As a long time fan of MacGyver, I found it fitting to create my own kit that would allow me to carry a few essential items that can be used in a variety of ways. I decided to build this with just the stuff I have in my room. You will be surprised be how many scenarios this little kit can assist you in getting out of, or into.
Step 1: Materials
What You Will Need:
4 Rubber Bands
4 Index Cards
1 ½ Meters of Thin, Strong, Black Thread
Step 2: Assembly of the Kit
I first started by bending my index cards in half, then I applied my paperclips all the way across the cards. I then wrapped my thread around a piece of cardboard to keep it from being tangled up. After finishing this up I folded the card in half, then wrapping my rubber bands horizontally, vertically, horizontally, and vertically again. You can easily add more paperclips, cards, rubber bands, or thread. I always keep my Swiss army knife on me, when I am outside of school of course, so I have a lot covered with just the stuff in my pockets.
Step 3: Finished
This kit is extremely small, but is customizable, and versatile down to the very end. I hope this kit can get you out of a jam if necessary. Please leave a comment
