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.

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

    Excellent instructions, very easy to follow and remember. Exactly what I was looking to find out, boy was I off on what I was thinking. I seem to recall instructions a few weeks ago that said to use some type of adhesive, but this looks much better. Thank you.

    nice hammer!!!
    I think you’ll get even better results if you pull the ends into the wrapping as is the standard whipping technique. that way the whipping is much more secure.
