Hi this is Megan with and today I'm going to show you how to use the EZzzy-Jig bracelet maker which is a jig to help you make paracord bracelets. This is what the bracelets can look like. They can have a whole lot of different variations but these are a couple of the basic ones and it comes in a box like that. It does come with instructions also but I just wanted to walk you through it and I'll show you how to use it. It's really pretty simple. So this is what the jig looks like. It does come with buckles in the 15 millimeter and the 12 millimeters size and if you want to use a different size buckle you can always unscrew the little piece that holds it on and just put an extra set of buckles on there for a different size buckle too so you can change that out. The 15 millimeter buckle. This is by the way the measurement for the inside so they do look bigger than that but this is 15 millimeters in here. The 15 millimeters is going to be the size that works really nicely with your basic, just plain cobra bracelet. So that's a standard. I used the 12 in this bracelet and I've actually stripped the core out of the paracord on this one and it fit really well in the twelve for a little bit of the dainty look. If you're going to a project with different sizes you can switch them out It does come with these buckles on there which means you don't need an extra buckle which is nice One of the really handy things about this tool is that it has this little ruler right here and if you line up that mark with the size finished bracelet if you want, it's gonna help you take some of the math and guesswork out of how long you want your braid part to be versus the whole thing and the buckle overlap and all that so to start with you're gonna determine your bracelet length. So loosen the wing nut at the bottom and slide it over to the size bracelet you want. I'm going to do 7. You want to give that a good snug tight twist on there because you don't want the jig to rotate back and forth this way so just line this mark up with your measurement and then you're going to put your buckle on and all you do is attach the ends into the the buckles that are already attached very simple. So we do have a video on how to make a basic paracord cobra bracelet. So I'm not gonna spend a lot of time showing you how to do the bracelet or how to finish it. I'm just gonna show you what's different with the jig. So you would go ahead and knot your paracord onto the buckle to start just like you would do if you're going to do it holding on to it and I have about eight inches here. You want to try use about a foot of cord per inch of finished knotting. Put the other ends of your cords through the opening on the other buckle and now you have the whole thing stretched out in front of you and you have a nice sturdy base to work on so you would just do you're knotting like normal and like I said we do have a video on how to do this technique. Just how to make a basic paracord cobra bracelet. So if you're not familiar with that you can watch that video but you were just finish that up just like you usually would, go ahead and fuse the ends to hold it in place and when you're all done just undo the buckles and your bracelet is the right size and ready to go so if your gonna be doing a lot of paracord it can be a really handy tool and save you some time and a little a bit of an headache. That's how it's used. Go to to purchase beading supplies and to get design ideas!
