Cobra Paracord Survival Bracelet - Supplies

Step 1:

Once you cut your paracord to the desired length (about 10 feet), seal the end using your lighter. You don’t want to be working with a frayed end. Now, measure your wrist size by taking one end of the paracord and wrap it around your wrist. Lay that section next to your measuring tape to see how many inches long your bracelet will be.

Step 2:

Let’s first attach the male buckle to the paracord. To do this, fold your piece of paracord in half and pull the ends through the bottom slot of the buckle.
Then pull the ends through the loop created by your paracord. Pull them all the way through until the paracord is secured around the buckle.
