These Toaster Cord Locks are made of high-strength Acetal plastic and are designed for exposure to the elements and temperature extremes. They fit cordage up to 1/8" and are ideal for parachute Cord. Because of the oval shaped hole you can actually thread two pieces fo parachute cord through the hole alongside each other.

Once you thread your cordage through the opening, all you have to do is pinch the cord lock tight to activate the spring. Package contains 6 cord locks.
Tarred Nylon Twine is often called "Bank Line" because it is used for making both bank and trot lines. However, because of its strength, it is great as a cordage for all types of survival situations, and because of its size, you can carry a lot in a kit. It can be used to build shelters, traps and snares, and a host of other chores. Being tarred, it doesn't rot, is excellent at holding knots, will not unravel, and is lightweight (which makes it easy to carry). We offer it in two (2) sizes and strengths. The #18 is a great size to include in kits and I have re-wound it on various items for carrying in a kit. The #36 is twice the diameter but twice the strength for those requiring a stronger cordage.
#18 Bank Line comes on a roll of 250 feet with an approx. tensile strength of 160 pounds.
#36 Bank Line comes on a roll of 122 feet with an approx. tensile strength of 320 pounds.
LATEX RUBBER TUBING

Like Duct Tape, you should have several feet of this stuff in your kit. Amber in color, this tubing has a 5/16" outside diameter, 3/16" inside diameter, with a wall thickness of 1/16". Maximum length for a single piece is 20', and any amount over 20' will be divided into 2 or more sections.

P-38 & P-51 CAN OPENER
The P-38 and P-51 can openers are a must have for an emergency if you need to open cans. The P-38 was originally developed in 1942 and was issued to U.S. troops so they could open canned C-rations. Later a larger model was developed, called the P-51 which is easier to use because of its larger size. The P-51 is ideal for those #10 cans used in emergency preparedness freeze dried food. Don't be caught without a can opener when an emergency situation occurs. Both the P-38 and the P-51 come in a two pack.
