In this re-edited and upscaled video footage of an escape challenge, the would be escapologist ‘The Prisoner’ was made to wear a ballgag to prevent communication and a tight rubber hood was placed over his head to add a degree of sensory deprivation and to add further difficulties to this escape challenge. The rubber hood is especially effective as the amount of air which can pass in and out of the small nostril holes is restricted and excessive breathing caused by anxious struggling can cause the hood to cling to the prisoner’s head and cause a vacuum. A tight rubber hood is to be recommended if a prisoner/victim is to be kept truly under control. For this extended escape challenge, the prisoner was placed in a large black office chair and his wrists were initially handcuffed in front of him but this was soon changed and his wrists were securely recuffed directly behind his back. His ankles were tightly roped together and then pulled under the chair and attached to the base. His thighs and knees were then roped to the arm rests. His knees were also roped to each other as well as to the chair. This meant that the prisoner had no leg movement whatsoever. Ropes were attached to the arm rests and then passed in front of and behind the prisoner’s body as well as being tied around his waist. His arms were then tightly roped to his upper body. With his handcuffed wrists immediately behind his back the prisoner was unable to rest back into the chair. This position proved to be uncomfortable for the prisoner and so, after a period of struggling the prisoner’s upper body ropes were removed and his wrists were recuffed behind the chair. His upper body was then roped securely to the back rest. It is in this position that the prisoner spent most of his time. After a period of extensive struggling, it became clear that the prisoner could not escape and so the majority of the prisoner’s body ropes were removed leaving him secured to the chair by his ankles ropes and his handcuffs. A length of chain was padlocked to his cuffs and then attached to the base of the chair behind him to prevent him from trying to sit or stand up.
