Light Duty Survival AnkletTM
Our Light Duty Survival Anklets are a big hit and a blast to wear. This is our lightest, thinnest model. They are more for fashion than survival and look incredible! With more than 50,000 color combinations to choose from, we are sure you will be able to come up with something that will match your personal style! They are also great to show support for your favorite team or cause.
The Light Duty Survival AnkletTM has the following features:
*Light Duty Paracord - We make the Light Duty Anklets standard with the inside strands of the paracord removed. We only use the outer casing of the paracord to make this version. This gives them a very sleek appearance. They are our thinnest, lightest version and measure about 1/2" wide. Removing the center strands from the paracord makes the breaking strength at about 200 pounds instead of the 550 pounds of the full paracord. The cord can still be useful in an emergency situation.
*If You Use It, We Replace It Policy - All our gear is designed so that in an emergency situation, you can unravel it and deploy the paracord for use. Don't hesitate to unravel your SurvivalStrap. If you do use your SurvivalStrap, simply send us your story and a picture of how it was used, and we will send you a new one, free of charge.
*Over 50,000 Color Combinations - We like to give our customers choices. Now you can choose from over 50,000 color combinations! Pick a color for the inside, a color for the edge, and now you can pick a color for a line down the center. This will give you a tri-colored anklet.
If you choose the same color for the inside and the edge, your Survival Strap will be built with one continuous piece of paracord. If you choose a different color for the inside and the edge, your Survival Strap will be built with two pieces of paracord that are almost equal in length. The optional center line is a piece of paracord that runs the length of the anklet and does not affect the center or edge cords.
*Stainless Steel Shackle Closure Option - Our shackle closure is made from extremely tough marine grade stainless steel. Besides looking incredible, it has the following features:
Adjustable - The stainless steel shackle makes our Survival anklets adjustable. We will build it for your specific ankle size. However, you can adjust it to wear it as loose or as tight as you would like. There are three settings for adjustment. Simply insert the shackle pin into whichever hole you would like to achieve the fit you are looking for.
Standard Break-Away Feature for Safety - Many of our customers love wearing our Survival Anklets, but are concerned wearing them around machinery, or anything they could get their anklet, and their leg, "hung up" on. Survival Straps anklets now come standard installed with a break-away pin. This pin is tough enough for everyday use, but it is designed to shear off and "break away" from your leg when a significant force is applied. This adds a safety factor to wearing your Survival Anklet.
Standard Stainless Steel Pin - Survival Straps are all about strength in every way. Because of this they also come standard with a marine grade stainless steel pin. You can choose to install the stainless pin, instead of the break-away pin, for added strength! Installing this pin gives the stainless shackle hundreds of potential uses in an emergency situation. Even if you wear your Survival Strap with the break away pin feature installed, you can keep the stainless pin handy if you need to deploy the paracord and the shackle in an emergency situation.
Rounded Knurled Pin - Both the break-away pin, and the stainless pins on the Survival Strap shackles are rounded. This helps to make sure they will not snag on anything like clothing. The pins are also knurled so that you can get a good grip while twisting them.
Stamped In Steel - Survival Straps is stamped into our stainless shackle closure. Just so you know who's got your back!!!
Side Release Buckle - Also available with a tough, plastic side release buckle instead of the stainless shackle.
Get the Perfect Size
1) Take a tape measure, string, or scotch tape and wrap it around your ankle to where the two ends touch and there isn’t any slack. Keep in mind this doesn’t need to be so tight that it cuts off your circulation, but merely a true ankle size without slack.
2) Mark this exact length on your string and use a ruler to determine your true ankle size.
3) Order this exact ankle size when checking out, and you are good to go!
Side notes: If you are in-between sizes, round down to the nearest size. Please remember not to compensate for slack as we do that here in-house based on your true size. Lastly, if you have any questions for our team please shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or give us a ring at 1-800-971-3360 and we will gladly walk through the steps with you.
What is Active Edge®
Where is Active Edge™ available?
Active Edge is exclusively available here at Survival Straps as an option on all our wearable products, at the full Active Edge website at Activeedgegear.com, and to the United States Department of Defense.
What is Active Edge™?
For Decades, doctors have prescribed pulsed electromagnetic field therapy (PEMFT) to treat a variety of conditions. In fact, the FDA has approved PEMFT devices to help heal broken bones, heal wounds, and treat pain and tissue swelling. These devices work to reduce pain and inflammation, improve energy and circulation, oxygenate blood and tissue, improve sleep quality and many other therapeutic benefits. But these benefits have always required the use of a machine. New technology from Active Edge™ is now enabling consumers to benefit from extremely low frequency treatments, "un-plugged", twenty four hours a day, simply by wearing a bracelet or necklace embedded with the technology.
Active Edge™ is the first technology capable of infusing and embedding electromagnetic frequencies into fabrics and other materials. Our technology has been tested at the University of Florida Health Shands Hospital, the United States Department of Defense labs, several medical professionals and in several independent labs.
Survival Straps® has obtained the exclusive worldwide rights to this technology, a scientifically proven, cutting-edge, proprietary, frequency technology developed here in America. When you order Active Edge™ as an option for your product it will be treated by our proprietary process that EMBEDS extremely low frequencies into the product itself.
What does it do?
When you wear an Active Edge treated product, medical experts believe that our technology safely stimulates the sympathetic nervous system, which increases blood flow, reduces inflammation and gives an uptick in oxygen intake. This helps the body to perform at a more optimal level in many ways.
What are the benefits?
Over the past several years there have been clinical trials performed on over 2500 people between the ages of 18 and 82 years old. We are also currently engaged in several trials with United States Department of Defense who has replicated our test results. 90% of people tested experienced a significant increase in flexibility, endurance, strength and balance. Many people also report improved sleep and pain reduction from ailments like arthritis, headaches, and other aches and pains.
Is it safe?
Yes. There have been zero negative side affects found within our clinical trials as well as in any of the military trials. In addition, Bureau Veritas, a worldwide accepted testing lab, has verified by standard test panel (6509)280-0040, that all standards and consumer protection regulations are passed. Our technology contains no toxins, allergens or harmful properties and is non-microbial. All tests comply with US and international testing regulations. However, we do not recommend that pregnant women and anyone with embedded electrical medical devices such as pacemakers use this technology. It has not been tested on these two groups of people.
Is it waterproof or washable?
Yes. The Active Edge treated products are still waterproof, washable and should last a lifetime, just like the non-treated products. The Active Edge™ treatment does not negatively affect the materials used in any way. The military paracord still has the same strength, look, feel, etc…
