The bracelet gives the person wearing it 7.5 feet to use in an emergency. The cord from these bracelets can be used to create a harness to extract an injured person from a bad location or make a sling or splint, and the inner nylon cord can be used as thread to repair gear or as emergency sutures to close a wound.

Make a bracelet for yourself or to be sent to Operation Gratitude where they will be included in care packages sent to our soldiers overseas and new recruits graduating from boot camp. Instruction and supplies will be provided.
