Thanks To This, I Know How To Break Free From Zip Ties. This Could Save Lives


It’s not uncommon to see more than one set of plastic zip ties dangling from a police officer’s belt in substitution for a pair of handcuffs. Handcuffs can be costly to manufacture, and could constitute the bulk of an officer’s personal storage when on duty. Therefore, the zip tie serves as a cheaper, yet equally efficient, means of binding a person’s wrists. However, while using zip ties as a restraint mechanism is an activity ideally performed by law enforcement, they can easily be used for criminal activities as well.
