Hmmm. Shouldn't there be four cuffs here two for the wrists and two for the ankles rather then just three? Cause as it is, one appendage apparently is going to be left uh, footloose and fancy free, right? Thus, we looked at the promotional photo supplied to us by the manufacturer, and it depicts one of the three cuffs being used to bind both wrists with the other two cuffs each going around an ankle. So yes, this item can in theory be used for hog-tying, but the omission of that fourth cuff remains a bit of a mystery.
