If you can’t make it with duct tape, you’re not using enough duct tape.
When things get crazy, like when you get stuck in the bush or when zombies overrun the planet, you’ll want to have a large stockpile of duct tape. You can build and repair pretty much anything with it. Here are 15 survival things you can make with duct tape that will help keep you alive and maybe make your miserable experience a little more comfortable.
1. A boat. The Mythbusters team proved duct tape boats can float.
2. A DIY field stretcher. Get two sticks, something to serve as a pillow, and tape it up like this:
3. Butterfly bandage strips. Cut some small strips of DT and use them to pull the skin on either side of the wound together.
4. A sling. It’s not pretty, but it’ll keep your busted arm elevated.
