Covert Escape Compass

Covert Escape Compass

This unique new covert compass was inspired by the various escape compasses developed during WWII and issued to Allied airmen and commandos as part of their escape & evasion kits. Unlike standard military compasses, due to specialized requirements escape compasses were mostly very small and of rudimentary design, had minimal markings, and provided gross magnetic north indication.

Now - 75 years later - we've brought the escape compass to a new level of covertness. It's completely unrecognizable as a compass - it looks just like a US nickel. In fact, it actually is one!

When suspended on a thread (there's a special thread channel all around the coin's side), the "heads" side will always indicate magnetic north!  You supply the thread, but your clothing or nature are reliable sources if needed. Also available in a Euro coin version.

By agreeing to these Terms, you hereby certify that you are eligible to receive locksmithing devices through the mail pursuant to 39 U.S.C. Section 3002a (a) because one or more of the following terms describe either you or your business:

1. a lock manufacturer or distributor.

2. a bona fide locksmith*.

3. a bona fide repossessor.

4. a motor vehicle manufacturer or dealer.

5. sworn commissioned law enforcement officer.

These Terms were made to induce vendor to send one or more locksmithing devices as defined in 39 U.S.C. Section 3002a (b) to you through the mail and it is expressly understood that vendor will be relying upon your agreeing to these Terms contained herein in filling the undersigned’s order.

*The statute does not define the term “locksmith”. Webster’s Third New International Dictionary defines a locksmith as follows: “a worker who makes or repairs locks.” It is the position of vendor that the term “locksmith” may be deemed to include an individual or organization, a reasonable and substantial portion of whose job description includes the activities normally associated with a locksmith as that term is defined, for example, but not by way of limitation, the security or maintenance department of a hospital, tow truck operator, and so forth.
