16 USES FOR THE SURVIVAL REPAIR TAPE
- Arrows: Duct tape can be used as survival arrow fletching.
- Bandages: Use duct tape to make butterfly sutures by cutting two small strips and placing them on top of the wound.
- Leg Splint: Stabilize a broken or sprained ankle or leg with duct tape. Use two small yet sturdy branches or similar piece of wood as the brace for the splint.
- Water Bottle Repair: A strip or two of duct tape around a leaking water bladder or water bottle should prevent the loss of more life-saving liquid.
- Duct Tape Tourniquet: Place cloth over bare skin, if possible. Simply take the start of the roll and loop tape tightly around the wound about three times, making sure that there is no slack in the roll as you work.
- Cordage: Pull at least a foot of duct tape loose from the roll and twist is tightly to craft makeshift cordage to accomplish a plethora of survival tasks, such as constructing a shelter or crafting a trap or lasso.
- Arm Sling: Pull about two feet of duct tape away from the roll, and fold the strip down the middle until the adhesive side is no longer exposed.
- No-Sew Closures: Use strips of duct tape to hold shirts, jackets and pants in place if buttons or the cloth are torn.
- Glasses Repair: Wrap duct tape around broken glassed to temporarily repair them and prevent injury from walking around during an emergency.
- Temporary Shelter: Use strips of duct tape to attach tarps, trash bags, small plastic bags cast away as litter, and even leaves and branches together to construct an emergency shelter.
- Spears: Tape a knife to the end of a sturdy branch or found pipe to make a spear for hunting and self-defense.
- Hat Making: Use any materials at your disposal to create a cap to cover your head, attaching them all together with duct tape.
- Drinking Cup: Patience is required for this duct tape survival task. Cut two one foot strips of duct tape and affix them together, stick sides facing. Cut two six inch strips and affix them together in the same manner.
- Trail Markers: Wrap duct tape around a tree or branch to mark your path to prevent circling around aimlessly or to blaze a trail for others.
- Tent Repair: Duct tape can be used to temporarily repair tent poles, patch holes, or to keep a flap closed when a zipper breaks.
- Bug Catcher: Instead of buying “pest strips,” hang strips of duct tape in areas where there are flying insects. They will stick to the tape.
