Make this paracord weave for all sorts of survival gear and tools. Check out the super easy instructions below.
Materials for this Badass Paracord Solid Gear Wrap:
- A tool with a solid handle
- Spool of Paracord
Step 1: Ready Your Tool
Grab the tool you want to make a solid gear wrap on.
Step 2: Begin Your Loop
Make a long loop that is the length that you want your wrap to be, then pinch the string into place with your thumb.
Step 3: Start Wrapping
Wrap the Paracord around the beginning of the loop so that it remains in place.
Step 4: Continue Wrapping the Tool Handle
Continue wrapping the Paracord tightly down the handle of your tool until the loop is almost covered.
Step 5: Cut the String
Cut the end of the string with a pair of scissors.
Step 6: Thread the String
Thread the string through the remaining end of the loop.
Step 7: Tighten the Loop
Use pliers to pull the string at the beginning of the wrap. This will tighten the loop at the other end.
Step 8: Cut Excess String
Cut the excess string at both ends.
Step 9: Melt the String Ends
Use a lighter to melt the ends of the string.
Step 10: Flatten the Melted Ends
With your scissors, flatten the melted ends of the string so that they mesh with the rest of the Paracord.
Step 11: Test Wield
Wield your tool without embarrassing yourself.
