    I think the point is being missed.
    Are you writing this article to get away from the police? They use procedures like cuffing behind the back to make it more difficult and the zip ties are heavy duty type so you can’t break them with your hands and arms tied behind your back. Cutters or scissors must be used to remove the zip ties.
    I think the majority of criminals that tie a person up to assist with committing their crime will tie the hands in front because it is easier for the criminals.
