How to Understand and Defeat Zip Ties

Learning to defeat items that can be used for illegal restraints, like hardware store zip ties can make all the difference during an attack like a home invasion. Defeating these is a simple process that starts by understanding how they work.

Common zip ties consist of a sturdy nylon tape that features small teeth running lengthwise down one side and a small-toothed ratchet mechanism concealed in an open case. The ratchet is molded to allow free travel in one direction, but not in the other. Zip ties commonly have a weight rating, but we’ve found these methods to work with ties as strong as a 175 lb. tensile strength.

Is Bypassing a Lock Faster Than Picking?

Picking a lock with a smaller keyway can be difficult and a bit frustrating. However, on some locks it may be easier to just bypass the keyway completely using something like a Quick Stick. Quick Sticks are rigid tools with a pointed end that allow you to quickly bypass the pins and manually lift the locking dog on some padlocks. Once unlocked, the Quick Sticks can remain in position and be used to unlock over and over again.
