New Tools

Postby CavWarrior » Sun Sep 14, 2014 10:30 pm

Let's use this to show the new tools we've found to augment our survival gear.

I found this the other day while looking around. It's called the Paracord SpoolTool. It can hold 100' of paracord. It has a built in cutter and a place to put a small Bic lighter. I bought two to keep in the truck.

I've seen those on Amazon.
Look pretty cool. I was a little taken aback at the $20+ price tag...
They're quality though huh?

Most definitely. Really sturdy. They were worth the price to me. I didn't just want to bundle a few hundred feet of paracord in the truck. This gives me the perfect way to store it. Add in the cutter and it's a no brainer to me.

I don't quite get the fusing notches but other than that looks like a winner.
I hate untangling cord

The fusing notches allow one person to hold the paracord and fuse two ends together without difficulty.

I wasn't sure what you were saying so I did a quick search and what do you know, I turned up this

You know oddly enough I have never done that.
Just didn't occur to me.

Pretty cool.
I'm still looking for a perimeter security device that uses light instead of just sound. I can't come up with anything available to regular ol civilians. Just for use at night so I know the direction of the threat. All I have now is a device that uses 209 primers.

My idea of a perimeter security device is spelled claymore.

Do you mean a light inside indicating an intruder on the perimeter?

Nope. Something to directly connect to the trip wires.
