Millipede paracord bracelet

This exotic bracelet is amazingly handy. Let’s learn how to make one!

The millipede paracord bracelet is a true survival bracelet design. I have great respect for this bracelet because of its amazing ability: It unravels in under 10 seconds.

Comparing to the traditional cobra paracord bracelet, the deployment time is a big bonus. The simple cobra knot bracelet took too long to use, the millipede paracord bracelet on the other hand, can be deployed instantly. No wonder it is referred to as a quick deployment bracelet.

The bracelet is also surprisingly easy to tie. The initial setup might take a bit of getting used to, but in general, this is not a hard bracelet to make at all.


  • Difficulty: medium
  • Cord storage: medium
  • Child friendly: no
  • Other names for the bracelet:  quick deployment bracelet, emergency deployment bracelet

Supplies needed

  • paracord, one or two colors
  • a source of heat to melt the ends with (a lighter works just fine)
  • something to cut the cord
  • paracord bracelet jig can be helpful

How to make a millipede paracord bracelet

The bracelet is made by first tying two slip knots, one on each of the cords, as seen on the images below. The loop part should be as long to wrap around your wrist, plus a bit for the loop. The cords under the slip knots are our working ends. As you will see, the tying process is extremely simple. I finish the bracelet using a lanyard/diamond knot.
