Survival Cards, Reusable Tool Kits

Grim EDC Survival Card kits are all reusable thanks to our custom fabricated Tool Retention System. We want to see you take your gear out, and get familiar with it, that way when the day comes where an emergency occurs, or you just need to use a piece of gear you are a natural with all your equipment in the card. This unique feature allows you to remove any tool from your card, use it, and then return it back to the card to use again another day. Grim's tool retention system is non magnetic (so no de-magntized credit cards) and non adhesive (so no gunk build up on your gear or wallet).


Always within Reach – Survival Card Tool Stickers

Grim's survival gear systems also contain a special permanent adhesive on the back of our tool retention system, peeling off the white back, and exposing this allows you to stick our Survival Cards to any flat surface, for instance the inside, or outside of a tool box, fishing tackle box, or other type of kit, like tool stickers adding storage and utility to otherwise unusable spaces filling these locations with the tools of your choice.
