Step 7: Trim the excess cord and melt the ends

You can now use your scissors to trim off the extra cord close to the last knot that you tied. I trim one at a time and use my lighter to quickly melt the end I cut. Wait a second for the melted cord to cool just a bit and then use my thumb to press the melted end onto the surrounding cord so it hardens as it attaches. You must be careful with this step. The melted cord is extremely hot, and it's possible to get burned, so you might also try using a soldering iron or wood burning tool for the melting step if you wish. Or even use something like a butter knife, the side of your lighter, or the knurled section of a tool to flatten out the melted end of the cord to finish it.

An alternative to melting the ends, is to tuck/pull the ends under the last couple of knots (I have used hemostats to do this on the inside of the bracelet) then trim them to finish. It does work, and is just barely noticeable as the cords add a slight bulge at that end of the bracelet.

<p>Great job,&nbsp; you inspired me to make one of my own. I didn't have a snap buckle though, so I modified mine.</p>
I love the loop, how did you do it? <br>
&nbsp;This looks great - do you have an instructable on how you did it? I can't work it out from the photos.
OK, I don't think I need to post a full instructable for my bracelet because I just combined two posted instructables. But I will tell you what I did.<br /> Measure your paracord according to&nbsp;stormdraines version, but add 1 foot. Tie the knot&nbsp;that is&nbsp;in this version. <a href="http://www.instructables.com/id/In_and_out_Knot_and_loop_Bracelet/" rel="nofollow">http://www.instructables.com/id/In_and_out_Knot_and_loop_Bracelet/</a><br /> So I started it like kcardwel's but instead of tieing it to furniture and using a seperate piece of cord, I braided it like stormdraine. The end part was a little tricky. I braided it to the end until there was only enough room to fit the two loose ends of cord through the loop. I had one slightly longer end so I used that one to form the loop for the&nbsp; big knot, I think I tied a knot so the loop was in place. I then loosely wrapped the ends around the loop 3 times and then fed the cord through those loops (like a noose). I then pulled them tight and ran them down&nbsp;under the braids&nbsp;of the bracelet.&nbsp;&nbsp;<br /> Hope this helps :)<br /> <br />
Wow that bracelet looks awesome u should make an instructable for that if you haven't already tell me when you do.<br /> &nbsp; <br />
&nbsp;Thanks for the great Instructable! I've been looking for a new collar for my Mastiff, Zeke, for a while now and thought the King Cobra stitch would look pretty good. I used 45' of Bright Red (wife's idea) 550 Paracord and a 3/4&quot; side release buckle, both from Supply Captain (thanks for the link). I also re-appropriated a &quot;D&quot; ring from an old collar so I could hook a leash to him for walks. Using some extra 550, I made a few Chain Sinnet&nbsp;bracelets&nbsp;based on the instructions from your blog. Great stuff, thanks for posting.&nbsp;
