One of the most critical “collapse” skills is to master your ability to escape from a variety of restraints.

There are any number or reasons you could find yourself bound and gagged – helpless to protect yourself and your family.

It could be from a home invasion where you’re tied up while criminals rob your home (or worse – subject your family to all sorts of brutal acts.

It could be an ambush kidnapping where you or your spouse is knocked unconscious and stuffed into the trunk of a car – transported to your “final” destination

It could even be a wide-scale round-up of “at risk” civilians during martial law.

This is why you should always hide at least one means of escaping from restraints in your “everyday carry survival gear” (EDC), my buddy, Jeff talks about in his book titled Collapse Survival Secrets

One of the restraints commonly used are plastic “zip ties” because they’re easy to tie you up with… yet almost impossible for 99% of the people out there to escape from.

But we can be the 1%. 🙂

Here’s How To REALLY Escape From Zip Tie Restraints…

First, you’re going to find lots of tips on how to escape from zip ties all over the internet, like…

-Swinging your hands forcibly down from your head to your stomach to snap the clasp

-Biting through the plastic

-Hanging from the top of a door with your hands over your head to leverage a break
Etc.

But here’s the problem with these escape methods…

All the ones I’ve seen have your hands bound in FRONT of you.

Now let me ask you… if YOU were going to tie someone up to truly immobilize them, would you tie their hands in front of them so they could easily grab a frying pan and crush your melon?

I don’t think so.

The real question is how do you escape from zip ties when your hands are BEHIND you and you don’t have the mobility to do all those fancy schmancy leverage breaks.

Well, if you’re carrying the 27 “covert” survival EDC items Jeff tells you to, you can break out of zip ties even with your hands behind your back.

For example, in this guide Jeff advises you should switch out your current shoelaces for 550 paracord (which comes in every color imaginable).

-Now, when your hands are zip-tied behind you, reach down with your bound hands and untie one (or both) of your shoes.

-Loop one of the laces up through the zip-ties and retie it in a square knot to the other shoe lace.

(Note: it’s best to tie the very end of one shoelace to a spot about halfway down the end of the other lace. This makes sure the knot isn’t at the very center of the now connected laces. You’ll see why next…)

-Your paracord laces should now be looped through the inside of your zip-ties near your wrists.

-Next, raise your body up so that your cuffs are pulling hard against the paracord as your laces tighten up.

– Now with a short back and forth motion of your hands, “rub” the cuffs against the taut paracord in one single spot in a super-fast speed, creating friction between the cord and the cuffs.

Within a short time, you’ll have burned through enough of the plastic to twist your wrists, using leverage to break through the rest of the cuffs and escape!
