Quick deploy? How, why and what do you use these bracelets? Its for survival use where why when an how? I can only assume comes apart but not told uses. Clarify
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.
Pin out of what clasp? Instructions call for plastic buckle. How can it be 15 feet when instructions call for 13 feet? A nit maybe, but pay attention to details. Also cut the end of what? The cord? Then you would have two pieces about 6.5 feet or so. Or are you saying to cut the plastic buckle?
Was there ever an answer to this question? What’s quick about it if you have to find a tool to cut the super strong plastic buckle to deploy the paracord?
Aha! Don’t like critical comments, do we?

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!

I do want to learn how to undo the bracelet I have to learn how to do the other 550 cord projects.

instructions blaze bar do not include visual (still or video), confusing narration (loop left over all others followed by start with left)? clearly some editing is needed. test this way-can you make your bracelet using only your instructions? maybe blaze bar how to version 2 will be better.
