In the following tutorial you will see some examples of the zipper sinnet paracord bracelet and learn how to tie it.
The zipper sinnet technique is a part of my research on the various quick release ties and as you might have noticed, at least a few of the featured bracelet designs share the same feature. The quick release mechanism just means the bracelet can be easily and quickly untied, which is mostly used in survival equipment. As such, this bracelet will serve well as a survival bracelet. It is fairly thin though, especially compared to some larger designs, so it does not store the maximum amount of cordage. It is eye pleasing though, as well as comfortable to wear and does not get in the way much.

The bracelet is easy to make. The hardest thing about it would be the basic set up, which is a slip knot. After that has been done, we simply alternate passing bights from the left and right through the loop. Tightening is essential in making this bracelet and will provide you with a consistent look. When you reach a desired length, pass a cord through the loop and make a lanyard knot to finish the bracelet up.
In the tutorial I show you how to make a single color bracelet. For two colors, you will need to attach one cord to the other, which I did by making a paracord prayer bead, which is shown in my paracord necklace tutorial.
