Default paracord dog leash ?



Advertise Here

Been thinking a paracord leash would be a great way to carry a ton of paracord in a useful way.
Any suggestions on a weave that would hold up but also pull out easy if needed ?

The only weaves I use are the river weave or the cobra weave. You are gonna need a lot of 550 cord for either. I work in Memphis at Fedex, live in Southaven. Didn't want to fight traffic to your side of woods.

Default If you google or bing that

phrase you'll get lots of sites like this one...

I was amazed at the array of things they make out of paracord for quick access these days. Belts, leashes, collars, keychains, gloves, knife handles etc.

Don't blame you, wouldn't want to make that drive either. I hate going to fedex or the airport anyway, don't like safe for criminals zones. ;-)

On the main page you'll find "How to make a bracelet out of paracord"...
I suppose you could just go waaaay longer.

I like the sinnet. Its easy to handle long pieces of Paracord and also a breeze to unravel when you need it. TIAT has a nice youtube vid on it.

I have done this. I used 100 ft of paracord a choke chain for the handle and a regular leash clip. Used the cobra stitch. High quality. Provides good stretch.

made one out of climbing rope once with a simple weave, ask any climber and they will have old rope, that they will no longer risk there life with, but would with care tow a car, and its a nice size to handle and cool colours.
