Quick Q:

If I do partial suspension by standing and leaning forward (like the woman in the ratchet video), what happens if I fall backwards when I pass out? The pressure will be taken from my neck so presumably I will then wake up? How likely is it I would fall backwards?
You'd fall and the rope will tighten because of your body weight.

Whatever happens after you pass out is going to be more effective than what you do when you’re awake because you’re unconscious self isn’t going to care if your full weight is in it. Having the pressure come off your neck for 1 or 2 seconds isn’t going to wake you up, but if anything your legs would buckle and your collapse more than anything. Once you get knocked out your weight is gonna drop like a sack of potatoes and you AINT waking up from that so long as the rope is good on both ends

Can I test things by holding the material over the suspension point in place? I've been trying with a robe tie, and I've only really managed to get to fading vision a handful of times, and even then it came on very slowly. I've lost count how many times I've tried. I'm not sure if the material is too wide to tighten enough, or perhaps there isn''t enough pressure due to my holding it in place.

I'm gonna cbt soon with full suspension. I live in the countryside and have only 1 neighbour and I have a shed. In the shed I can perfectly place the rope on the ceiling log and do full suspension. I tried partial and it does not work properly

@everyone: Where exactly do you have to put the rope in the neck area? Above the adams apple or below?

My only problems at all with partial have been with the ligature. But to each his own, best of luck.

Does it really matters to find the sweet spot? Because, the rope will move up, when we go unconscious..against the chin

Not really. In my experience, the main thing is to avoid hitting the trachea.
Thats what the literature says, its a matter of preference, as long as trachea isnt compressed..people have died with ligature at the top, middle and bottom of the neck..

Have you been able to pass out, with different positions on the neck?

When I experimented, the position of the rope on the front of the neck didn't make much dfference to me. YMMV. I placed the knot on the trachea, but slightly under or over it worked. According to the literature, the position of the knot is usually the back of the head, but I found the front much better.

Been running tests with this method for the past week or so. Hopefully I'll have the privacy to actually go through with it soon.

Has anybody ever had the slip knot you're using around your neck just kind of come untied? I was testing and almost fell flat on my face. I'm assuming maybe my hair somehow got caught on the running end and pulled the knot out?

What kind of knot are you using? And what kind of rope?

Things to consider:
-with slippery and smooth synthetic ropes knots are more prone to come undone
-pull the knot tight
-allow at least one inch of the loose end sticking out of the knot
-choose a more appropriate knot
-knot tied wrong, it happens

Hello,
I posted this as a new thread but was told to also post it here.
I tried to hang myself yesterday but it didn't work. I read the hanging thread but still don't know what went wrong. On the pictures you see my installation. The only tree I found was for partial hanging. The diameter of the rope is only 12 mm I think because I couldn't buy any one thicker at the store. But it is very strong.
I weight about 75 kg. I put the knot at the back of my head and the rope above my addams apple.
But I didn't black out. I tried to adjust the rope at different angles. I never passed out as people wrote here. The longest I could hold my breath was 15 seconds, but than I stopped because the rope was just chocking me and I was still conscious. Afterwards I have red marks from the rope so I think the pressure was enough.
I also have another rope (see in the pictures). It is thicker (16 or 18mm diameter I think), but the surface is very silky while the oder one is rougher).

Are you pushing your head forward or down? Don't ease into it, drop your weight quickly and down. I can black out in about 5 seconds.

Blessed are the ignorant of survived hanging effects, for theirs is courage and the chance of success.
