Key Chain Survival
What's on your key ring could save your life!

What's on your key chain for survival? Give careful thought to the
Everyday Carry (EDC) for your key chain.

Survival often depends on improvising tools in your possession.
With a keyring you can fight for your life!

A key chain could provide you with the tools necessary for self-
defense, and many more survival situations, including escape to
safety, firestarting, first aid, signaling, navigation, and even
morale building.

Survival Keychains

#1:  Survival Key chain:  Defense, self defense tools.

Bull Dog Self Defense Key Ring.
For safety reasons women often hold their keys between fingers
walking through parking lots or alleys to help fight off an
attacker, but this isn't a very effective method of warding off
attackers. The bull dog self-defense key chain, pictured left, adds
the correct tactical force necessary to put some hurt on your
attacker.  Just place fingers in the eyes and rest securely in the
palm of your hand. To defend yourself, strike at the eyes of an
attacker or any fleshy part of the body. Ideal for SHTF scenarios,
put one in your bugout bag ,too.

The bull dog self defense key chain doesn't look like a self
defense tool because it's in pretty pink (or blue or black), but this
personal protection tool will help you fend off close-range

FURY Tactical Pressure Tip
The FURY Tactical SDK Self Defense Key chain 5.75-Inch with
Pressure Tip, pictured left in black, is around $5. This lightweight
aluminum key chain designed for self defense weighs just 2
ounces! It provides the comfort of finger grooves for a secure grip
and control. It's very discreet when carried in the hand, which
means attackers are unlikely to see your self-defense weapon
and you are better able to respond. Jab the key chain to key
parts of an attacker's body, causing non-lethal shock and pain to
ward off the attack. Keep your keys and self defense all together
with this must have tactical defense tool/

Pepper spray Key Ring (self defense, chemical aided):
The Sabre Red Spray is eight to 86 percent hotter than other
pepper sprays on the market.
Made in the USA, this compact
pepper spray has earned the trust of the New York Police
Department, U.S. Marshals, and thousands of police departments
worldwide. With up to 25 shots, you can protect yourself against
multiple threats with Sabre Red. The 0.54-ounce canister offers a
range of ten feet to provide protection at a safe distance and its
ballistic stream delivery reduces the chance of wind blow-back.

Stun Gun Key Ring (self-defense, power surge):
Pictured right, the StreetWise key chain sized stun gun is half the
size, and all the power. Although the S.M.A.C.K. is about half the
size of a normal stun gun, it has more power than most models
on the market today.

#2 Survival Key Chain: fire starter.
When SHTF will you be able to make fire based on what's on your
keychain? Left, is a humorous commode firestarter to ensure
you'll be able to do just that. Having a BIC lighter, a ferrocium
rod or a magnesium firestarter attached to our key chain is
among the most basic of prepper comforts.

#3: Survival Key chain: Micro-tool / multi-tool key
Why settle for a key chain with only one function? Gerber, Swiss
Tech and others have combined tools making them versatile and

  • Gerber key chain tool: The Gerber key ring tool pictured
    immediate right features a compact design that includes
    three blades. Blade folds out for use and in for storage. It
    also features a bottle opener and a pry bar and it's equipped
    with cross and flat drivers.

  • Swiss + Tech: Swiss+Tech tools have a patented, quick-
    release, integrated locking system that attaches to any key
    ring, thereby eliminating the need for an additional ring or
    belt holster. These innovative, high-quality, light-weight
    products fulfill a common need--having the tools you need
    when you need them. They make a great gift:

  • Swiss+Tech key chain Multi-Tool (19-tools): Pictured
    immediate right, the SwissTech key chain comes with 19
    tools in a single, portable key ring tool! The 19-in-1 multi-
    tool fits on your key ring, and comes equipped with the
    following tools: six screwdrivers, two hex wrenches, pliers,
    wire cutter, wire stripper, wire crimper, hand drill, file, bottle
    opener, two rulers (mm and inch), and two ruler extensions.
    Unlike all other multi-function tools, many Swiss+Tech tools
    have a patented, quick-release, integrated locking system
    that can attach to any key ring, thereby eliminating the need
    for an additional ring or belt holster.

  • Swiss+Tech key chain Multi-Tool (5-in-1 tools): BodyGard
    5-In-1 protects you in vehicle and personal emergencies.
    BodyGard combines five individual devices into one compact
    unit to ensure your personal safety. Featuring an automatic
    glass breaker, safety-blade seat belt cutter, sonic alarm,
    flashing red distress light and bright-white LED flashlight,
    the BodyGard 5-in-1 Emergency Tool is specifically designed
    to help drivers escape from their vehicles when the windows
    or doors fail to operate due to vehicle damage, fire or

  • Swiss+Tech key chain Multi-Tool (6-tools): Pictured lower
    left, the Swiss+Tech Utili-Key 6-in-1 is an ultra-light,
    durable, and precision-crafted 6-in-1 mini-tool that features
    a straight knife blade and a serrated cutting surface, a flat
    screwdriver, a Phillips screwdriver, a micro-sized screwdriver,
    and a bottle opener. It weighs just 0.5 oz. The tool makes
    minor repairs, assemblies, installations, and hundreds of
    jobs an easy undertaking. The patented quick-release design
    easily snaps to your key ring, and just as easily releases for
    multiple everyday tasks.

  • Swiss +Tech Keychaing (7-tools): The Key Ring Multi-Tool,
    pictured left, is a 7-in-1 offers a range of handy tools on
    your key chain that are with you when you need them
    including an LED flashlight, Phillips screwdriver, knife, awl,
    bottle opener, flat screwdriver and key ring. Each tools
    snaps into position for stability, and the built-in flashlight
    with a soft-squeeze on/off button and an ultra-bright,
    100,000+-hour LED lights your work. Replaceable batteries
    are included.

#4 Survival Key chain: Seatbelt cutter (escape).
Designer Ray Kirk has put his spin on the concept of an
emergency strap cutter with his new K.E.R.T. (Keying Emergency
Rescue Tool). Now you can have a razor sharp seatbelt cutter
always at the ready hanging on your key ring. This nifty little tool
also excels in cutting webbing, or fibrous materials, when
needed. It features a screwdriver, oxygen tank opener, bottle
opener and 1/4" hex wrench. This is a pocket sized tool that is
designed to make your life easier, maybe prevent a headache or
two and perform necessary emergency tasks. The K.E.R.T. comes
with a form fitted vinyl slip-sheath. Don't be caught unprepared,
stay safe and put one on your key chain today.

#5: Survival Key chain: Military can Openers.
Military can openers, pictured right, ensure you'll always be able
to open a can. In desperate times in an urban environment this
could be a lifesaver, though there are prepping methods to open
a can without a can opener.

List of Survival Key Chains
So what's on your key ring? Your world can change in an instant
and your ability survive depends on the things you carry everyday
with you whether you're headed to the grocery store, the office, a
hike or a long trip. (Preppers call this
Every Day Carry or EDC.)

Here are some ideas of what to put on your key chain that might
just save your life:

List of Things to Consider Adding to your Survival Key Ring:
  1. Compass
  2. Defense
  3. Eating Utensil
  4. Firestarter
  5. Flashlight
  6. Magnifier
  7. Military can opener
  8. Multitool (leatherman, Swiss Army Knife, Swiss-Tech).
  9. Multipurpose suspension clip. (See bottom of the page for
  10. Paracord.
  11. Self defense tool (tactical pressure tip, MACE/pepper spray,
    Taser/stun gun)
  12. Seatbelt cutter.
  13. USB device / flash drive. Pack images of all your important
    documents, along with family photos and more on a USB
    device for your key chain.

What to carry on your key chain is a personal decision based on
your vulnerabilities and strengths and how much you're willing to
hold on your key chain for everyday carry. There are many tools
to hold it all together, including:

  • Aircraft cable: The durable and strong aircraft cable loop,
    pictured right, unscrews to allow many items to fin on your
    key chain.

  • Multipurpose Suspension Clip. Also picture right, the
    multipurpose suspension clip.

Happy endings...
There's a long list of things you could carry on your key chain, but
ultimately, you must weigh in on the issue of bulk and
practicality. One thing's for sure, you can prepare to live happily
ever after by planning a few essentials for your survival.

Remember these things:

  • Security: If non-lethal self defense is ultimately your goal,
    then you'll want to make the bull-dog key chain (or other
    probing tactical tool) your primary survival key ring tool. If
    you can't easily grab this portion of your keys (because
    you've weighed down your key chain with too many
    gadgets); then this would be va useless addition to your key
    chain. You can always have a second key chain for your
    other survival gear in the purse or backpack.

  • Checkpoint Charlie: If you're frequently headed to certain
    checkpoints, such as a court of law, or even the social
    security office, you won't be able to bring a key chain knife,
    for example. Make sure your gear is TSA-compliant.

Start by considering all the things that you could put on your
keychain, and then narrow the list to what is essential for you.
