Nobody wants to be the extra in the horror movie that ties up the serial killer with a belt only to have him get away before next cut scene. Avoid saying "But he was just here!" with these DIY cuffs.
Over at the DIY tutorial site Instructables user Jake22 has put together a guide using cheap and strong paracord to make a pair of impromptu handcuffs. While you might not have any intention of making handcuffs any time soon the knot-magic he uses is worth checking out the tutorial—he uses a combination of a friction hitch and square knot to create a super strong combination knot.
Whether you're binding arms, lashing together tend poles, or tying down gear on the bed of a truck, a good knot is great to have—it's even great for wrapping your luggage handle for easy identification. Check out his tutorial for additional information and a step-by-step walk through.
