Parachute Bracelet Uses: Repairs and Rescue
For the adventurers and the outdoorsmen, having a comprehensive utility belt seems like something out of a classic Batman movie. You make do with what you have and while you may not be able to own the car or the Bat-a-rang, there is something out there that is just as good. The Survival Strap bracelet is changing the way you prepare for hikes, diving, and off-road exploration. Made from woven paracord, the same nylon material that has been used to make parachutes for decades, Survival Straps can be worn for style and quickly unraveled in times of need.
If you are an adrenaline junkie who enjoys any parachute-related activity such as sky diving and kite boarding, then a Survival Strap bracelet should be your next investment. Capable of being used to make simple and advanced repairs, the Survival Strap may just be the thing that saves you from a ruined day on the water or a dangerous free fall.
REPLACE A SNAPPED LINE
Maybe you just purchased your first parachute kite online and the owner didn’t exactly go into detail about how he cared for it. You’re setting up your new kite and in the middle of straightening the lines, you see one snap in half. Your friends look at you as if to say, “Tough luck, buddy.” With the Survival Strap on your wrist, there’s no reason why you have to miss a windy day on the water. Simply unravel your bracelet, discard the snapped line, and run the paracord through to replace it. Now go enjoy yourself.
CRAFT A NEW HANDLE
There’s no other dire time of need than when you’re about to jump out of a plane or off of a mountain. In order to balance your weight, steer your direction, and help with landing, you absolutely need a strong set of guiding handles. Regardless of how it may happen, if you end up with a damaged or broken handle, you are going to run into some trouble. Hopefully, you’ll be able to catch it before you make the big jump. Either way, you’ll need to think on your feet. Remove your Survival Strap bracelet and get to work making a new handle for your parachute. Tie the paracord through the line to reestablish control, then loop the bracelet around itself to form a secure handle. It’s last minute but it’s life saving.
SAVE YOUR RISERS
After you make your leap from the plane or elevated location and you pull that cord, everything depends on the risers that the lines are attached to. As strong as they may be, accidents happen. A torn riser could mean a number of problems including a free spin while falling. Act fast and grab your Survival Strap bracelet in order to save your risers. There’s a good chance you may not even have to unravel the survival bracelet. Simply loop the line through the bracelet then attach the bracelet to your pack with the secure, built-in fastener. This will form a complete connection from pack to chute, ensuring you land safely.
