Designed, developed, and packaged by Survival Resources™, the PTSK-24003 Pocket Tin Survival Kit™ was designed so you could easily carry a basic survival kit conveniently in a pocket. It is an individual, mini kit, packaged inside a sturdy tin. It is supplied with 10' of parachute cord with instructions on how to wrap it around the tin. We purposely left room inside the tin so you could add a few small items, such as water purification tablets and a water bag. This will be discussed later on this page.

Assembled In America

Spark Lite with 6 Tinder Quick Fire Tabs

For Fire & Light, this kit contains an orange Spark-Lite™ Firestarter for one handed fire starting in the event one hand is injured. Six (6) Tinder-Quick™ Fire Tabs are also enclosed to ensure you have dry, effective tinder when you need to start a fire. Tinder-Quick™ is an all-weather fire starter that even lights when wet. Each fire tab is specially treated to high standards to ensure the cotton is waterproof and provides more than adequate burn times for starting fires (each tab burns 2-3 minutes).


Mini Rescue-Flash Signal MirrorFox 40 Micro Whistle

For Signaling, this kit contains a Mini Rescue-Flash™ Signal Mirror made of durable LEXAN® polycarbonate with a mil-spec retro-reflective aiming aid for one handed use. Visible over 20 miles, instructions are printed on the back. The mirror is covered by a protective film to prevent scratches while stored in the Pocket Tin Survival Kit. It also has a Lanyard hole. The kit also includes an orange FOX 40® Micro Whistle which is a Triple-frequency, extremely loud signaling whistle, and exceeds SOLAS and USCG specification.


20mm Button Compass

For Navigation, we have included a good quality 20mm Button Compass. It is liquid filled and has a one hour luminous dial. Its working temperature range is -10º F to 110º F and is water resistant to 30 feet (9 meters). Dimensions: 20mm (slightly larger than 3/4") diameter x 9.9mm thick.


Parachute Cord Orange

Because of the size of this kit, it obviously would be difficult to include any shelter items. However, this kit does include a 10' hank of parachute cord. It is rescue orange, Type III, 7 strand, 550 Cord, made here in America by a certified U.S. Defense Dept. manufacturer. It's ideal for many survival purposes such as lashing to make shelters, etc. The shroud is made of continuous filament nylon. It has seven inner lines which can be removed and used for fishing line, sewing, making nets, lashing, or many other purposes. 550 lb. tensile strength.


For the purpose of collecting food in a survival situation, this kit includes the following:

Vial with tackle and braided line

A custom vial with a tight fitting cap holds the fishing tackle described below. The sewing needle and safety pins described later on this page are also contained in this vial. Many kits out there are provided with monofilament line which has terrible memory when you try to unwind it from a tight bobbin. This leaves you with a mess when you try to use it. Therefore, we have included 50' of Power-Pro® 20 lb. braided line, wound on a bobbin without retaining memory.

(Note: Individual components can be substituted for equal or superior quality items)

Snare Wire A basic component of most survival kits is 24 Gauge Brass Snare Wire. 24 Gauge is strong, easily molded, and a good diameter for survival snaring. This kit contains 6' which can also be used to secure a gill net, lashing and repairing items, etc.


For knives and tools, this kit contains the following items: Note: we highly recommend that you check local laws to determine if the knife included in this kit is legal.

Folding Utility Knife and Saw

1. The folding Utility Knife is a pocket sized light to medium duty cutting tool which is great for survival kits. This folding razor knife is approved for military use and is issued NSN 6515-01-363-1212, and is manufactured to military specification under MilSpec #MIL-R-365408, thus making it a very high quality item. It weighs less than 8 grams with a closed length of less than 3 inches. The knife is a three bevel, hollow ground, shaving quality stainless steel razor blade with a plated steel rib to secure the blade. The handle is made from medium impact plastic. Dimensions: 2-3/4" x 5/8" x 3/16".

2. The folding Pocket Survival Saw is a pocket size utility and survival saw that uses a Swiss made 18 tpi High Speed Steel blade that is 2-3/4" long and tough enough to handle wood and metal cutting. Handle is made from medium impact plastic.


Because this is a "non-expiring" survival kit, no water purification is included. However we highly recommend that you add water purification. Additional room was purposefully left in this "Pocket Tin Survival Kit™" so you could add a few small items. Our suggestion would be to add water purification tablets, and some form of container to hold water, such as an oven bag. We describe how to use an oven bag for this purpose under our "Survival Kit Tips & Ideas" section. CLICK HERE to see those instructions. The following photos show that four (4) Chlorine Dioxide tablets and an Oven Bag will fit inside the tin (Note: They are not included with the kit).

Chlorine Dioxide in TinOven Bag in Tin


Fresnel Magnifier Lense A Fresnel Magnifier, which measures 2" x 3.25", can be used as an additional firestarter on sunny days, or as a magnifier when glasses are lost or broken.
Duct Tape Strip For minor repairs, and a million other uses, a flat pack of blaze orange duct tape is included. It measures 2" wide x 6" long.
Paper and Pencil A Mini Pencil is also included, with two (2) sheets of waterproof paper measuring 2.125" x 2.75" each.


A sheet is included with directions for use of the Spark-Lite™ Firestarter and the Tinder-Quick™ Fire Tabs. We also include instructions for wrapping the tin with the parachute cord, in the event you want to carry it that way.


This kit does not include any first aid. We highly recommend that the AMK Pocket Medic, or one of our AMK Ultra Light first aid kits be purchased and carried with the Pocket Tin Survival Kit.


Because of minimal room, no emergency food has been included in this kit .


This concludes the contents of the PTSK-24003 - Pocket Tin Survival Kit™. As you can see, even with the minimal size, it contains items from many of the component groups. The Pocket Tin Survival Kit™ measures 3-3/4" long x 2-3/8" wide x 7/8" deep. It weighs 3.5 oz.
