Ceiling fan pulls...

Challenges and suggestions for new knots and ties.

Ceiling fan pulls...

Postby MAD 69 » Tue Jun 25, 2013 12:51 pm

I have noticed that there are some really unique button knots and chain pulls in the ABOK's. my mother has problems turning on her ceiling fan since its mounted high, I would like to make a paracord pull - does anyone have any suggestions for a pull/knob? I have made one already using the 2 strand diamond knot,
Any suggestions would be appreciated, thanks

A simple Monkey Fist would make a good pull too since most fan pulls seem to be heavy.

adding a little weight would probably be a good thing, so that the fan doesn't make the pull fly around. I would suggest a monkey's fist with a small, heavy ball inside. If you really wanted to be ambitious, you could go for JD's two color tutorial.

I used an existing chain pull to start, I made a Marble/lantern knot around the small tear drop pull, since its not round the knot doesn't really fit that well, maybe I can to some snake knots underneath. By the way about an 8' strand if paracord to start.

Hi,
I am new to Knots and paracord use ( 1 week) bought the Fusion Knots book (just arrived). I am wondering how you make a necklace with the "Cross' attached. The cross I experimented with has various parts then joined, but I wish to incorporate the cross onto (into) a necklace.

Hello!

You could try gutting the paracord, then insert the chain into it.

That would give it weight, as for the end, a monkey fist with a marble will probably be ok.

I've been making various pull-handle devices using paracord and knots. I use them for zipper pulls, luggage markers and bell-ringers. They should work well for your ceiling fan pull. I have a sequence that I use to make my devices; however, I suspect that all you would really need to know is the knot that I use at the end.

I like the Manrope knot for making the ball-shape knot at the end. Here is a video that does a good job of showing how to tie the Manrope knot. It's a 4-stand knot, btw.

In case you want to use it, my process goes like this:

1> Using 2 pieces of paracord, middled and crossed, I then proceed to create about 4" of 4-strand round braid

2> Create a manrope knot

3> Tie a crown knot sinnet back up and over the round braid from step 1 - this thickens the handle to an ergonomic diameter.

Good luck,
Chappy
