Principle

Present no chink in your armor through which the enemy can attack.

Effect

You are as strong as the weakest link in your defense system.

The enemy will prod and probe your defenses to test their efficacy and to seek out the weak points and attack these with vigor.

You are also as strong in advance as the weakest part of your attack.

Invoking

In an encampment, city or other gathering of people, ensure the boundary in defenses cover all angles with sufficient firepower to repel all potential attacks.

In a military advance, use a seamless wall of armor to defend the advancing troops. Keep appropriate defenses to the sides and behind in readiness for the enemy's flanking attacks.

In attacks advance with a consistent wall of weaponry and troops so, as you tighten the noose, there is no escape for your enemy.

Analogy

In argument, present only evidence with a consistent level of evidence to back it up. Beware of the other side destroying your position by attacking weak minor points.
