Paracord wrist lanyard made with the snake knot


I've made a tutorial for the snake knot paracord lanyard and put it up on the instructables website.

Hopefully the tutorial will help those that have had trouble with the snake knot.

Great job. Thanks for posting the tutorial. I had been wondering about how to do this knot. Thanks again

Very nice SD. I did a key fob with the snake knot and it turned out well. I started with a lanyard knot in two colors and then ended with one also. I have mentioned your blog several times on my blog. I hope you don't mind.

I would love to have one of these with a CR123 battery holder in the snake knot area. Could a knot be opened and a battery inserted, then closed back up tight. It could then be switched with a dead one. I'm very excited about this possibility. I'll try it myself, perhaps you have an idea of what type of knot...modified monkey fist?

Thanks!

Josh

Since the batteries need to be protected from moisture, I probably wouldn't just use paracord knot work over the battery itself, although you could use a sinnet, snake knot, or turks head to cover a battery.

You might try using a pill fob or similar container to hold a battery and knot over it or attach it to a fob/lanyard to keep a spare battery with a flashlight...

Experiment and see what works. :)

I've been trying to figure out how to make a snake knot bracelet with 3/8" side release buckles. Could you tell me how to do it?

@Anonymous, Loop your center of single color cord or two attached colors onto one buckle end, then tie snake knots for wrist length, then run both cord ends around other buckle end, and tie a square knot around the strands up against the last snake knots. Trim/melt, sew or glue to finish.
