Why should you keep your tools hidden?

If you ever get captured you will most likely get searched. Even amateur kidnappers will probably do a basic frisk. 

Taking a little time to hide your escape and evasion tools may save your life!


What kinds of items should you include that could be useful for an escape?

Aside from tools for escaping, you also need to think about survival items. Small objects are easily kept and convenient for travel.

You can include a blade, a map, a handcuff key, and a GPS locator with you. Make sure you have a duplicate key so that if they discover one, you still have another to use.


How do we keep things hidden in order to ensure safety and a successful escape?

You can consider hiding things in certain areas of your body. Alternatively (and more comfortably) you can sew small items into your clothes.


To start making your very own escape and evasion kit today, simply gather the items you want to include and sew them into a piece of clothing you regularly wear.
