TFG Tips: DIY Door Bondage Straps

Since I can’t host kinky meets at home because of my husband (he doesn’t want his location known to people he doesn’t know, which I feel is fair), it means most of my meets have to happen in hotels.  Which can limit the bondage opportunities a bit.  I actually did a post about what sort of bondage can be done in hotels, but one of the things that generally isn’t easily done in a hotel is standing bondage.

Then I remembered something that most non-fetish adult stores sell:  over the door bondage straps.  Now, I could’ve bought them online, but 1) I was in a hurry and wanted them for an imminent meet, 2) I didn’t really care for the neoprene restraints that seem to come with them, and 3) they just seemed a bit pricey for their limited use.  So what do I do instead?  Get creative.

A trip to the local dollar store later, and I think I had an idea.  I bought four 20 inch leather dog collars (the kind that buckle closed, like a small belt), very small cable ties (about 4 inches long), and a pack of sturdy plastic hair curlers.  I already happened to have some wide black electrical tape lying around, so I didn’t have to worry about that.  Total cost:  about $6-7 dollars.

Instructions:

Step 1)  I wrapped black electrical tape all over the outside of the plastic hair curler.  This was mostly aesthetic, but also to give it a bit more strength, as well as grip to keep the collar more in place.  Remember, that part will be behind the door anyway, so no one’s really going to see it.  But frankly, this is more of an optional step that could probably very well be skipped, and it’d still work fine.

Step 2)  Wrap the end of the dog collar around the curler.  Loop a cable tie through the collar as shown below, and then close the tie.  Pull it tight, and cut off the excess.

Step 3)  Do the same going around the other side of the collar, as shown below.

That’s pretty much it!  The collars I found had a small hook at the end that would be for the leash to attach to.  So this does presume you have your own rope or restraints to lock or tie into that hook.

Are they the highest quality ever?  Of course not.  But these are something I will only use from time to time, so they aren’t meant to be super durable over frequent use for a long period of time.  And believe it or not, it turns out they were surprisingly study.  I’m guessing they may actually last a while after all.  I made a total of four of them, so I can put two over the door for arms, and two under the door for ankles.  If you only want arms, then you can cut your expenses in half.

Happy DIY bondage!
