The 25 Days of Undead Christmas – Day 14 (Duct Tape)

For the fourteenth day of my 25 Undead Christmas presents I want duct tape.

Who wouldn’t want duct tape? It has a thousand and one uses.  Fixing tears in clothes, tents, and holding your flashlight to the end of your weapon are just a few of the basic uses. When the going get’s rough, the rough use duct tape instead of stitches.

Thoughts on duct tape uses after the hordes rise:

  1. Taping boxes up over your windows. (Zombies are attracted to motion)
  2. Securing the bitten or those you suspect of being bitten. It gives you a safe way to secure someone while you wait for them to turn.
  3. Taping mags together for quick reloads.
  4. Making spears and pokey things. Tape your knife to the end of a mop handle and you have an instant spear.
  5. Quick splints of simple fractures. Slap a stick on there and tape away.
  6. Tape the keys to the safe room in a creative place so you don’t have to worry about losing them.
  7. Rapid bicycle tire repair. (bikes are quick and mostly quiet which is a good thing when zombies are around)
  8. Fixing belts and straps quickly.
  9. Quick raft repair.
  10. Duct Tape Hammocks 
  11. Weapons mods.
  12. Shoe repair.
  13. And saving the best for last. Post apocalyptic child care. 

Let me know the other nine hundred and ninety five uses for duct tape I’ve missed below.
