Snake Knot Wrist Lanyard

Gareth

That is exactly what I have been looking for. Do you have, or can recommend a link to a detailed photo or video step-by-step please.

Thank you for that.

I shall be giving that a go soon to see if it is suitable for the purpose that I intend for it.

That looks really smart
Gareth

Asemery mate,

what method do you recommend for joining the two different coloured cords together? Stitch, glue or melt?

I like the stitching method explained in step 2 of the instructables link
http://www.instructables.com/id/P...lanyard-made-with-the-snake-knot/.  I think that a bit of glue in that set up would work well also.  I do not like the hard ends melting produces.  Tony

I have ordered several different coloured 100 feet long hanks of 550 Paracord for a ridiculously cheap price from a Hong Kong ebay shop (I use this supplier on a regular basis for other items and I trust the quality of the goods they dispatch).

I have also obtained some stainless steel Carbine hooks from another ebay shop (one of Bodger's neighbours actually), so when the all bits arrive I am going make a handful or so of these Snake knot lanyards. I have decided to use the stitch method to join the two different coloured pieces together as shown in this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lTIUMo2GYq4

I am looking forward to doing this project and making a few of these Lanyards.

Gareth,
I just recallled another method.  I haven't tried it but it looks like a good way to join paracord.  Tony

That looks to be a good, easy and efficient method to use. However, the 4" Stainless Steel lacing needles do not seem to be available in the UK, and the postage from the US seems to be around twice the purchase price of the needle.

I have made my own from what in the states we call a binding post.
I used a 2" post with a 1" extenson to make a very useful needle.  It already has threads  on the inside.  Tony

Several 6x60 stainless steel carbine hooks with eyes arrived today, as did 3 hanks of 550 paracord from Hong Kong. 1 black, 1 yellow, and 1 orange........... I now have no excuse not to have a go at making at least 1 of these lanyards.
Gareth

With everything I have got on at the moment I have not yet got around to making any of these snake weave lanyards. I have however forund my spool of black Linen thread which serves as my general purpose whipping thread, and it will be this that I will be using to stitch together my different coloured lengths of paracord.

This evening whilst surfing around ebay I found some threaded paracord needles; 1 X 3" straight, and 1 X 3" curved. I did not resist and they should be with on Wednesday of this week.

Hey Asemery!

It's been a miserable wet bank holiday Monday here today so I spent a few hours making up 27 Snake knot wrist lanyards for stock.

I sell these either seperately or as the standard safety lanyard supplied with Cargo Cycles Rooferís Tile Batten Remover

I have used the "Manny method" for joining the two different coloured paracords together.



I have used 50 kg rated "eyed" 6mm X 60mm Stainless Steel carbine hooks, which I purchased mail order from Painless Stainless who are sort of nearish neighbours of Bodger & Kaz.
