In reviewing the foregoing number you can see that the importance of the twist given the man's arm cannot be over emphasized. Unless it is turned at least enough to bring his hand palm-up the entire action will be unsuccessful. And when correctly twisted a slight additional turn is an effective way to coax a little snappier action from your captive.

The other very essential portion of this "come along" hold consists of the part p/ayed by the hand and arm holding the victim's coat collar. The grip on the collar must be very solid and it should be far around the person's neck. This will make the knuckles of your hand press against his neck or collarbone.

Looking at the above picture you are probably very doubtful that a one hand grip such as this can be as effective as the attitude of the subject seems to imply. It is, though.
