ALWAYS BE PREPARED! Soldiers and survivalists live by this motto, and many of them find 550 paracord to be an essential part of being prepared. An awesome survival bracelet is the easiest way to take 550 paracord with you wherever you go. Now you can learn how to make paracord bracelets yourself and have a lot of fun doing it!
The paratroopers of World War II would use 550 paracord as suspension lines for their parachutes knowing that once they landed in the battle zone, that same cord would be an essential tool in their survival arsenal. Here are a few of the things that paratroopers used their 550 paracord for:
- as a tourniquet in first aid situations
- to repair equipment
- to replace shoelaces or boot laces
- to repair torn or ripped clothing, sleeping bags, tents
- to weave into a net for fishing
- to use as webbing to carry supplies or food
- to use as fishing line
- as a clothesline for drying wet clothing
- to make traps to catch an animal
- to tie up an enemy soldier (although unless you are a soldier active in a war zone, we don’t recommend that you do this. Even though the brave paratroopers of World War II did just that!)
Making your own survival bracelet can be a fun project to do with your friends, your family, or even as a special homeschool project. After you learn how to make paracord bracelets efficiently, you’ll be able to make one in about five minutes. Then you can turn your new hobby into a little business. 550 Cord Bracelets sell very well and can be a great opportunity for a fundraiser for field trips, church groups, clubs, charity events, or anyone looking to start their own business. (Besides being a good project, there’s also an economics lesson hiding in here!)
