Introduction: Kinco Winter Glove Leash

Never lose a glove from the chairlift again.

Step 1: Gather Materials

  1. A pair of Kinco work gloves with a link at the wrist. Their Heatkeep insulation which will keep your hands warm is quite nice. It's best to waterproof the gloves first. See this instructable
  2. A 40" length of stretch (shock) cord
  3. Two cord locks

Pictured are the materials for a single glove and a 20" piece of shock cord already tied in a loop.

Step 2: Attach Stretch Cord

Unlink the gloves if needed. After cutting your length of stretch cord in half and forming two loops, pass one of the loops through the attachment on the wrist of the glove meant for the link. Pull the loop through to the knot made in the loop. If the cord and/or knot is not thick enough to retain the loop then tie a bead, or nut inside the loop, or even zip-tie in place.

Step 3: Thread Cord Lock

On the other side of the link connecter from where the shock cord knot is, thread one cord lock onto the cord.

Step 4: Place Hand Inside Cord Loop

Pull the cord through the cord lock enough to allow your hand to fit through. Place hand in loop, then pull the stretch cord back through the cord lock to a snug fit.

Now your glove is ready to be put on and not fall off when you pull off your glove to take a phone call on the chairlift.
