Readjust the size of your paracord bracelet (Cobra knot)

If your bracelet is too long and you would like it to be a little more adapted to your wrist then it is possible.

We will show you in this guide how to undo and redo your bracelet, which can also be useful if you need to use the paracord during your excursions.

Step 1: Measure your wrist

To make sure you get the right size, we suggest you measure your wrist with a tape measure or a string if you don’t have one.

Step 2: Unwrap the bracelet

In order to readjust it to the right size, you will have to untie your bracelet, to do this locate at one end of the bracelet the 2 ends of the rope, then start to untie the knots.

Step 3: Readjust the size

Once all the knots are untied, you should be able to adjust the size of the bracelet.

It is also possible not to double the length and to start the straightening with the cobra knot with only one length. Doubling the length allows you to strengthen your bracelet and store a little more rope.

Bonus step: complete de-stressing

In case you want to use your paracord, you can completely disassemble the bracelet, instead of reassembling the first length continue disassembly.

Step 4: Cobra knot and re-braiding

Now that you’ve got the right size, all you have to do is make your first cobra knot to seal the length of the bracelet.

Take the bottom rope and loop it over the middle ropes.

Then take the top rope and pass it over the bottom rope.

The top string then passes underneath the middle strings.

Then bring the top rope up through the loop of the bottom rope.

Now all you have to do is pull and seal your first knot.

You will then have to repeat this same knot until you reach the end of the bracelet, the next knot will be the reverse of the first.

(you can also find your way by the little loop that has formed which will tell you that it is on this side that you must start and make the first loop).

Step 5: Finalization

Once you have completely re-braided your bracelet by making all your cobra knots, you will have to cut the excess paracord, but not quite flush, leave a few millimeters over.

And finally, with a lighter, heat what is left and flatten the end. The goal is not to weld it to the rest of the bracelet, but just to make it flat so that it doesn’t come apart.
