How Survival Straps Can Help You in an Emergency
Survival Straps are bracelets or other gear that are made from the same material that’s used for parachute cords. This type of cord is extremely lightweight and very comfortable to wear.
To say that it’s strong is a definite understatement. This cord is woven together tightly and is attractive enough that many people wear the bracelet as a piece of custom jewelry. They come in different sizes and colors and have a multitude of uses.
They can be used as a medical bracelet and a steel tag inscribed with the owner’s name and medical condition is woven to the front of the material.
The bracelets can also be made to show military support including for fallen soldiers. They can be customized to honor certain individuals and can also be customized with photos of your family.
The paracord bracelets have many uses in the event of an emergency. You get about 16 feet of the paracord when you need to use it. If you have to use the cord, you simply press the quick release on the end, tug the woven piece and disassemble it within seconds.
People have used the bracelets to rescue people caught in water, to save drowning victims and even as a tourniquet. They’ve been used as a sling by soldiers in dire situations. The cord can be unraveled to secure provisions and keep them shut tightly against marauding animals.
Survivalists love the bracelets because of the multiple uses they offer. Not only can they be used to save a life, but they can also be used to fix a shelter. For example, the cord can be unraveled to tie down a tent or cut and used to tie tree branches together in order to form protection against the elements.
They can be used to tie items to your vehicle if you need to bug out in a hurry. They can be used to secure a door or as fishing line if you need to fish to supply food for yourself. They’re strong enough to be used as a snare in hunting. In the event that someone injures a bone, the cord can quickly be used to fasten a splint.
The cost of the bracelets are well worth it because if you do have to use it in an emergency, some manufacturers will replace the bracelet with a new one if you send a note and tell them what happened.
