Second step


Once the cable is readjusted, you should tighten it further. For this, you must grasp the  zip ties with your teeth and pull as hard as possible. This may seem odd to you but it will make the next step easier as it will create more tension near the lock bar to eventually break.

Third step

It may take two or three attempts before the handcuffs breaks. Using all your strength, this plastic zip ties will normally burst.

If your abuser holds your hands, you can lift the knee vertically and aim at the genitals of your attacker. You can also use your elbow to defend yourself. It's about bending your arm to make a hit on your abuser's face with the ball of your elbow.
