What is a basket hold restraint?

I heard about something called a basket hold. It is supposedly a way to control an out of control person. What is special about it though, does it give you leverage or something?

    The basket hold is where someone restraining a vulnerable child predominantly stands behind them with the child's arms held in a cross across the front of their chest, and their hands are held, and their movement is restricted by pulling against their arms across the front of their chest.
