* TooDumbToLive: The couple break one of the most intrinsic rules of bondage in that the restrained person must ''always'' be able to escape or call for help if the restrainer is incapacitated for any reason. Likewise metal police handcuffs are not recommended for the same reasons.[[note]] Handcuffs sold for bondage enthusiasts ALWAYS have quick release catches to avert the possibility of the scenario in this novel occurring.[[/note]] Justified in that the fact that he didn't bother with any of the safety measures and insisted on real handcuffs is used deliberately to establish Gerald's character.

There's also the fact that, at the time the novel was written (1992), the internet effectively did not exist for the average person, removing one of the primary means of easily discovering typical safety procedures for this sort of activity. You would have to know someone "in the scene" or do a ''lot'' of surreptitious research, neither of which Gerald is likely to do, not to mention he's not exactly the type who would care that much about his wife's safety anyway.

* CanonWelding: In the 2017 movie, when Jessie is coming to terms with the likelihood that she's going to die when the Moonlight Man returns, Gerald tells her "All things serve the Beam." This could be either a ShoutOut to ''Franchise/TheDarkTower'', or have considerably deeper implications.

* ShoutOut: In the film, “Gerald” calls the dog “Literature/{{Cujo}}”, which is another Stephen King work.

* BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler:Jessie successfully broke free of the handcuffs and she even started a foundation to help victims of sexual abuse. But her husband is still dead, her world was turned completely upside down, and it seems her nights were (and may continue to be) plagued with visions of the Moonlight Man. Though she did confront the “Crypt Creeper” on his court date and said essentially that she’s no longer afraid of him.]]
