Ok, been wanting to sleeve my 1632 tubing on my frameless / bareback rigs that I keep on my wrists.

How in the heck do y'all get the Paracord sleeve ( 5 inner strands removed of course) over the tubes ?

I bought some clear nylon hanging wire (like @Hunter13 used in his YouTube video ) which easily slips into the 1632 tubing, then tried taping around that latex / hanging wire joint, and tried pulling it all back through the sleeving, only to have it come loose about 1/2 way through, leaving the tape stuck up inside my Paracord.....Grrrrrr

Any tips, tricks, or techniques to be shared ?

Maybe a drop of super glue on the end, then trim that off when it comes through?
I did think about trying CA Steve, but ran out of time on my lunch hour, but great suggestion..... will try that tomorrow morning and post how it goes, tks.

I think Covert5 is the master of this skill. I almost recall asking him what the secret sauce was. I think his answer was 'use paracord bigger than the tubes and go really slow while tugging and twisting and turning until you have the tube through the paracord'. Honesty I don't remember the exact details but I do remember thinking 'you have got to be friggin kidding me'...!!!

Yeah MO, I was hoping Oliver would reply as he was the first one I thought might know.

What say you @Covert5 ?

What we have here, is a failure to use enough tape!
Use 3 inches, laid with the direction of the tube and runner, roll em up like a carpet.
Heck, use 4 inches!
Come on, big spender!
LoL, Ray. So how many boiled eggs can Darrell eat?

But seriously, I'm might try this next week myself. Covering frameless tubes, not watching old movies!

Darrell can eat as many as he wants, once he gets his mind right!

Great movie.

Picking it up, Boss!

I haven't done it, but can you run your wire all the way through the tube and knot the end? If bailing wire fits inside, a simple fold over loop on the end will secure it.
Can get my wire all the through the tube Reed, but is hard nylon and no way to knot the end of it, but bailing wire might just work

Hey guys! I'm sorry I'm late to the party! I did do a video, but Hunter13's video makes the process so much easier without the finger cramps! Lol! But reading your post Darrell, your paracord's diameter may be to small or really close to the same size as the 1632 tubing. You said you removed the 5 strands. You have to use the 550 paracord with at least 7 inner nylon strands. Those two missing strands make a difference with the diameter of the paracord. I'm guessing that's the problem you had.

SJAaz's idea about using a drop of super glue is another genius idea! I'm love'n the hacks!

I hope this helps!

That does make sense Oliver, tks.

I will have to make a trip to bored Paracord and pick some up with 7 strands as I don't have any.

I think that the 5 strand and the 7 strand use the same exterior wrap. The 9 strand might be bigger, but if you grab the 5 strands on one side with the other side still melted, you can fully open the exterior wrap by pushing it back on itself, then you can either cut and pull the 5 strands through, or connect them to your band first to pull it through.

Are you trying to cover the 1632 completely or just a small section of it? If you cover the 1632 full length in it's relaxed state when you draw it out the 550 sleeve will shift then when it returns to it's relaxed state it will bunch up funny.

Did you try melting the end of the nylon cord? Carefully melt the end of the nylon into a small rounded blob then tie off like a stop bead.

Repeat process to other end of 1632.

Leave enough nylon cord(2-3 ft) to anchor too, a clothes rod in a closet or exposed roof rafter works.

Cut other end of nylon cord about 4ft long

Using a sharpened #2 pencil(pen, medium sized knitting, pointed dowel etc) carefully insert into 550 cord sleeve flaring out the end melt into cone shape over lit candle.

Repeat to other end of 550 cord.

Slip 550 cord over loose(Unanchored) end of nylon cord.

Apply enough tension to stretch 1632 to about 50% and tie off, cover in light talcum powder slip 550 cord over tensioned 1632.

When 550 sleeve is in position slowly release tension on 1632

It's easier to due then explain good luck looking forward to seeing your results
