Quick Deploy Paracord Bracelet
Learn how to make a paracord quick deploy bracelet with the blaze bar in this instructional how-to video. This unique paracord quick deploy bracelet is the ultimate survival bracelet that allows nearly instant access to the entire length of cordage contained within the bracelet.
To make a paracord quick deploy bracelet you will need a 3/16” bow anchor shackle, at least 14” of TITAN SurvivorCord and WarriorCord, and a lighter. To begin making the paracord quick deploy bracelet, start by attaching the paracord to the bow anchor shackle via a cow hitch. To attach the paracord through a cow hitch, fold the cord in half and taking the free ends together work them through the shackle, and then through the loop on the other side. Pull the ends all the way through and tighten to the shackle.
Take the ends and bring them to the top, keeping them behind the other cords. This should create two loops that are as long as your wrist length. These loops are going to be treated as if they are single strands, and will make up the core of the bracelet.
Next take the left working cord (not the loop) and wrap it one full pass around the top of both loops (aka center cords). Once you make one full pass around both center loop cords, take the left working cord over the left loop, and under the right loop. The left working cord should now be flowing to the right.
Now take the right working cord under the left working cord (that is now on the right), under the right center loop and over the left center loop. Then work the cord end through the loop that was created on the left side by the left working cord, entering from behind. Tighten the work and push it tight up against the shackle, but not overly tight.
Repeat the same process as just described, except for this time starting on the right side rather than the left. Continue the process, alternating starting sides with each completed knot, until you have about 1” of loop left at the end.
To finish the bracelet, take one of the working ends, create a loop, and feed the ends back through its loop. Do not tighten yet. Bring the loop over the top of the two center loops and then pull the working cord loop snug. Repeat the same process with the remaining working end. Cut the excess cordage and melt the ends into the end of the bracelet. Attach the remaining loop ends to the shackle to close the bracelet.
And that’s it! To deploy the bracelet simply hold the bracelet itself in one hand, and using your other hand pull on the shackle while pulling the bracelet in the opposite direction.
