Duct Tape Answered

Ok, Ok, since this *is* and outdoors group/forum, and it *is* the nature of this website:

What is your favorite use for duct tape? I want to hear about and see pictures of your improvisation and creativity in the outdoors at its best, using, of course, duct tape.

Duct Tape goes almost everywhere with me. One use was for a cheap chair repair and I used it for several other projects as of a quick repair of a water hose we had and it held up long enough for my task(we did buy a new hose though) An as of what I use it for I say I use it for all my little home projects.

Oddly I don't always find a need for it. Only things I can come up with is things from this year.

  • Lazy quick patch for pool float
  • Cover outside of a beer bottle so I wont get shocked (leyden jar)
  • Hold the first and last coil of my tesla coils

That's about it :(

Could you make an instructable on the backpack pockets? I have an idea how to do them, but it would be better coming from an experienced duct tape person.

My main use it "emergency" repairs. If it moves and you don't want it to...duct tape it. If it is bleeding and you have no bandages and it is really a panic situation, duct tape it (don't do this if not an emergency, since removing the tape can just reopen and make the wound worse). ;-)

Failed Esperiment: Duck Tape Hammock. Went through 2 rolls of precious duck tape before scrapping the idea... Why did they have to take the duck tape?! Well, it's all better now, 'cuz I bought a 66 yard roll! and 50 yards of Industrial Strength! Time to move on to a Duck Tape Xbox 360 Console Skin... or not...

Well, since nobody has taken time to respond in the 30 seconds since i posted the topic, one of my favorite examples is when a friend of mine and I were backpacking and, having forgotten his belt, quickly fashioned himself a new one, complete with a very genius buckling system, all from duct tape. I will see if he can put up pictures, and maybe make an instructable, for his belt.
