Survival Keychains

#1:  Survival Key chain:  Defense, self defense tools

Bull Dog Self Defense Key Ring.
For safety reasons women often hold their keys between fingers
walking through parking lots or alleys to help fight off an
attacker, but this isn't a very effective method of warding off
attackers. The bull dog self-defense key chain, pictured left,
adds the correct tactical force necessary to put some hurt on
your attacker.  Just place fingers in the eyes and rest securely
in the palm of your hand. To defend yourself, strike at the eyes
of an attacker or any fleshy part of the body. Ideal for SHTF
scenarios, put one in your bugout bag ,too.

The bull dog self defense key chain doesn't look like a self
defense tool because it's in pretty pink (or blue or black), but
this personal protection tool will help you fend off close-range
attackers.

FURY Tactical Pressure Tip
The FURY Tactical SDK Self Defense Key chain 5.75-Inch with
Pressure Tip, pictured left in black, is around $5. This
lightweight aluminum key chain designed for self defense
weighs just 2 ounces! It provides the comfort of finger grooves
for a secure grip and control. It's very discreet when carried in
the hand, which means attackers are unlikely to see your self-
defense weapon and you are better able to respond. Jab the key
chain to key parts of an attacker's body, causing non-lethal
shock and pain to ward off the attack. Keep your keys and self
defense all together with this must have tactical defense tool/

Pepper spray Key Ring (self defense, chemical aided):
The Sabre Red Spray is eight to 86 percent hotter than other
pepper sprays on the market.
Made in the USA, this compact
pepper spray has earned the trust of the New York Police
Department, U.S. Marshals, and thousands of police
departments worldwide. With up to 25 shots, you can protect
yourself against multiple threats with Sabre Red. The 0.54-
ounce canister offers a range of ten feet to provide protection
at a safe distance and its ballistic stream delivery reduces the
chance of wind blow-back.

Stun Gun Key Ring (self-defense, power surge):
Pictured right, the StreetWise key chain sized stun gun is half
the size, and all the power. Although the S.M.A.C.K. is about
half the size of a normal stun gun, it has more power than most
models on the market today.

#2 Survival Key Chain: fire starter.
When SHTF will you be able to make fire based on what's on
your keychain? Left, is a humorous commode firestarter to
ensure you'll be able to do just that. Having a BIC lighter, a
ferrocium rod or a magnesium firestarter attached to our key
chain is among the most basic of prepper comforts.

#3: Survival Key chain: Micro-tool / multi-tool key rings.
Why settle for a key chain with only one function? Gerber, Swiss
Tech and others have combined tools making them versatile and
compact:

  • Gerber key chain tool: The Gerber key ring tool pictured
    immediate right features a compact design that includes
    three blades. Blade folds out for use and in for storage. It
    also features a bottle opener and a pry bar and it's
    equipped with cross and flat drivers.

  • Swiss + Tech: Swiss+Tech tools have a patented, quick-
    release, integrated locking system that attaches to any key
    ring, thereby eliminating the need for an additional ring or
    belt holster. These innovative, high-quality, light-weight
    products fulfill a common need--having the tools you need
    when you need them. They make a great gift:

  • Swiss+Tech key chain Multi-Tool (19-tools): Pictured
    immediate right, the SwissTech key chain comes with 19
    tools in a single, portable key ring tool! The 19-in-1 multi-
    tool fits on your key ring, and comes equipped with the
    following tools: six screwdrivers, two hex wrenches, pliers,
    wire cutter, wire stripper, wire crimper, hand drill, file,
    bottle opener, two rulers (mm and inch), and two ruler
    extensions. Unlike all other multi-function tools, many
    Swiss+Tech tools have a patented, quick-release,
    integrated locking system that can attach to any key ring,
    thereby eliminating the need for an additional ring or belt
    holster.

  • Swiss+Tech key chain Multi-Tool (5-in-1 tools):
    BodyGard 5-In-1 protects you in vehicle and personal
    emergencies. BodyGard combines five individual devices
    into one compact unit to ensure your personal safety.
    Featuring an automatic glass breaker, safety-blade seat
    belt cutter, sonic alarm, flashing red distress light and
    bright-white LED flashlight, the BodyGard 5-in-1 Emergency
    Tool is specifically designed to help drivers escape from
    their vehicles when the windows or doors fail to operate
    due to vehicle damage, fire or submersion.'

  • Swiss+Tech key chain Multi-Tool (6-tools): Pictured
    lower left, the Swiss+Tech Utili-Key 6-in-1 is an ultra-light,
    durable, and precision-crafted 6-in-1 mini-tool that
    features a straight knife blade and a serrated cutting
    surface, a flat screwdriver, a Phillips screwdriver, a micro-
    sized screwdriver, and a bottle opener. It weighs just 0.5
    oz. The tool makes minor repairs, assemblies,
    installations, and hundreds of jobs an easy undertaking.
    The patented quick-release design easily snaps to your key
    ring, and just as easily releases for multiple everyday
    tasks.

  • Swiss +Tech Keychaing (7-tools): The Key Ring Multi-
    Tool, pictured left, is a 7-in-1 offers a range of handy tools
    on your key chain that are with you when you need them
    including an LED flashlight, Phillips screwdriver, knife, awl,
    bottle opener, flat screwdriver and key ring. Each tools
    snaps into position for stability, and the built-in flashlight
    with a soft-squeeze on/off button and an ultra-bright,
    100,000+-hour LED lights your work. Replaceable batteries
    are included.

#4 Survival Key chain: Seatbelt cutter (escape):
Designer Ray Kirk has put his spin on the concept of an
emergency strap cutter with his new K.E.R.T. (Keying Emergency
Rescue Tool). Now you can have a razor sharp seatbelt cutter
always at the ready hanging on your key ring. This nifty little
tool also excels in cutting webbing, or fibrous materials, when
needed. It features a screwdriver, oxygen tank opener, bottle
opener and 1/4" hex wrench. This is a pocket sized tool that is
designed to make your life easier, maybe prevent a headache or
two and perform necessary emergency tasks. The K.E.R.T.
comes with a form fitted vinyl slip-sheath. Don't be caught
unprepared, stay safe and put one on your key chain today.

#5: Survival Key chain: Military can Openers.
Military can openers, pictured right, ensure you'll always be able
to open a can. In desperate times in an urban environment this
could be a lifesaver, though there are prepping methods to open
a can without a can opener.

So what's on your key ring?
Your world can change in an instant and your ability survive
depends on the things you carry everyday with you whether
you're headed to the grocery store, the office, a hike or a long
trip. (Preppers call this
Every Day Carry or EDC.)

What to carry on your key chain is a personal decision based on
your vulnerabilities and strengths and how much you're willing
to hold on your key chain for everyday carry. There are many
tools to hold it all together, including:

  • Aircraft cable: The durable and strong aircraft cable loop,
    pictured right, unscrews to allow many items to fin on your
    key chain.

  • Multipurpose Suspension Clip. Also picture right, the
    multipurpose suspension clip.

Happy Endings...
There's a long list of things you could carry on your key chain,
but ultimately, you must weigh in on the issue of bulk and
practicality. One thing's for sure, you can prepare to live happily
ever after by planning a few essentials for your survival.

Remember these things:

  • Security: If non-lethal self defense is ultimately your goal,
    then you'll want to make the bull-dog key chain (or other
    probing tactical tool) your primary survival key ring tool. If
    you can't easily grab this portion of your keys (because
    you've weighed down your key chain with too many
    gadgets); then this would be va useless addition to your
    key chain. You can always have a second key chain for your
    other survival gear in the purse or backpack.

  • Checkpoint Charlie: If you're frequently headed to certain
    checkpoints, such as a court of law, or even the social
    security office, you won't be able to bring a key chain knife,
    for example. Make sure your gear is TSA-compliant.

Start by considering all the things that you could put on your
keychain, and then narrow the list to what is essential for you.
