This may be one of the easiest ways yet to build a campfire, assuming you don’t have the ability to shoot flames out of your hand like Iron Man. And there are times – when it’s cold, windy, maybe raining, or the kids are clamoring to toast marshmallows – when it is not fun, efficient, or expedient to follow the usual fire building rituals. Keeping a few Pull Start Fires in your emergency kit could make fire building much easier – and more fun.
Pull Start Fire is just what it sounds like. Much the same as starting a chainsaw, though way easier, you simply place the fire starter in the middle of a log structure, wrap the green string around one of the logs to secure it, pull the red string (the pull cord), and presto, the fire starts and burns long enough to start a nice log fire (as long as you use relatively small, dry logs, you don’t even need tinder or kindling).
The Pull Start Fire is water resistant, wind proof, and eco-friendly, according to the company. You can see it in action in a video on their website.
