Possibly the Best Way to Fuse Paracord: The Manny Method



Perhaps the best way to fuse two pieces of 550 Paracord is a technique known as the Manny Method. This is a method invented by Manuel Zembrano on the Parachute Cord Crafters Facebook group.



You will need one or two paracord needles, two pieces of paracord, a pair of scissors, and a lighter.

First, cut the end of the paracord and pull out about 1-2 inches from the internal strands. Cut these strands, and pull the colored sheath back out. Do this for both pieces of paracord.

Then, lightly singe the frayed ends of the paracord.

Take the needle of one of the strands and pierce the colored sheath of the other strands of paracord. Pull it through the opening.

Then, do the same with the other strand of cord.


If you did this correctly, you should have a fusion that looks like this. Pull this tight, and your cord will be very secure, ready for any paracord project that you will be starting.
