During i build my house, there was something i had really missed. So i thought about creating a hammer holder by myself. This tool is really helpfull and it is a good alternative to the conventional hammer holders.

Step 1: Materials and Tools

Materials:

  • Paracord 550 type III / color: electric blue / 173 cm ≈ 68 inches
  • Paracord 550 type III / color: black / 173 cm ≈ 68 inches

Tools:

  • pliers
  • paracord needle
  • scissors

Step 2: A Four Strand Round Braid

We are starting with a four strand round braid. Find at first the middle of both strands and start the braiding. Stop braiding when you reached your desired length.

Step 3: A Four Strand Round Braid Loop

To make a loop use one end of the strands and pull it through the beginning end of a round braid. The diameter of the loop should be large enough for a hammer. Then position all the strands as shown in the picture. This will helps to build a good structure for the wall knot.

This technique i learned from Paracordist Creations LLC of www.paracordist.com.

Here you can find his YouTube video:

Step 4: The Wall Knot

A description of this knot can be found very quickly in the internet:

Step 5: A Four Strand Flat Braid

Stop braiding when you reached the length of 14 cm ≈ 6 inches or when you reached your desired length.

Step 6: Making a Loop and Preparing the Strands for the Manrope Knot

Step 7: The Manrope Knot (The Wall Knot)

See step 4

Step 8: The Manrope Knot (The Square Knot / Box Knot)

A description of this knot can be found very quickly in the internet:

The square knot / box knot

Step 9: The Manrope Knot (Knotting)

To build this knot, we must to double all strands. This knot is tied counterclockwise.

This technique i learned from Paracordist Creations LLC of www.paracordist.com.

Step 10: Tightening the Knot

Use a pliers to tie the knot very tight.

Step 11: Cut and Shape

Grab an turn with a pliers one strand so tight as you can and cut it off, so close as you can.
Repeat this process until you cut all strands off. Knock with a hammer on the knot, during this process rotate the knot.The cutting ends must be not visible. If the cutting ends are still visible, bring them into the knot with the paracord needle. Finally then shape the knot.

You can see the technique at minute (21:55).

Step 12: The Finished Product

Step 13: Upgrade #1

You can upgrade the paracord hammer holder with a carabiner. For example you can use this for keys.

Step 14: Upgrade #2

With this upgrade you can keep the paracord hammer holder in place on your belt.

I am used a hollow paracord 550 type III (color: black / 51 cm ≈ 20 inches) for this upgrade.

Finally you can use a cord stopper to fix both lose ends.

Step 15: Upgrade #3

With this upgrade you can keep the hammer in place, in your paracord hammer holder.

Finally you can use a cord stopper to fix both lose ends.

<p>Great idea</p>
<p>Thank you buck2217 :)</p>
<p>Can you design one so I don't keep losing my steel rules though!! :-)</p>
<p>Beautiful Instructable! The pictures are great. Well done and congratulations.</p>
<p>Thank you cammers for a great comment and congratulations.</p>
<p>Great idea! I would just like to point out that step 13 should say carabiner not carbine. Without this correction, it says you could upgrade it with a small rifle. Otherwise, it's fine.</p>
<p>Thanks for the hint, i have corrected it.</p>
<p>This is terrible I hate it. (Just kidding it's great, it just beat me in a contest.)</p>

<p>Thank you peppypickle for a great comment!</p>
<p>Great 'ible AJ but I have a question..</p><p>What is that style of hammer designed for??</p><p>I have a small one of the same design.. I use it mostly for glass work setting glassier points.. It's just the right size &amp; weight.</p><p>Any ideas on the original design intent??</p><p>Thanks much...FN...</p>
<p>Thank you FN64! Honestly, i use the paracord hammer holder for hammer up to 2 kg. The hammer on the picture is a peen hammer. This hammer was a gift from my grandpa and this has been my first hammer. I use these all the time for small works, actually for small nails. Of course i also use other hammer. This is my favorite because it is very light and practical.</p>
Love Paracord. Very detailed instructions, this got my vote especially when I saw the upgrades. When I first looked at the project, I thought, needs a carabiner cause I don't wear a belt. The second upgrade would work too using an old belt or a paracord belt, then I wouldn't have to use my nail belt with all the pockets when I just need the hammer holder. Thanks for taking the time with all the pictures.
<p>Thank you SpringRain59! Honestly, i have presented to you only my personal upgrades. Other upgrades i leave your imagination. Find the best upgrade for you ;)</p>
<p>Great Instructable! This should also be relabeled as a tutorial on how to write an Instructable. Great directions, outstanding photos and links to the source material. Good job!</p>
<p>Thank you Johnkaye for the positive comment! </p>
<p>Very nice work!</p>
<p>Thank you Crucio! I hope this instructable helps.</p>
<p>I love Instructables like this. A (relatively) straightforward guide to making something genuinely useful that also helps teach/practice knotting skills. </p><p>Thanks, or as we say in the Midlands of England, ta! :)</p>
<p>Thank you nliwilson, or as we say in German, danke! :)</p>
