This watertight match box has a primary use of placing your emergency matches inside and keeping them dry. The watertight match box has a seal in the cap that keeps the water out. On the bottom is a flint striking surface that you can use to create a spark. This match safe has many other uses in addition to keeping your matches dry. It can be used as a mini survival kit itself.
Waterproof Match Box
This watertight match box would be a good container for making a separate fishing kit with hooks, line, sinkers, swivels, and even small artificial baits. Best use of this item other than storing matches is to create your own mini survival kits. Even with 20 matches inside, there is still about an inch of room left on top that you could add other gear to. Small, compact, and travels easily. Keeps things dry.
You can fit 6-8 of the emergency tinders in one of the match boxes and have backup tinder. It's always a good idea to have backups unless you prefer to find dry tinder in the woods. Dry tinder is difficult to find in the woods. Most things found on the ground will not work because of the moisture they retain. Placing potential tinder such as leaves, pine needles, or strips of inner bark inside your clothing so your body heat can dry them out is useful and effective if needed. You can also create your own tinder.
Watertight Match Safe
Note: If you keep safety survival matches in this match safe, also include the striker from the match box. Flint does not light those matches. To create a spark using the flint, use your knife to scrape it and aim the sparks toward your tinder.
A tinder tube is a small waterproof container that holds your prepared tinder. Prepared tinder can be store bought or you can make it yourself. The important thing is that you have a way to make fire easily.
Also referred to as a match safe or match box, the tinder tube is your way of keeping your tinder dry and in a specific spot in your survival kit. One of the most critical tasks you may face during an emergency is the ability to create a fire.
