  1. good tip but another example of over safety. how the hell is a kid gona get their neck caught in that when its inside or even outside? You would have had to have had it tied in a nose for that to happen.

  2. It only happens to my red/navy/white gym shorts and my blue/white/black shorts nearly all the time I wash them. They need to add some sort of stopper to prevent this happening and stop adding the crappy platsic that breaks and deteriorates overtime.

  3. The thing they don't realize is that the injuries are from kids who try to use it as a hangmans rope.

  4. 1:03 That "safety warning" was incredibly American. Like I'm sure tonnes of kids are killed every year by drawstrings. 🤣

  5. Patience nothing, got it out in like 5 minutes. Great video, i no longer throw away shorts and sweats when the drawstring gets tucked inside.

  6. safety pin opened up half way and wouldn't go further. Pulling it out unthreaded and wrecked an expensive hoodie. Great idea assholes
