Cobra Weaved Lighter

Introduction: Cobra Weaved Lighter

About: Bearded man with a passion for paracord.


Here is my trusty BIC lighter covered in 3ft of white 550lb Para-Cord, I think it looks great and it works great as well. Next thing to do is find a small cover for lighter's so that I can replace the lighter when it's done. Right now I'll have to weave myself another cover when this one's done :(

Not sure if this was any help to my weaving of the lighter but I wrapped it in hockey tape to make it less slippery when working with it.

    not sure if this would work or not because of the tape .. but when your lighter runs out could you get another one the same size and match them up at the bottoms and slide the paracord from one to the other?

    Your right, its a photo instructable. I do these to. They are nice for when you make a project but dont take pictures during the building of it.
