Counterfeit EZ Jigs

Buy genuine USA Made! EZ Jig - the original bracelet making tool!

It has been brought to our attention that a company in China has begun offering a counterfeit version of our famous EZ-Jig Parachute Cord bracelet maker. While it is true that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, in this case it is imitation in form only.

Imitation EZ Jigs made with Scrap Pine & only come with 12mm buckles
Imitation EZ-Jig. Made in China.
This Chinese “DIY Paracord Bracelet” is made from the cheapest materials possible. Glued up scrap pine nailed together, it certainly will not stand hard use. Additionally, the nails could pull loose causing a hazard for young paracordists. It was shipped with only 12mm buckles attached.

Imitation EZ Jig held together with nails. Made in China.

Pepperell Braiding Company’s genuine EZ-Jig is made fromAmerican Rock Maple sourced from locally renewable forests. Manufactured in Bradford, PA, our EZ-Jig has proven to be the best.

We are the only manufacturer of Parachute Cord that offers a complete line of tools and accessories. Insist on Pepperell Braiding Company cord, tools and accessories and keep America Working!
