Well, now that you’re here, let’s get this cool paracord solid gear wrap project started!
What You Need to Make a Paracord Solid Gear Wrap:
- A tool with a solid handle
- Spool of Paracord
Instructions to Make a Paracord Solid Gear Wrap :
Step 1. Grab Your Weapon, er…I Mean Tool
Prepare your gears, tools, paracord, and other materials. To give you an idea, 14 feet of paracord makes a 4.5-inch wrap.
Step 2. Begin Your Loop
Start an inch from the base of your tool or gear handle. Make a long loop that is the length you want your wrap to be, then pinch the string into place with your thumb.
Step 3. Wrap
Wrap the paracord around the beginning of the loop so it remains in place.
Step 4. Continue
Continue wrapping the Paracord tightly down the handle of your tool until the loop is almost covered.
Step 5. Cut the Ends
Cut the end of the string with a pair of scissors
Step 6. Threading
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 Again
Cut the excess string at both ends.
Step 9. Melt End of String
Use a lighter to melt the ends of the string.
Step 10. Mesh Ends with the Wrap
With your scissors, flatten the melted ends of the string so they mesh with the rest of the Paracord.
Step 11. Test Your Finished DIY Paracord Handle Project!
Wield your war hammer furiously without embarrassing yourself.
Whether you’re going to the mall on a sleepy Sunday or turning Dragon brains into a broth, walk tall with the bravado of a (wo)man who has cat tongues for palms.
Or sandpaper, whatever imagery works for you. Point is, you won’t be dropping stuff.
