Usage of Paracord

Paracord is useful in just about any situation. Here we have compiled a list of paracord usage and what you can make with it.

  1. Handle wrap for knives, axes, hammer etc
  2. Traps/snares

  3. Shoe laces/boot laces
  4. Bow string
    The 550 lbs (or 250 kg) breaking strength of paracord allows archers to replace their bow string with it.
    This is a DIY bow handmade by one of our customers with fiberglass and paracord as the bow string:

  5. Tow rope

  6. Slingshot
  7. Lanyards for EDC: multitool, torch light, keys, knives
  8. Dental floss
    Imagine yourself being stuck in the wild, you don't have the luxury for a tooth pick around you. What do you do with the meat stuck between your teeth since the last meal? The paracord inner strand might help.
  9. Tourniquet
    One of the life-saving uses of paracord is to stop wounds from bleeding. Wrap around injured arms or legs with adequate tension to create a tourniquet which can compress the blood artery to prevent blood flowing to the bleeding wound.
  10. Fishing lines
    Let's say, an average bracelet is made with 7 ft of paracord where there are 7 inner 2-ply strands. That's total of nearly 100 ft (7 x 7 x 2 = 98 ft) of fishing line available for your use. If you are in the wild and running out of food, congratulation, fishing is an option for you if you have a paracord bracelet on your wrist.
  11. Fishing net
    If you have more paracord available, why not make a fishing net to hunt for more fishes?
  12. Waist belt
