Adrienne Wimmer

You never know when your SurvivalStraps gear will come in handy. Our American-made gear is built from military grade 550 paracord and is so tough it can move 200 pound logs to rescue people who are pinned under them! Read Adrienne Wimmer’s story below of how her Survival Strapped saved her 4th of July. We’re glad she was strapped!

Hello my name is Adrienne Wimmer and my husband and I purchased the bracelet. As a medic it was an extra tool for me. Unfortunately I had to use it this 4th of July.

We live in Currituck, North Carolina on the water. We had a horrible storm come through a few days before blowing debris all over. On July 4th we were swimming and jetsking and tubing when my 13 year old daughter Alexis stepped on something very sharp. It ended up being a huge log weighing well over 200lbs! The adults and my daughter were floating it up to remove it when it slipped and pinned her lower leg under the water. She started to panic and was screaming so I undid my strap and made a loop and tied a knot slipped it around the end of the logg and she was free. Without this things could have been very bad and she could have been seriously hurt. Thank god I had this. Pictures attached of the water. The log out of the water with strap attached and my daughter.

Thanks,

Adrienne Wimmer
