You can add superglue to the long list of must-haves for survival situations. Superglue is often used to repair items, and its use in the survival world isn’t much different. Tubes of superglue are lightweight and small, making them easy to add to any bug out bag or survival kit. But why even bother, what good is superglue in a survival situation anyway?

Of course, you can always use the glue for its intended purpose: holding items together. You can craft weapons using superglue to hold the separate components together. Or you could use it to repair your backpack, boots, tent and other equipment.

Add a dab of superglue over a stubborn splinter and allow it to dry. Peel the glue off, and the splinter should come out with it.
