      This bracelet is quick deploy, one of the quickest we know of. You take the pin out of clasp out of the end or cut the end if using a plastic buckle, and you can quickly access 15 feet of paracord. Your paracord can be used for fishing, setting traps and snares and to build shelters, plus lots of other uses.

    Great articles in here! I think people should know beforehand that this bracelet will not deploy with a regular buckle. I made one and it would not unravel so I remade it with a mini carabiner clip and It works great. I love this and now that I know how to make it I will never go back to wearing a “standard” paracord bracelet again. I needed it once and it took me 15 minutes and a leather man to undo it! I was lucky that I had 15 minutes to fiddle with it….in a real emergency you need a quick deploy bracelet. Thanks again!
