Master list of 50 survival gadgets you forgot to buy

Just when you thought you had about everything you need for
survival, comes a list of 50 survival tools you forgot to buy.

reppers, survivalists and homesteaders can overlook many
things. There are fifty survival gadgets in all to improve your
chances for survival or make life off grid easier.

List of 50 Survival tools and gadgets you
forgot to buy
Following is a list of 50 survival gadgets you forgot to buy
(bookmark this essential prepper's list)...

#1: Fire Blanket.
One of the most overlooked preps is a fire blanket. The fire
blanket pictured at the top of the page has DuPont X-12 fire
retardant. The fire blanket will help smother small fires by
reducing the amount of oxygen available to the fire. Ideal for
grease fires where water will only make things worse. Another
use for a fire blanket is if you live or work in a high-rise. Wrap
the blanket around you for escape from a fire! See picture right.
Keep one by the bedside and the other at work.

#2: Emergency Escape Mask.
While preppers often have a gas mask, many neglect to carry
with them an emergency escape mask. An emergency escape
mask is a single use item intended to help you escape from an
attack scene or a burning building with the ability to breathe
without inhaling smoke or fumes.  

Unlike a gas mask, an emergency escape mask is small enough
to fit in your pocket, brief case, purse, glove compartment, and
you can sew into jackets!  Picturd immediate left, the Breath of
Life emergency escape mask provides 15-20 minutes protection
against smoke, dust, debris and certain biological and chemical
compounds. This is a particularly important survival item for
preppers who live or work in high rise buildings, and for airline
travelers. Pack one in your get home bag!

#3: Self Defense Key Chain.
Be on high alert and ready to handle anything with a self-
defense key chain. Simple and effective, the
bulldog self
defense key chain is an overlooked prepper self-defense idea
for close range contact. Imagine walking in the city with a
bugout bag: the wares on your back will make you a target and
you need to be ready to handle anything!

#4: Kelly Kettle Stainless Steel Volcano stove.
The Kelly Kettles are an essential element of any emergency
preparedness plan since in an emergency or disaster situation
the most important part of survival is being able to obtain pure
water. Without access to other types of fuel such as gas or
propane, it may be difficult to get pure water. A Kelly Kettle is
a convenient quick way to heat up water for hydrating food, or
to make a cup of coffee. It will deliver about 7 cups of hot
water in just a few minutes. The Kelly Kettle is not just a
kettle, it's a stove!

#5: Toothache Kit.
Nothing bites worse than tooth pain (and this simple prep is
something many forget)! Take heed and plan for your dental
needs at minimum with a topical gel to minimize toothe pain.
An easy prep is the tooth ache kit to directly deal with tooth
pain, and the popular Dental Medic kit, which is a complete
dental first aid kit for your bugout bag. Get more ideas on
dental aids for preppers.

#6: Analog Thermometer.
An analog thermometer takes longer than a digital, but you'll
never run out of batteries. Pictured right, a geratherm mercury
free oral thermometer for temperature measurement is a
traditional shake down glass analog thermometer, and makes
excellent backup to have in your
prepper's first aid kit.

#7: Ammonia Inhalants.
Ammonia inhalants act like smelling salts of days gone by to
instantly revive someone who is undergoing trauma shock.
Pictured in the green box, right, ammonia inhalants is another
easily overlooked of
preps for your first aid kit.

#8: Quiet Generator.
It almost doesn't seem possible, and yet it is possible to have
quiet generator. The Goal Zero Yeti 150 with Nomad 20, is a
quiet, portable solar powered generator for base camp, cabins
and unexpected outages. What's more, the Goal Zero Yeti 400
Solar Generator allows you to live life off the grid, camp in
luxury, or power through an outage without the noise and fumes
of traditional back-up generators. Includes Yeti 150 Solar
Generator and Nomad 20 Solar Panel.

#9: Cigarette Lighter Converter.
Power your mobile devices in your car, boat or RV. This cup
inverter is ultra compact, plugs into your vehicles cigarette
lighter socket or attaches to a car battery and fits securely in
most vehicles cup holders.

#10: Stainless steel camping kettle.
As boring as this survival necessity might seem when talking
about survival gadgets, a kettle is an important tool for
purifying water. (
Avoid aluminum, though aluminum is light
weight.) Stainless steel is naturally antibacterial, durable and
has superior heating characteristics allow it to cook evenly over
any stove or flame, and there's no rusting either! Pictured right
is a classic kettle for camping and emergency preparedness.

#11: Composting Worms.
Nature's Wonder Workers (Uncle Jim's Worm Farm), pictured
immediate right, will help you improve your soil structure. Red
Worms are nature's wonder workers. Add some composting
worms to your garden or composting pile and reap the best
organic soil available without any harmful chemicals or
fertilizers. Healthy soil equates to a garden of plentiful fruits
and veggies.  Trout and pan fishermen see excellent results
using them as well.

uses peat moss in the base for  composting matter. There is no
holding tank and no pumpouts.  A composting toilet is self-

#13: Seed sprouter with sprouting seeds.
Sprouted seeds will provide your family or group with enzyme
nutrition to last the winter.  Be sure to get organic seeds to
sprout.Try sprouting beans, grains, lentils and peas. Practice
the art, because as simple as it seems to add water and wait,
problems may arise. The Victorio VKP1014 four-tray Kitchen
Seed Sprouter, pictured right, is an easy way to produce fresh,
high-quality organic sprouts in your own kitchen. Enjoy sprouts
in as little as 2 to 5-days. The Victor Trays are made from
strong, crack resistant, BPA free plastic,

#14: Crowbar.
A crowbar can be both a weapon and a device that might help
you get the survival gear you need. Looting may be necessary
for survival!

#15: Bump keys (auto).
Bump keys (lock picking tool) can open just about any lock, but
they are tools that are hard to find for obvious reason! Preppers
know where to look and that's why is happy
to help you gain quick and easy access  the same way
Emergency Medical Technicians get in to help trapped victims.
Pictured immediate right is the EMI Xtractor Auto Rescue Kit. It
comes with a holster.  Now this essential first-on-the-scene kit
for all rescue personnel, can be yours too. The Xtractor kit
includes the holster, a seat belt cutter, a trunk key, a Quik-Pik,
and a window punch.

#16: Bump Keys (building) / Lock Picking Guide.
Having a lock pick set is an unusual prep; however it could be a
lifesaver in world gone off grid.  Having one around before crisis
is a good idea as well. The broken key extractor and guide will
help you remove or pick key fragments that could be jammed
inside of door locks at home or office. It also replaces most
keys when you're in a bind. Knowledge is power, and you can
leverage that power with the guide, pictured immediate right.
Unconventional, yes, but that's why this is on the list of 50
survival gadget you forgot to buy.

#17. Wicks for candle making.
Likely your survival plan includes candles, but what will you do
when they run out? If you have rancid oil, which is no longer
appropriate for cooking, you can use the oil to make lamps.
how to make candles: it's a satisfying and easy prepper
skill to add to your hobby list. It's a wicked luxury!

#18: Multi-function tool.
The SwissTech, includes six tools: a flat screwdriver, a Phillips
screwdriver, a micro-Sized Screwdriver, a straight blade knife, a
serrated blade knife and a bottle opener. With this utili-key,
you can open bottles, packages, letters, and most screws. Read
more about
survival key chains.

#19: Fire-Safe Waterproof Chest.  
Another atypical prep is a firesafe.  Typically preppers don't give
much consideration to stashing paper documents or money in
one, but there is good reason to own one. The Fire-Safe
Waterproof Chest, pictured right, will keep your passport
protected from both fire and water. A continuous 360 degree
jamb and waterproof seal completely insulates the interior from
the threat of water invasion. Fire protection includes UL
classified fire endurance for 1/2 hour as well as ETL verification
for 30 minutes of fire protection of CDs, DVDs, USB drives, and
memory sticks, up to 1550 degree Fahrenheit.

#20: Goal Zero Lighthouse 250 Hub Lantern.

left-hand of the page, is a well designed lantern and USB power
device that has a hand crank on top. Bright, functional and
lightweight, this is the lantern to own. Plug in your cell phone
and stay connected.

#21: Jet Boil Flash cooking.
Jetboil Flash cooking will provide two cups of boiling water
within two minutes for cocoa, coffee, instant soup, or a gourmet
freeze-dried meal.  The JetBoil flash uses Jetpower fuel
canisters, which provide enough energy to boil 12 liters or 100
cups of water each. Jetboil is pictured left.

#23: Collapse DVD.
How is a movie a survival tool? Well, it's not just any survival
movie, "Collapse," is a documentary that will send your
prepping into high gear! As one reviewer wrote "It fueled my
fear to prepare my life now while collapse planning is still
possible. If it does not scare the bejesus out of you, check your
pulse." The movie will make preppers think even more closely
about our dependency on oil. Prime members on Amazon can
watch it for free now (click the link now, immediate right).
Never mind. You might not want to watch the movie if you're in
a good. Have a laugh instead and watch"It's a Disaster."

#24: Paracord for your shoe laces.
Even if you're not into making paracord bracelets, do yourself a
favor and replace your ordinary shoe laces with paracord for
shoes and boots. What can you do with paracord:
  • Start a fire with paracord and some sticks. It's all about
    friction, baby! Or tear it apart and use the fluff as tinder.
  • Cut zip tie handcuffs with paracord (hey, this spy trick
    could come in handy if you've been handcuffed).

#25: BIC lighter.
Mykel Hawke prefers a lighter as hist sure-start firestarter. You
may as well stock up on 50 BIC lighters. Buying them in bulk
amounts to about $1 each. A survivor of the Bosnia Civil War
said, "A generator is good, but 1000 BIC lighters are better. A
generator will attract attention if there's any trouble, but 1000
lighters are compact, cheap and can always be traded."
Certainly they will make a terrific item for trade!

#26: Crank lantern / Crank headlamp.
Seriously, you don't yet have a crank lantern? Even if you have
a crank lantern, you may not have known about the hand crank
headlamp, pictured immediate left. For around $7 you can own
this cool survival gadget.  Just one-minute of winding gives
approximately 90 minutes of light! Truly it is amazing. Crank it
up and be enlightened. Learn more about an
Pulse. They also make solar headlamps!

#27: Splinter remover.
Use splinter-out with the sterile point to gently loosen the skin
around a splinter until it can be lifted out. The beauty is that
they are sterile and disposable, helping to prevent infection.

#28. Needles and thread (and more safety pins).
Sewing is an often overlooked prepper necessity so head to the
fabric store today for clear thread, which will work for virtually
all your sewing needs. What's more, needles don't last for ever
and they are an inexpensive find at the dollar stores as a set or
as part of a mini sewing kit. These mini sewing kits, ideal for
bugout bags, usually include needles, thread and tiny scissors,
which is why a sewing kit is also #29 on the list of
99 ways to
spend a buck at the dollar stores.

#29: Treadle Powered Sewing Machine.
The Janome 712T treadle sewing machine, pictured immediate
right, allows you to sew with no electrical power. This is an off-

#32: Rubber hip boots (a.k.a. hip waders).
Rubber hip boots work well in all weather conditions to keep
you warm and comfortable while fishing or clamming.

#33: Spear gun or a flair gun.
A spear gun is on our list of weapons that are not weapons.

have become illegal. Likewise, a flair gun is on the list of
weapons that are not weapons.

#34: Book of Native, Edible Plants in your Area.
Take advantage of the natural food resources around you.

rods, and wires with ease using a bolt cutter. Get the survival
gear you need in a World Without Rule of Law.

#39: Bucket lid opener.
Surely, preppers know the importance of having multiple can
openers on hand, but few preppers considered the importance
of a bucket lid opener for their bulk freeze dried preps. Prying
open an emergency bucket will be much easier with the
appropriate lid opener, as the red one pictured right.

#40: Survival Knife Multi Tool.
No list of survival items would be complete without listing a
knife. We know you have several knives in your arsenal, but did
you know there are distinct features of a "survival knife"? See

Multitool and boost your survival skills! The Skeletool boasts a

that's what the Skeletool is all about. Many multi tools have

basis. Conversely, pocket knives are light and streamlined, but
they render themselves useless when the task calls for a more
versatile tool. Enter the new Skeletool platform, offering

necessity for all emergency and rescue professionals, and a real
luxury for preppers.

#44: Telephone with a LAN line.
Have you abandoned your LAN line to save money and go
wireless? There are several good reasons go back and get a
retro cool LAN line and get yourself a regular phone:
  • Cell phone towers don't respond well after a disaster.
    Cell phones will be jammed after a major disaster! It has
    happened before and it will happen again.
  • 911 can hone your location: The problem with cell phones
    is that 911 can't hone your location because you're a
    moving target, whereas 911 easily hones your location to
    your address. In an ordinary situation, you'll want the
    emergency responders to get to your locale quickly.
  • Never misplace your phone: If you've ever lost your cell
    phone, you will appreciate always knowing where your
    phone is located where you've plugged it.
  • Cell phone operation: Every cell phone operates a bit
    differently, which may be a bit challenging for family
    members who are older or younger.
  • LAN lines generally do better in emergencies. Even in an
    ordinary blackout, your phone will work, though this won't
    be the case in an EMP. Your battery may run out on the
    cell phone, but you'll always have access to an ordinary
  • Fidelity. The top reason to keep the LAN line is for the
    convenience of maintaining one telephone number for the
    family. It's hard to part with the number your friends and
    family have memorized.

storage space for your preps with furniture stilts placed
selectively under the beds. Pictured left in mahogany, bed
lifters raise your bed in minutes, giving you a space-efficient
storage area, which will in turn leave you more room for your
preps. These solid wood bed risers can be stacked to give you
even more underbed storage space. These bed risers fit casters,
square and round bed posts. One set of blocks will raise your
bed 2 3/4" to 3 1/2". Add another set of blocks to gain up to 7"
in height!

#48: Space saver vacuum bags.
With all the survival gear you've amassed, you'll need a way to
store your wares. You'll triple your storage space with Space
Saver bags, pictured right. The best part is that the gear inside
will stay warm and dry mitigating flood damage. They are
airtight, waterproof, and reusable! They also protects against
bugs, moths, dirt, mildew and odors.

#49: Bicycle parts.
Bikes will be among the most valuable possessions in an off-
grid world. Consider
bugging out by bike! The bicycle will be an
important vehicle after an EMP event or in extreme economic
disasters when fuel is outrageously out priced. Keep your
bicycle in top shape and ensure you have the following:
  • inner tube backups and pump
  • bike chain links (pay attention to the size of the chain Link
    before ordering)
  • chain oil
  • tools to repair

#50: Bidet or Perineal Irrigation Bottle.
When SHTF and you start using your toilet paper reserves, the
day will come when you don't have a single roll left. What then?

yourself a bidet (if you have an ample water supply) or craft
one yourself with a spray bottle. Read
