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! 
How in the world a zipped criminal get a hold of a safety pin to unzip the third lock?
Right...There's a criminal robbing a bank. You come up to him with a zip tie thumb cuff. "excuse me, can I please just pop this around your thumbs to stop you from hurting anyone"? "Yeah, sure mate." I just don't think this would work to restrain a violent person...
apprehension locks + zip tie thuumb cuffs = problem solved
If a picture is worth a thousand words, why isn't that said in a picture rather than in words?
Who cares?
Apparently, no one.
gah, please don't use these during games with kids or other people. the width of these will quickly cause damage to someone's thumbs if they decide to try to struggle. there's a reason no one in any law enforcement actually uses thumbcuffs. and zipcuffs (for wrists) are about 1.5" wide so they don't cut through your wrists...
I don't recommend them for any use, but if I needed to restrain a violent criminal, I wouldn't hesitate to use zip ties in this fashion.
