Learn how to make a lanyard that can be made and used easily.
The quick deploy paracord lanyard design I am about to show you is one of the easiest items you can make out of paracord. It is made to store paracord in a way that you can use in under 5 seconds. It stores an ample supply of paracord and can be redone in a minute or less. That is right! The whole project takes under a minute to make!
I have decided to feature this design because I really like quick deploy gear. It provides you with the cord you need, WHEN you need it. Everything else just seems inferior as far as survival equipment goes.
I do not know who came up with this design, but I have seen it featured on various websites around the web. The tutorials are usually not very good, so I made my own. I will also included a video from ITStactical.com, who really have a great video tutorial available!
I would recommend this lanyard design for those that would like to keep some paracord around. It can be used instead of a zipper pull, since it resembles it quite nicely.
The only thing you will need for this project is some paracord 550, about 4 feet would be enough.
You can decide to also finish this lanyard using a lanyard knot, which would result in a quick deploy bracelet, which is not too shabby at all!
How to make a quick deploy lanyard
The whole process involves simply folding the cord in half. Then just wrap the cords around the folded cord. Finish by tucking the ends through the loops. Then just pull everything downwards towards the cord ends.

I hope you enjoyed the tutorial, till next time, Mark.
