If you’re tying your partner up, you’ll probably want to tie up their arms. Here’s a collection of simple techniques that work well in a variety of situations.

Restraining the Arms

A person in a white bodysuit is raising their right hand with the palm forward, as thought to wave hello. They are wearing a blue chest harness and a green column tie is tied around their right wrist. The rope end from the column tie is tied to the chest harness at the point where the right shoulder line connects to the chest wrap. The column tie is separated from the chest harness by two inches.

OPTION1aTie a column tie on the wrist and attach to the chest harness with two half hitches. It’s most secure to attach to the point where the shoulder lines connect to the horizontal wraps.

OPTION1bFor better immobilization, tie the chest harness and wrist inside the same single column tie.

A rear view of a person in a white bodysuit wearing a blue chest harness. Their arms hang straight down, slightly behind their back, with the backs of the hands resting on the buttocks. The wrists are separated by about eight inches and are bound together by a bar tie in blue rope. A green rope connects the center of the bar tie to the chest harness.

OPTION4bUse a bar tie instead of a column tie. This option is good for someone who’s lying on their back, or who has limited shoulder mobility.
