This is a cool alternative to the bulky plastic buckles on all paracord bracelets I've seen, both online and in person. I used wire cutters to remove existing buckles from my bracelet (careful NOT to shear cord) and replaced it with the cool black, stainless-steel, low profile s-biner from Nite-Ize, I prefer the stainless steel but I also use the plastic s-biner. If starting a new project use the s-biner in place of the buckle and continue with your favorite braid technique. I think that in a true "survival" situation the stainless steel option may prove more useful than the plastic buckle. I will leave that up to the readers to offer their own views but I hope you agree. You may need a little help at first to put it on but I never take my bracelet off so it's not an issue for me. You can always ask your girlfriend to help you and make her a bracelet too. The picture "says" it all. I bought the s-biner at Auto-Zone and Academy Sports & Outdoors, of course also available online.
im using s-biners from the same brand, but they havea lock on them. really nice, I'd recommend
<p>This is a good idea, but if it was a survival paracord bracelet (which I would assume it is, I don't know of any other kind) why did you need to cut the buckles? Couldn't you just untie the ends and make it again on the s-biner?</p>
Great idea! I was curious on what size s-biner you used #.5 or #1?
Pictured is .5 but also I use #1.
Have you ever used any of the #0 ones? they only make them in plastic.. :( <br>I went to go buy some of the SS .5's, but I thought they might be irritating when you're wearing them. The paracord bracelet I have now I've been wearing for 4 years strait, with the exception of maybe a week because of cleaning every now and then. I'm concerned the S-biner will be bothersome when typing. Do you find this true?
<p>No, I can't say I have, the carabiner has such a low profile I can hardly tell it's there.</p>
<p>With the bulky buckles, they are suppose to be wrapped as a &quot;King Cobra&quot; instead of a cobra or a Solomon bar.</p>
I like the low profile and the look of the stainless steel. I actually <a href="https://www.instructables.com/id/Slide-n-Tie-Survival-Bracelet/" rel="nofollow">used this method</a> to attach mine to my wrist. I personally wouldn't want to risk any type of buckle breaking, as I always wear mine as well. I only take it off to take a shower though, I don't want to get soap in the cord, haha. Thanks for sharing.

AWESOME!! Been searching for 3 hours for different ways to close my bracelets off.... This is the winner! Thanks so much for sharing :)
Enjoy and thank you, becseb.
You're very welcome. Enjoy.
I agree 5 stars
Thank you, please share.
What a great idea! My 12 yr. old son bought one of these bracelets on a cherised family trip. He wore it all the time and, of course, the cheap plastic side release clip broke. I was looking for a way to fix it without cutting the paracord to put on a new clip. Thanks for sharing. He will be so happy.
You're very welcome. I have a ten year old boy... at the end of the day all that really matters is being a hero at home. Enjoy!
Now<em> this </em>is a great idea, best one I've see yet for these S clips!&nbsp;<strong> FIVE STARS</strong>
You're too kind, Denger. I appreciate the feedback.
Looks nice!! <br> <br>to make the getting it on and off part easier, perhaps if you pick a smaller size S biner then you have now, and making a loop from the begin of the bracelet with a buckle. that part(lower part at your pic) can be bend back making it easier to clip it on. <br>it also makes it a bit more loose, personally i dont like the tight bracelets lol
