How to break out of a zip-tie- potentially life-saving information

You guys, please share it. You never know when someone is going to need this information.

PLEASE reblog this— zipties are one of the most common ways of binding a person upon kidnapping because they are cheap and hard to break.

Knowing things like this puts you one step closer to freedom if, heaven forbid, you fall into a situation where you need to use this information.

This is useful to know of course, but it’s worth noting that this video is kind of a poor example because she’s using commercial zipties that you might buy at a hardware store to pull some wires together or something which are way flimsier than the law enforcement style cuffs that are more often used. The kind that they usually used to bind people’s wrists are about 3x thicker than the ones in this video, and attempting this technique is more likely to just cause them to tighten and cut off circulation to your hands if you don’t break them which is a serious thing to be aware of, you don’t want to lose a hand. Also this will NOT work on the cuff style ones that are 2 in 1. 

What will work on both of those however is paracord, or any kind of nylon string which you can use as a saw and pretty much cut through them in a few seconds of back and forth sawing motion. Just FYI.
