What is Paracord?
Topic by TSC | last reply
Ok, let me preface what I am about to say by letting you know that I am not trying to be rude in any way. I think there are way to many Instructables coming out about paracord bracelets. I frequently get Instructable newsletters in my inbox with a paracord bracelet Instructable. Paracord bracelets is a very dead horse at this point. I am not trying to be mean or rude, I am just suggesting that people should think of a different Instructable before they consider making one about paracord bracelets. Cheers! Darman12

Are you into paracord? Are you interested in survial? Are you prepared for when the "Shumer Hits the Fan"? Well I am a avid reader of a wonderfuly informative site that you may have heard of. Survivalblog.com. Today they have partnered up with another site Campingsurvival.com with a paracord contest that I thought to share with everyone here. The rules are simple and easy. In this giveaway, the winner will receive 6 ROLLS of 1000' paracord for FREE! We are giving these rolls away in the colors of black, coyote brown, desert sand, foliage green, olive drab, and royal blue! The retail value for all of these paracord rolls is roughly $225, but could be yours to own FREE! "We're assuming if you're here, you already love paracord, right? That's why we want you to describe to us your favorite paracord project, or list us some of your favorite uses for paracord and how you execute them. OR, if you've never used paracord but can't wait to start, what do you plan to use it for and how? what will be your use of choice? Remember, this is all personal opinion and knowledge ... there is no right or wrong answer!" Now by posting this I've probably shot my chances to win down the tubes but I feel the more that know about the contest, and both websites, the better. Find your way there and you also get a 5% off purchase coupon if you buy anything from them. What a deal!

I want to weave a paracord sheet, roughly about 120mm x 210mm. How mush paracord will I need? Also, the paracord will be white in colour. I will also line the paracord sheet with fabric with a design on it. The design face will come back on itself to form a pouch and the excess will form a 'lid'. When the sheet comes back on itself, i will join the sides together with elastic material. Also, I will laser cut on black acrylic an android robot, which will sit on a face of the case. How do you find my design?

Next week we'll be starting a paracord speed contest. Make anything out of paracord to win a Leatherman with a laser-etched message of your choice! You can include other materials or wrap the paracord around something else, but the main focus of the Instructable should be all about the paracord. So start thinking of some ideas soon to show off your paracord skills. (Photo credit: David J. Fred)

I am making paracord bracelets and came across a article saying to shrink the cord first before making by putting in water and let it dry prior to making because if not it if gets wet after being made it will shrink. can anyone please tell me if they have done this or their theory. thanks steve

Hi, I have challenged myself to make a braided paracord halter and I need LOTS of help. I found one online that I really like and would like to duplicate. I purchased a book "How to Braid Quality Custom Tack", however the halters in this book are not quite what I want. Hoping someone will be able to give me some pointers or tell me where to find the directions I need. The picture of the halter I have attached is what I want to make. It appears to me that you would need to start with the nose band to make this work but none of the patterns I have found start that way. Help!!

Hi, I've made a few paracord bracelets mostly with the plastic buckles. I bought some stainless d shackles and wondering if there are any dangers using the shackles? Mainly getting the bracelet caught on something. I would think the plastic buckles would break, where the metal d shackles won't. I see a lot of bracelets with the d shackles. Anyone have any thoughts on this?

Question by steve1583 | last reply
I really want to make a few paracord survival bracelets, and my two things to ask are what is the best kind of paracord to use for one of these bracelets, and what method on instructables is best for carrying as much cord as possible on one bracelet.

I have reviewed the pages on how to tie one color paracord bracelets using the cobra knot but cannot find how to make them using two colors. I am brand new at making these and have yet to complete a bracelet with two colors.

While logged in (account links look correct in upper right hand corner), I visit the "Guide-to-Paracord" page. Immidiately, it looks as though I've been logged out ("Login" appears in the upper right.) Logging in and returning to this page always has this same effect (no other ebook page [so far] does so.) When clicking the "download" link, the mini-login appears. entering my username/password only cycles the page (ending in the same result.) https://www.instructables.com/id/Guide-to-Paracord/?download=ebook Maybe something wrong with the page...

I have submitted some entry's for a contest but they are not showing up in the contest entry's. They say they are waiting and pending moderator approval, but one has been submitted since Saturday and is now listed as a featured instructable but is still not listed in the contest. All of the other ones I have submitted in the past have gone right through but I have the Paracord bottle wrap and a few cupcake entry's not going through, but you can find them when doing a search. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

I'm looking for a way to join 3 strands of cord. It doesn't have to be simple (I'm good with knots.) I just need a way to join 3 strands of cord. Any suggestions?

I would simply order some online, but I'm afraid it won't arrive in time for the contest. Would it qualify if I simply substitute rope for paracord until it arrives?
