This is a two part questions. We know ITS has an Urban E&E kit with different devices in it like small handcuff keys, ceramic razors, diamond cutter bars, button compass etc..., even lock picks like the small Bogota picks that can be carried and hidden can be part of this evasion kit.
My question or info I'm looking for is for a practical way to carry these very small handful of tools in a way that would not be detected if caught in a domestic, meaning in the US, critical incident or active shooter scenario where some of us might be taken or held without our consent for an undetermined amount of time.
The same question goes for part 2 but this time while traveling overseas, whether in a hostile / high threat area or not. In this case, one might lose his shoes, shoelaces, belts, hats, even bracelets, and necklaces. In this case our only hope would be that our captors don't strip us and give use a whole different set of clothes. So barring this worst case scenario and having to give up all our clothing, how can we hide these items and be able to conveniently move them from clothing item to clothing item in a practical and effective manner so we can use them if need be.
The only way I know how to do it is to insert these E&E tools in different parts of our clothing that would be difficult to detection or lose, just like in the military.
For example, I would always carry a very small flint rod at the very end of my hiking boots lace. I replaced my laces with 550 cord, took out the last 2" of the inside strands and stuck the rod inside and remelted the end. worked great. BTW, I never use regular laces on my boots, I always use 550 cord instead and leave enough of it so I can wrap it twice around my boots before I tie them off. It gives me a bit more cord to use if I need it.
Anyway any info would be great.
