Step 1: Make a Cobra Weave Bat

The same way you make a paracord bracelet, you make a cobra weave bar.

Step 2:

The cobra weave bar will be used as main structure for the pouch.

Step 3: Length

Make sure the cobra weave bar is long enough to wrap it around the tool perimiter, minus one side to be left open as the pouch mouth.

Step 4: Side Walls

With a paracord lacing needle, weave to side of the pouch, in and out as shown om the picture.

Step 5: Side Walls

Keep weaving from the mouth of the pouch, to the bottom, then cross to the other side and proceede weaving from bottom to top.

Step 6: Adjusting

keep going...

Step 7: Fitting

place the tool inside the pouch, adjust the side weaving by loosening or tightening as needed to assure a smooth fit.

Step 8: Finishing

Tie the ends of the side weaving, trim any excess and use a lighter to melt the ends.

Step 9: Et Voila!

surprisingly, it also fits the Gerber Dime Multi tool

TY Megnine!

I've seen paracord PV (ecig) lanyards for sale but never a good enough pic for me to figure how it was done.

After reading your Instructable, I was able to make my own by slightly modifying your work.

I used Multiple Overhand Sliding/Scaffold Knots to start / finish the Cobra section and attach D-Rings so it can attach to my belt via carabiner or to a neck lanyard setup. I also dropped one side thread to allow for the PV's button.

Could this be modified to fit a Leatherman Freestyle or a larger Gerber?

Thx GreatSage. I'm glad you like it. Like you said, it fits Gerber Dime perfectly.

Made one of these today and it fits my Gerber Dime perfectly! It's really nice to be able to carry it around in my pocket now without the paint job getting scuffed up. Oh and you can also use something like hemostats to pry the sides of the cobra weave open for the sides of the pouch. But good idea. :)

I own a leatherman squirt myself, and I've really put it to the test through making my instructables. This could really protect its paint finish! Neat idea!
