Student Veterans Club Fundraiser: Survival Bracelets

Survival Bracelet

The Student Veterans Club are selling Survival Bracelets as a fundraiser.  They are $6.00 a piece.

Top Ten Uses for Survival Bracelets

1) Well, after you take it apart, you should have 7 to 10 feet of paracord with which to form a makeshift belt or suspenders.

2) Repair torn or broken equipment either by sewing or tying the pieces together securely.

3) Rig a makeshift tow rope. A single length of paracord has been tested to handle 550 lbs of weight, so wrap it securely 10 times and you have the ability to pull 5500 lbs.

4) Securely tie down items to the top of a vehicle, or to protect them from a wind-storm.

5) Replace your shoe laces. Just burn the ends and thread them through.

6) Replace a broken Zipper pull.

7) Tie up a tarp or poncho to make an awning to keep out of the sun or rain.

8) Build a shelter using sticks or by tying up the corners of a poncho or tarp.

9) Secure your boat or raft.

10)  Tie things to your backpack with it so you can carry more stuff - hands free.
