Naturally, Yossie's prisoner is required to hold their wrist, ankle or neck down and close to the anvil while he hammers over the ends of the rivets. But Yossie says that's half the fun! The hammer and anvil ritual is an important part of being shackled, and while Yossie is pounding away his guest can fantasize about medieval dungeons, chain gangs or blacksmiths. By the way, the folded black-and-white cloth in the photo below is a striped jail suit from PX Direct
. Yossie mentioned the importance of having his prisoner put the jail suit on before
hammering the rivets closed, although he's having another jail suit suit made with velcro seams so it can be easily removed for washing and bathing. What a great idea!
