Few people realize that wearing a ring can pose a safety risk.

A ring made of a strong material may get stuck, leading to a serious problem.

If left unattended, it could block blood flow, resulting in amputation.

Of course, Doctors know this.

That’s why they have a few handy ways of getting out of the situation. (Pun intended)

Don’t try to pull it off.

Pulling the ring off the finger is not recommended, as it could aggravate the situation.

There are many ways that can be done to remove it effectively, such as lubrication or relaxation.

Simple & fast shares a trick to easily remove a stuck ring from a finger.

At the start of the video, you can see that a ring lingered on the middle finger.

The said finger was a bit swelled, making it difficult to remove the ring.

She tried to remove it by moving it around the finger and applying a bit of force.

However, the ring remained on the finger despite trying to pull it out.

You just need thread and tape.

The thread needs to be sturdy and fine to make it work.

You need to check if the thread can withstand a forceful tug.

This will come in handy later on in the process.

Slip the thread beneath the ring.

Slowly slide in the thread between the space of the ring and finger.

Pull out a bit of the thread from the other side of the ring while holding it firmly with the other hand.

Wrap the thread around the finger.

Make sure that it is tightly wrapped around the finger.

Wrap it over and over until you pass the lower knuckle of your finger.

Tape the end of the thread.

Once you’re done wrapping the thread, fix its ending with a bit of tape.

You can use adhesive tape to ensure that it will not move out of its place.

Now, unwrap the string.

Starting from the first end of the string just beneath the ring, slowly unwind the string from around the finger.

The ring will move along with the thread while being unwrapped.

Continue moving the string until the ring is removed from the finger.

Some of the viewers were amazed at how easily it could be done.

The video quickly gained 2M views.

One of them said,

” A tip video that was quick, to the point, and not worthless clickbait. Wow! Also this is a great tip. I don’t need it, but I’m sure it would come in handy for my parents a bunch.”

Another commenter left an additional tip to make the trick easier.

He said,

“The nurses in the hospital emergency used this trick to remove my wedding ring. Couple of refinements: Use waxed thread or floss so the ring slips more easily. Also, put the windings closer together to better reduce the swelling.”
