How To Make A Quick Deploy Paracord Donut
Discover how to make a paracord donut that can be undone in one second. This instructional video presented by Chain AZ will show you how to make a paracord donut that is knot-less and a more practical and convenient way to store your paracord.
For this project you will need about 30’ of TITAN WarriorCord or SurvivorCord paracord. Make sure there are no tangles or knots in the paracord. It is also a good idea to make sure the ends are sealed. This will prevent them from fraying and from the inner strands working their way out of the shell. Then holding one of the ends in your hand with your thumb, wrap the paracord around your fingers five times. This will create the base of the donut.
Once you have made the base of the donut, with the working cord at the top, create a loop. The working end should be flowing behind the donut base. Take the working cord that is behind the donut base, create a small loop, bring it through the center of the donut and then through the loop created at the top. Pull the work tight.
You should have a new top loop and the working cord should be flowing from front to back through the center of the donut, whereas before it was going from back to front. Create a small loop on the working cord and then put it through the loop at the top of the donut from behind. Pull the work tight while maintaining a loop at the top of the donut. You can adjust your loop size by adjusting the working cord, pushing to make the loop bigger and pulling to make the loop smaller.
The working cord should now be flowing on the backside of the donut. Repeat the first step by making a small loop with the working cord, bringing it through the center of the donut and then through the top loop, and then pulling the work tight. Then repeat the second step of creating a loop in the working cord, working it through the top loop from behind, and then pulling tight.
Continue this two-step process until you have all of the cord wrapped into the donut. Half of the paracord will make one complete circle around the donut. Once you finish the first complete circle, just continue the same process over the top of it. Make your last pass very tight to hold it in place.
When you need some paracord, simply pull on the remaining cord and it will unravel with complete ease. This paracord donut is a very practical and organized solution for storing your TITAN paracord.
