How to fix an unthreaded drawstring
Background and Identification
As an avid adventurer, you might not carry your full tool kit on the trail. However, that doesn’t mean things won’t go wrong and, when you’re out hiking, camping, or rock climbing, a small issue can result in a lot of discomfort. For instance, imagine there’s a tear in your tent, giving you a hundred mosquito roommates for the night. Alternatively, imagine your jacket drawstring is unthreaded, causing cold winds to smack you in the side of the face. These problems and many more can be remedied by a quick in-the-field repair that, usually, doesn’t require a full set of screwdrivers. Often times, a few stitches and a dash of patience will take you very far when you’re working on a repair out in the field.
If you’re currently out adventuring and looking for a quick fix, look no further. These guides are designed to use minimal tools and be as fast as possible so fixing your tent doesn’t mean missing out on the day’s activities. You can peruse the categories on this page and see if your quick fix fits in any of them. If it doesn’t, be sure to write a guide telling us how you made your repair once you figure it out!
