Paracord Hand Strap

I have a Wapiti Bugle strap with quick disconnect clips and Op-tech Utility Loops, Peak Design Capture clip (and a riggers belt for when I need it), and a Herringbone hand strap for normal use.




I forgot to bring my hand strap with me when I left home last November, but made due. I started to miss it so I looked around and didn't want to buy another one. So I made one...








Made with 550 paracord. The main strap (black) has the inner strands removed and then fused together to make a loop. You need to measure the length for your hand. Next I used tan with the inner strands removed and made a Cobra weave for all but a half inch or so on either end. Then I took a full piece of black and tan and fused them together, inner strands were left in, and I did another Cobra weave starting about a half inch before the previous weave and ending and equal distance after. I did this to get a small taper and to get a little more size to it.

To install I looped it through strap mount on the Capture clip plate. I then did the same on the strap mount. You need to ensure you leave enough of a loop to be able to pass the plate through. Then mount the plate.


I made this one last night as a trial run.








Next one I make I'm going to use the Op-tech Uni-loop with the clips so I can remove it easier, but this will do until then. It does mount to the Capture clip quite easily with no real interference.

I usually dislike handstraps, always too 70's looking. But that one i like. I'd buy one.

I'm not looking to sell these hence I posted how I made it. I didn't do anything really special. I just used what was already available on the net.

I know and I appreciate that. I have already had some requests, but I had to put it out there.

Well since there has been interest I sent an email to Survival Straps to see if they would be interested in adding it to their line. I personally support this company because they donate to The Wounded Warrior Project. So you never know.
