Tire Restraints

A stack of tires slipped over the torso creates a foolproof restraint

Just saw this in a Kool-Aid commercial used as a clip in a Spoony review. Having a stack of tires around your torso is impossible to escape from.

    The Elite Squad features this, with the addition that the victim is set on fire.

    This is how the boss fight against Buzz Lightyear goes down in the Toy Story video game. You cannot directly hurt him, but you can cause a loose tire in the play area to bounce around; if it bounces onto Buzz, he'll get caught in it. However, he breaks free the first three times; the fourth time he finally goes down for the count.

    Was the standard form of attack for Batman and Robin against mooks in the Superfriends cartoon.

    Well, why the hell not? That sounds like an excellent name to me.

    I like that name too.

    I can't think of a specific example, but I've seen this in a number of superhero cartoons as a way of dealing with electricity-powered villains.

    About the practice known as Necklacing:

    I don't think this fits here. Necklacing is not a way to contrain a person but to make the person suffer an extremely agonizing death. Either the victim is bound inside the tire stack anyway or he or she has no way to escape because typically the murderers stay near while the tire stack is set on fire.
