Custom paracord door handles

I totally meant to post this a few months ago, but the very 1st upgrade I got to my YJ was new door handles. One was just a cloth strap and the other was the stock handle that was starting to crack.

So my buddy at work who makes paracord EVERYTHING said he could make the handles. I gave him my good handle and he shows up the next day with THESE THINGS! Not only did he make em look awesome, he made em to last. At each end where they go under the handle covers, he put a grommet in there so the cord wouldn't rub against the screw. Figured I'd let you dudes see this. I know there's ones out there you can buy, but apparently it's very doable yourself.

also useful if anything falls off the jeep, you just cut your handle off with a knife and unravel the cord to make a tie down.

On a similar note, I just bought the Ashley Book of Knots.

there's a guy near me that does these too...he uses a metal tab and d-ring arrangement to keep the paracord from rubbing on anything that might abrade it

pulls, stays, and a keychain

Yes those are awesome! I commissioned my 11 year old daughter to make my grab handles. I need a set of those and I'll tip her off on the grommet, that's a good idea. Craft stores have the cord if you want to do it yourself.. They have the plastic clips too
