Strappado: the Safe and Simple way

Sometimes you just have to do things yourself.

Strappado: the Safe and Simple way

Unread postby FatherOfFour » Thu Aug 25, 2016 7:38 am

I cannot compete in Heavy league (suspension, mummification, etc.) but I've evolved somehow in the last half year, although my burning questions remained unanswered... (see http://boundforum.com/viewtopic.php?t=102622)

So I've started to do some strappados, and got to refine them to the following recipe
(more than a dozen scenes already done...)

What You need:
- one ratchet (<10USD), from DIY shop or even gas-station
- one turnbuckle (Or Your release mechanism of choice) (<3USD)
- a few metal rings or small carabiners (<1USD)
- a few quick release zip-ties (<2USD/100pcs)
- rope and eventually some wide straps

Materials needed

You could also add the pain-inducing devices of Your choice (nipple clamps, cbt, chastity, plugs,...)

Once You have it all, start by finding a room with a lockable door - any room door that closes from Your side like bathroom
(You don't want the door to open with You hangin' on)

Scene setup (mock-up on a MDF board)

- Almost close the door, thread the ratchet strap thru the slit, measure the distance from the top of the door, and tie a simple knot (the distance is to the lowest point of the strappado, from there You only go up)
- pass it over the door, and when closed, test the strength...
- with a couple feet(<2m) of strap or rope, link two metal rings and pass it thru the lower (one inch/3cm) side of the door
- Closing the door, You are now inside and there are three points of attachment on the door
- tie Your ankles, thread the rope thru rings and the ratchet hook
- Leave roughly the same length between ankle tie and rings as You suppose to be able to raise Your hands
- tie Your hands (I use quick release zip-ties) at the back, raise them to the ratchet and hook them on the turnbuckle
- The turnbuckle and carabiners will provide enough length to handle the ratchet
- when ready start pulling up (and being dragged back to the door...)
...
I'm here to answer any question, but it's dead-simple!

I also use two one-pint (1/2l) water bottles linked to nipple clamps... They create the pain I strive for...

Have fun! Repeatedly,
