How to tie or make your own paracord cord locks and cord ends with celtic button knot

Don’t have cord locks or cord ends? Fret not. This Paracord Projects is perfect for you.

This video is from themediocrepirate on youtube. The video as audio quality is very clear but the instructions are a little tricky to follow. But once you get the hang of it, you will realize how easy it really is to create.

This is one of my favorite and I highly recommended this even for beginners. If you don’t want to purchase cord locks or cord ends, this would be a great and cheaper alternative.

This is also a neat way to finish off your lanyards, but you still need to burn the ends if you intend to use this method as cord ends.

The downside I notice with this is that there is not that much grip when you want to use it as a cord lock. I still prefer cord locks for that purpose but it looks really cool as cord ends and I really have no problem with that.

If you don’t have a paracord yet, you can visit theĀ Paracord Supplies section and you can purchase your paracords from there.

  1. I really love this knot. I use it a lot with the gear I have. I use it for the paracord bracelets as well. Great Knot!

  2. I like the 2 colour idea. I’ve always thought the name of the knot in the video is a Lanyard knot. It’s my understanding that a Celtic button knot has only I cord at the end to deal with.

    Thanks for the Vid. I have seen others that were a little bit easier to follow on the Lanyard Knot. Ones that show pulling the two ends thru holes spaced a couple inches apart in a piece of paper, and others without using the paper. Your enthusiasim and demeanor really works well at keeping an audience engaged but maybe next time spend a bit of time on Prep and make sure that you aren’t fumbling with it as in this video a bit. It will make it alot easier for people to follow your moves and know easily how to re-create it.

    Thanks much,
