6 Tools to Survive Anything

Some tools are so versatile you can’t even begin to list all of the things they are useful for. In fact, 9 times out of 10, you won’t even know what you’ll need them for until it happens. Here are the 6 tools every self respecting prepper should have in large quantities and always available.

Survival Gear Duct Tape1. Duct Tape

The fame of duct tape has taken on a life of it’s own. What can you even say about it? (or it’s big brother Gorilla Tape, from the folks that brought you Gorilla Glue)

Survival Gear Zip Ties2. Zip Ties

From handcuffs to lashings and a thousand other ways to tie stuff together, you should have a stockpile of zip ties in every shape and size.

Survival Gear WD-403. WD40

“If it moves and it shouldn’t; use Duct Tape.  If it should move and it doesn’t; use WD40″

4. Rope

5. Knife

6. Pry Bar

Stanley Fuctional Utility Baror Utility Bar. You can pry, hammer, lift, smash, and just generally mess stuff up. (I need to do a full write up on the Stanley Functional Utility Bar or “FUBAR”)
