You can restrain a person or even hobble a dog with three 7" zip ties!
Step 1: Prepare the Zip Ties
If a picture is worth a thousand words, this 7 picture ible is roughy the length of a cheap romance novel.
Form loops with 2 of the zip ties.
Step 2: Attach the Zip Ties to Your Prisoner
Step 3: The Great Escape!
Do not allow the prisoner access to a safety pin, lest they slide the tip of the pin through the zip tie locking mechanism and UNZIP the restraints!
