The hostages can easily separate themselves. One of the hostages grabs his rope with both hands so that a loose, untwisted loop is made in his rope on the other side of his partnerís rope. Then he tucks the loop through the circle of rope around his partnerís wrist, as youíll soon discover, itís only possible to keep the rope untwisted by moving toward one wrist, not the other, Next, he moves the loop up toward his partnerís fingers. When the first hostage then passes the loop over his partnerís hand and tucks the loop back through the rope, they are free.
