USE A RUBBER BAND TO SECURE YOUR IMPROVISED WEAPON  TO YOUR HAND

By: Koki Wong  5/13/2013

Did you know a simple item such as a rubber-band can be very effective in securing items in the palm of your hand. Improving your grip on an improvised weapon could make all the difference in an altercation, allowing you the freedom to still utilize the fingers of both hands while maintaining a grasp of the weapon.

Rubber-bands come in all shapes and sizes. I find that the thicker heavy duty rubber-bands work best, they're more durable and the thicker the band the more it grabs onto the hand held tool. Examples of tools can be rolled up magazines, writing implements (pens, pencils), a wrench, and screwdriver.



Below is a description of how to use the rubber-band to secure the tool.

Form hand into the spiderman hand position. Place improvised weapon in palm and grasp with the middle and ring finger. Pull rubber-band with other hand and place over the middle and ring finger. Extend fingers out to secure rubber-band in place.
