Introduction: Tactical Sling

how to create a tactical sling for under 15 euro

Step 1: Things You'll Need

you will need:

- 3 meters of 5 cm wide strap
- 2 meters of 2 cm wide elastic
- a right sized sliding buckle
- some thread (Black is adviced)
- a right size carabiner
- spare needles
- a sewing machine

Step 2: Sewing the Main Strap

cut the right size for you and make two of them.
sew them together (close to the edges) and make a kind of tube out of it.

Step 3: Puting the Elastic in It

pull the tube inside out. THIS CAN TAKE A WHILE!!
pull the elastic through the tube. it's easyer to use a rope.

Step 4: Make It Stretchy

pull the elastic 2 cm back in the tube and sew it right on the edge of the elastic.
strip up the tube to the wanted length and sew the other side of the tube (also leaving 2 cm).

Step 5: Attaching the Buckle

get a good length of the remaining strap and sew it on the ends of the tube.

Step 6: Finish It

get a little bit of strap and make a loop on the other side of the buckle (for the carabiner) and sew it close.

tada

It's absolutely on my to-do list.
Still deciding between this one or the adjustable one. both of your ideas are great.

I'm thinking in adapt one of those bungees with hook (http://www.amazon.com/Double-Hooks-Elastic-Straps-... cutting the hook out.

I just don't get why you have to turn it inside out. A wire threader would do the job. Or easier, sew the tube with a thin wire inside.

What do you think?

Thanks for this instructable
