DIY Neck Harness

The most well known commercial neck harness costs around $40. For what amounts to a few straps and carabiners that's quite a lot. I decided to try to make my own. I did it for less than $10. I use it mostly for strengthening the muscles to reinforce proper posture. There is another DIY design out there but I decided to try to make mine look a little more professional.

Cost: $10
Project time: depends on if you use a machine or sew by hand
Difficulty: You have sew. If you don't know how it's easy to learn.

Tools Needed:
  • Sewing Needle or Sewing Machine
Materials Needed:
  • Lashing Straps or Towing Straps
  • Strong Thread like Upholstry thread
  • Duct Tape (optional)
  • 2 Carabiners
  • Velcro hook and loop

  1. Nice! I think a similar harness could be made from paracord--though it may not necessarily be adjustable.
