DIY Quick & Easy Bondage Restraints Howto

BDSM Restraints VelcroWhen it comes to bondage, restraint is key. Tying up your submissive to prevent them using certain limbs or stop their whole body from moving, rendering them completely helpless and putting them at the mercy of your desires.

The basis of any good bondage is a set of cuffs to tie your submissives’ wrists and ankles together. Just tying their hands behind their back can change your submissives’ perspective completely and plant them firmly in the head space for a BDSM scene.

This howto guide will show you how to make your own quick and easy restraints from very cheap materials. Although basic, they are surprisingly effective and comfortable long periods.

Materials Required

BDSM Restraints Velcro Tie

  • Double sided Velcro tie, 50cm minimum.
  • Rectangular belt loop, same width as Velcro tape. Metal or plastic, 1 per restraint.

I found a 5m roll of Velcro tape in my local hardware store for a tenner. I picked up bag of 20 nickel plated belt loops (32mm wide) from an ebay shop for £3 delivered. Bargain!

 

Construction of Wrist Restraints

For wrist restraints, first cut your Velcro tie to a length of about 50cm. You may get by with shorter, but it’s better to start longer and trim it down at the end. Next thread the two ends through the rectangular belt loop, ensuring the softer side of the Velcro is facing inwards (see ‘step 1′ photo below). This forms the first hole to wrap around one wrist.

Finally stick the two Velcro ends together to form the second hole for the other wrist (see ‘finished’ photo below). And that’s it!

In use, un-stick the two ends of the Velcro, thread one wrist into the first hole, slide the rectangular belt loop along to tighten it around the wrist. Then wrap the two ends around the second wrist, pull taught and stick them together to make a second tight hole around the wrist.

As with any restraints, care for your submissives’ circulation, you should be able to just squeeze your little pinky finger between the restraint and the wrist. Additionally, throughout the scene do repeatedly re-check circulation to be safe, your submissive may not notice the numbness of losing circulation in the heat of the scene.

Variations for Ankle and Thigh Restraints

Ankle cuffs can be constructed in exactly the same way, just a longer length of Velcro tie. However the fun doesn’t stop there, you can make longer restraints to tie wrists to thighs, thighs to thighs or tying limbs to your bed frame. Your imagination is the limit.

The Velcro tie is a great material to work with, it’s soft on one side, very strong when pulled laterally, cheap and very importantly, it won’t get tighter as your submissive wiggles causing circulation issues.
