In the days before Zip-cuffs....we would make Prussic handcuffs made by a length of paracord and a Prussic knot. A prussic is a self-tightening knot thats used in mountaineering and other rope work.

Heres a quick tutorial

I used Orange cord to make it easier to see. Cut a length about 20 inches.

Rotate the knots to one finger and you can see the prussic knot.

Tie a knot in the end to keep the cord from being pulled thru.

There ya have it.

Simply slip them over the wrists and pull to tighten them and finish them up with some sort of knot that they wont be able to untie.

Enjoy.

Awesome ideas. And you guys keep up the good work. Ignore the male knitting stuff, lol, it was called macrame in the 70s. Used to make all kinds of decor stuff with same knots. I like the useful ideas much better. An owl hanging on the wall made of rope just doesn't seem too handy. Then again, a rope decoration on the wall of a retreat cabin, could be useful. Smile.

The 2nd to last pic (with the blue jogging pants background) is one that TIAT just posted yesterday but I used 4 strands instead of his 2...this was my first try at it and I need to tighten it up but its purdy

I'm sorry, I can't concentrate due to your picture.

Default Gear/key lanyards

I obviously have way too much time (and paracord) on my hands

These are some gear lanyards I made with some small "trigger snaps":

Default Sinnet-zipper weave paracord bracelet

Here's a simple video to help folks that are too afraid to tackle a cobra weave bracelet.....or something to do with a couple pieces of scrap paracord.

I'll apologize in advance for the music....so hit the MUTE button


Here's some of the ones I did with some scrap pieces of paracord....I added a BDU button instead of using just the knot.

Hello everyone. What you do with paracord is exactly the same thing as what old sailors did in the days of "Iron men and Wooden Ships". The craft was called MARLINSPIKING. If any of you have the opportunity to obtain some illustrated books on the subject, you will discover even more uses. They used to even "weave" line around jugs while at sea to prevent breakage. In addition to paracord for creativity and emergency repairs, I would also strongly suggest that you investigate Marine Supply Outlets,,,get some "main-sheet" line,,,on land its called ROPE...on a vessel its called line,,,even some of the quarter-inch line is incredibly super-strong. The thinner line is light-weight and pretty easy to store; the heavier line is QUIET, also light-weight, and better for simple things like pulling out a stuck vehicle. For super-strength, you can even get kevlar 1/4 inch line for heavy-duty applications. The main thing about line used for Marine applications is that it is UV ratred...SUNLIGHT is a life-giver AND a DESTROYER. Line/rope is an oft times neglected emergency supply.
