How to tie the Handcuff Knot. THE HANDCUFF KNOT produces two adjustable loops in
opposing directions and secured in the middle, which can be tightened down around a person’s hands or feet. However, to be even remotely secure, the working ends should be secured with one or more Overhand Knots or a Square Knot. The Handcuff Knot can also be used to hobble a horse to limit its ability to move. It is easy to tie and can be made quickly with nearly any material including paracord and webbing.
