Paracord Pack

$2.99

550 Paracord is one of the most universal and beneficial pieces of kit people should always have. We found that its benefits transfer over to rifle sling attachments and offer one of the best connection methods for rifle slings. Paracord connections allow the user to attach their rifle sling to any static components on a rifle. This means you can set up your sling exactly where you want it without being limited by the locations of QD sockets or loops for HK hooks. Another primary benefit of this connection method is that it is noise-free. For anyone working in environments where sound reduction is critical, paracord will prevent any metal-on-metal noises and makes for a virtually silent connection. Paracord is also far lighter than any other connection method and will keep the weight down when ounces equal pounds.

Many end users have been using paracord to connect their rifle slings dating back to the origins of paracord. Edgar has personally been using paracord to connect his slings to his carbines since the initial release of the ESD sling. One detail he prefers about it is its unique benefit for stock/brace mounting. Traditional QD swivels lock into place on either the left or right hand side of the stock/brace. When transitioning shoulders, you will often hear people talk about how their slings choke them unless they swoop their arm out of the sling to create more space. However, with a paracord connection, you can create a loop that transitions over the stock/brace. This allows for the sling to flow freely from left to right preventing the choking feeling you typically get.

We note that although paracord has some amazing benefits it also has a lifespan shorter than most QD swivels. You won’t run into melting issues so long as the paracord isn’t making direct contact with your muzzle, barrel, gas tube or barrel nut. However, over time paracord tied into a rail can slowly wear out. We recommend checking your paracord every 4-6 months to ensure that it’s not broken through any of the internal strands.

We’ve included two 18” strands of paracord here. We found that 18” strands allow for you to customize your sling to where you want it and give you some extra wiggle room to make installation easier. Our 550 paracord is made right here in the USA.

Installation:

To install simply find the location on your rail or stock/brace you’d like to mount to. From there ensure the area you plan on tying your paracord to is secure, so the paracord won’t slip off or come out of place. Once you have found the desired location, tie an overhand knot. This method is preferred because of its simplicity and reliability. Tie it tight and pull on the paracord to cinch the knot down getting rid of any slack or play in the knot. When installing for the first time we recommend that you do not cut the excess paracord until you have found the desired location for your paracord loop.

Once you’re settled on where you’ve mounted your sling, cut the excess paracord leaving a small tail by the knot. Take a lighter and melt the freshly cut ends and heat the knot up slightly. This will help lock everything in place and provide a bomb-proof setup. From here weave your ESD sling through the loop covering your knot and retrace your sling through the tri-glide.

Disclaimer: we are not liable for any sailor’s incapable of tying insufficient knots. If you are unsure of the security of your knot, please contact us via social media or email: [email protected] and send a photo of your handiwork. If you’re reading all of this and are paying attention you’ve got a chance to win something cool. The first person to make a monkey’s fist and use that to connect your ESD sling will receive a special prototype preproduction product well before release. Lastly, we will gladly help guide you through the installation step by step. All we ask is that if you cut your paracord too short or melt through it with a lighter, hold yourself accountable and order 100ft of paracord from your favorite dealer and try again vs demanding a replacement strand. Thanks for your support and we’re excited to see what kind of knots you use!

    I fell in love with paracord attachments for slings here recently when I tried some out in person. So when I purchased the sling and different color tab I had to throw in the paracord. Works great with the color scheme of the Honey Badger.
