Pocket Knife Safety for Kids

You can do the same trick with many folding knives using zip ties. To do this trick, your knife must have a hole in the spine (such as with most Spyderco knives) and a pocket clip that when worn the tip of the knife points up. As shown in the video above by YouTube user WilliamCutting08 you’ll insert a zip tie in the hole and ratchet it down as far as possible. You may have to use a second zip tie if the first one moves wiggles around after being locked down.
