My Survival/Urban Keychain





Introduction: My Survival/Urban Keychain

This is my survival/urban keychain, it is my own design that I have been working on over the past few years! Some of the items, such as the screwdriver would not be very helpful when deserted on a desert island, however my paracord key fob might be slightly more helpful! This is still a temporary design so if you have any ideas of what else I should add please comment below.

Step 1: Back-Up USB

This is my back-up USB, I store important photos, birth certificates, passports and other important documents on it.

Step 2: Photon Freedom Micro-Light

As well as being super bright and compact, the Photon Freedom Micro-Light has 4 different survival settings and a dimmer which makes this flashlight very practical for everyday use. It is a little pricey compared to other flashlights but it will last years.

Step 3: IPhone Sim Card Opener

I am sure a lot of you think this is a strange tool to put on a keychain but it has been more useful than any of the other tools over the years! Whether I am helping my friend take out her sim card, or I am trying to get something out of a hole, this little tool has been extremely helpful and I highly recommend you carry one with you everywhere!

Step 4: Paracord Fob

This item is pretty self explanatory. It is my paracord keychain. Overall the whole thing holds about 5 feet of paracord! Below is the link to MeZillch's video on how to make it.

Step 5: True Utility Coin Holder

In my True Utility Coin Holder I don't actually hold coins! Sometimes I use it as a Gorilla Tape Dispenser, or as a mini survival kit itself. I have wrapped glow in the dark tape around it so I can see it in dark conditions. 

Step 6: True Utility Mini Driver

This mini screwdriver is amazing! It has four mini bits which are held inside the shaft. You can even put a coin through the slot and use it as a mini handle! It has a neat design and it is an affordable price.

Step 7: Lifesystems 108 Db Whistle

This is a great little aluminium whistle which can reach up to 108 Db! It has been very helpful over the years!

Step 8: And Last But Not Least... My Keys!

Let's face it, a keychain without keys is not a keychain! So, I felt that my keys needed a mention too!

    What type of key is THAT?

    Is the flash drive encrypted? If it's not, anybody could take the flash drive and access the documents on it.

    Speaking of keys, I think a UtiliKey by Swiss Tech could be added as the first 'key'

    Good idea! I like that! I was thinking about purchasing the True Utility Key Tool, but I think that this tool is much better for the price.

    I have both, and they are marginally useful. A Leatherman Style is really slim and has almost all the same features as a Victorinox Classic. And I find the screwdriver on it far superior for glasses than the Vic, Utilikey, or TU Key Tool.

    I will show this to my better half. Maybe he will make me one! Thanks for sharing and have a beautiful day!
