Picture of Paracord Quick Deploy Bracelet
bracelet extended.jpg
This bracelet carries 10' of paracord and a stainless steel Fish Bone Gear Tie. It's simple to weave and even easier to deploy. 

Make sure to check out the Paracord Contest

Caution: Never wear a bracelet around machinery or any situation where it could be caught or hung up. Severe injure may occur.  

Step 1: Make 3 loops

Picture of Make 3 loops
Take 10' of cord and lay out three loops. The lengths in the picture are 9" long. They will be shortened later.

Take the long end and begin wrapping it around the two lower loops. You'll do a zig zag weave in between them.

Great guide, made learning the weave very easy. I changed it a little from a bracelet to a lanyard for my knife.

Liked it so much, and had a couple Piranha sitting around that I made one for myself. Thanks for the simple instructable!

is there a survival use for the fishbone or is it just the clasp?

Hi where can I find the fish bone if I can't make it

Awesome. Now I have a use for my fish bone's rather than just letting them sit in a drawer. :)

Have you thought about wrapping the remaining standing end (that you cut off at the end) around the rest of the fish bone? I hate being left with small pieces of paracord.

This is an awesome idea! Must try

Fantastic! So happy to see the survival bracelet come to life!!! Now for a paracord & multiple Fish Bone belt!

Have you started mass production yet? If so please post a link so I may purchase one (or a few) as well as share it with friends/family. Living in WI we do lots of camping and these would come in handy!!

The Fishbone's are at http://www.fishbonefish.com/

Yup. Completely aware of the Fish Bones being available for purchase. I was referring to premade bracelets and belts using two or more Fish Bones, being available for purchase online or in select stores and was directing my question at the creator of this fine 'ible as we had talked about putting the Fish Bones on bracelets and such about a year ago (?) when the Fish Bone 'ible was originally posted (I'm kind of a big fan of his work *grin*).

You make me blush=). They're not for sale as bracelets yet but it's in the works. A belt! I got to get to work on that.

Excellent piece. This is a must for the backpack. Seems to be the easiest and most functional quick release idea, and great for just a storage method. A shackle hook would also work well for the buckle.
