You might wonder why you didn’t think of it, or realize why it’s best that you didn’t.
Ah, duct tape, is there anything it can’t do? Okay, maybe there’s a few things, along with stuff it shouldn’t be used for, but for everything else, that silvery roll of adhesive tape is a godsend.
1. Make Handcuffs
With enough duct tape that bad guy is sure to be held until the cops can get to him.
2. Make a Spear
Strap a knife to an old rake stick and you are ready for hunting.
3. Repair Your Shoes
Your shoes will eventually wear out and this will be enough to get you home.
4. Splint a Leg
A broken leg or arm can be wrapped with padding and and supported with sticks then topped off with duct tape.
5. Prevent Glass Windows From Shattering During Storms
Just tape em up Bubba.
6. Make a Hammock
And just relax.
7. Hem Your Pants
No time to hem your new jeans? Fake it with a strip of duct tape.
8. Catch Pesky Flies and Bugs
Roll off a few foot-long strips of duct tape and hang them from a branch or your tent or cabin rafters.
9. Mark a Trail
Use it to blaze a trail or signal for rescue, especially if your DT is brightly colored or reflective.
10. Make a Hat
Be creative with this one.
11. Make a Belt
When you are starving in the wild, and your pants start falling down.
12. Make an Arrow
Tear off a few 5-inch pieces, and a long edge of one piece to the arrow shaft, fold the tape lengthwise, and stick the other long edge of that piece to the arrow.
13. Make a Bikini
If you are roughing it there is no reason you shouldn’t be able to swim and enjoy yourself.
14. Last and Probably The Most Useful. Keep Your Husband Quiet
Place a strip over the mouth. You might also need to put handcuffs on his hands to prevent him from removing to tape for his mouth.
So there ya have it and be sure to check your supply of duct tape. You never know when you are going to need it.
WTR? (Why’s That Radass?)
Put simply, duct tape is a universal fix-it tool that a lot of people would agree is good for just about anything in the right conditions. If you watch The Breakfast Club you might even get another ide-…no, on second thought, scratch that.
