How to turn an ordinary belt into a pair of handcuffs.

First, get a belt! This method of shackling will work with a "rope" belt, but for the sake of the tutorial, it is recommended that you use a belt with a buckle and a loop to take the slack.

While these cuffs are functional, they are by no means foolproof and can be slipped out of with some work. I do not recommended them for actual imprisonment purposes, but whatever else you may think of doing with them, well, I shall leave that up to you.

Step 1: 1

Step One: Thread the tail (non-buckle end) of the belt through the buckle. Pull it tight enough so that the resulting circle is sized accordingly to whatever you are cuffing. For the sake of this tutorial, we will call this circle the "cuff".
Thank you so much. I used it on my friend and yeah it worked! <3
<p>I'm glad you enjoyed it!</p>
awesome thank you so much I've always thought of belts as inhibitors if fun times. not any more!
works very well and leaves less marks then real handcuffs &nbsp;
<p>The first thing we teach people getting into BDSM: Handcuffs are not for playing. You should never use &quot;real&quot; handcuffs for anything other than photos. For restraint in play: leather restraint, rope, or if you really want to use cuffs look into some Darby Cuffs. They are not ideal, but are better. </p>
i couldn't get this to work, it didn't slip properly on the tightening up?
Its largely dependent on the belt you are using. I'm a pretty big guy, so theres enough belt tail left over to fill the entire loop. If the loop is packed, this will cause friction, augmenting the &quot;locking&quot; of the cuffs. If your a small person, I suggest borrowing a larger belt. The leather material helps as well in this department. there are other factors of course, like the nature of the buckle, the size of the cuffs, etc. let me know if ive been a help at all!
yes i think, so im a big to =), i think its my belt buckle.. ill try some different ones
Cool, but you can just pull it apart...
If you were handcuffed with a belt in this manner (assuming it is tightened properly), when you pull against it you are not going to make a lot of headway in unraveling it. The reason is because of the way it is looped and then wrapped around itself. Before the lengths wrapped around your wrists could loosen (which by being tight prevents you from getting any good leverage and restricts your strength), you would have to somehow apply enough force to pull the outermost length around and through the buckle - you'd have to move it more than twice as far as you need the belt loosened around your wrist actually. It would be more likely that, given a strong man, you would break the leather of the belt before you just pull it apart.
I'll try it on a younger sibling. We'll see how it goes...
cool instructable. Useful if you have someone break into your house and you catch them however, the final picture could be used to create dirty jokes :P
