money from going to Home Depot or Lowe’s
use it on things more important and if
you have the old M 1935 1938 pistol
belts with accessories these little wire
hangers are indispensable of course the
old standby of using a coat hanger when
you have your keys locked in your car
just to be able to use it getting it
down in here now a lot of modern cars
you’re not gonna be able to do that but
a lot of cars can still use the old coat
hanger method and how many times have
you lost your string that ties to a
piece of clothing run wire up through
come out the other side tie it on
then just run your string right through
now to me that’s the best trick of the
day plus you can have an SH TF if you’re
jogging shorts lose the string and of
course using a piece of wire to pull
things out of the drain and that keeps
your wife from having an SH TF oh yeah
using it for a hanger and of course the
old standby is to take your old
marshmallow or hot dog wienie run your
wire through it now we’re ready for a
marshmallow roast of course if you
haven’t seen my video on making a rocket
stove I’ll have the link right here oh
yeah there we go
now honestly we’re just taking wire and
we’re using it for a lot of different
things and you can use standard regular
wire but the one thing about coat
hangers they seem to have a rigidity
that a lot of other wires that are
rolled up do not have so this is just a
great option it’s a ready resource and
it’s cheap so guys hold onto the old
coat hangers you never know when you
might need something just using your
mind thinking about these things on how
to use it you know these are pretty
simple is something that any of us could
probably figure out but in a panic
filled situation it’s great to have some
ideas put back you just never know what
you can use them for be strong be of
good courage god bless america
long live the Republic
and you can retrieve lost items that
have fallen back behind something don’t
hunt something and retrieve lost items
that have fallen behind yourself whoops
I guess I better do that again this may
not be the prettiest safety pin you’ve
ever seen oops
so guys hold on to those old coat
hangers so guys hold on to those old
coat hangers the perks of making videos
