An Anti-Kidnapping Watch Band Hides the Tools You'll Need to Escape

By Andrew Liszewski on at

The odds of the average citizen getting kidnapped are pretty low, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't be prepared for such a scenario. This anti-kidnapping band that attaches to any watch strap should appeal to the well-prepared and paranoid alike, since it hides a set of basic tools for escaping from handcuffs, rope, tip ties, and gaffer tape.

An Anti-Kidnapping Watch Band Hides the Tools You'll Need to Escape

When used with a black plastic watch strap, the A-K Band's rubber sleeve is almost perfectly camouflaged. Which means that your captors won't notice you're carrying a plastic handcuff key, a small ceramic razor blade, and over a metre's worth of Kevlar friction saw string.

They'll all even slip past a metal detector, and with a little bit of time and privacy, should let you free your hands and legs should you find yourself bound up somewhere. But the rest of your escape is up to you. [Gearward via DudeIWantThat]
