in Michigan - some of the state lands are old farms with fences still in place. I also remember getting into a little trouble for ripping my pants on my grandparents farm.
I decided to make a fence jumper out of paracord using the Blaze Bar Knot.
The paracord adds the additional benefits of other uses in field.
I incorporated my fence jumper onto a hiking stick with hardware.
I believe you should always get permission to enter someone’s property. If you are fence jumping you probably going onto someone’s property – ask first.
Step 1: Gather Items
I took a piece of cord out to the fence to determine what a good length would be. I came up with an overall length of 36 inches
I started with 100 feet of 5/32 diameter olive color 550 paracord – I ended up using 50 feet. This amount will vary with how tight the knots are.
3 – Metal Binder ring (aka book rings) - approximately 1 inch in diameter = note: not all rings are made the same. I purchase some from the dollar store and they would open up with use. I might suggest good quality karabiner clips
2 - ¾ inch screws
1 - mounting bracket - 3 inches long uses two screws to mount
2 – Metal snap hook 3 inches with a swivel ring.
Stick or Cane – I used a 57 inch walking stick – approximately 1 ½ diameter
2 inch welded ring
Optional Assembly items
Hook or peg
Lighter to seal paracord ends
Mini bungee cord
Just another note: I made a metal loom to make mine (future instructables).
