Diy Handcuffs From Zip Ties

Introduction: Diy Handcuffs From Zip Ties

This is a life hack for people who want to be prepared to restrain someone's hands but don't have handcuffs. As you've probably seen in spy movies, people are restrained with zip ties but it has been very hard for me to find ones big enough to fit around my hand. So I decided to share this life hack with you guys so you can be prepared for the worst.

    If you are going to use zip ties as restraints secure their hands behind the person's back. It is very easy to get out of zip tie restraints if your hands are in front of you. Also, I would recommend using the heaviest duty ones that you have.

    the hardware, and sometimes automotive, department of walmarts have heavy duty zip ties of all sizes. some are even 3 ft long.
