Krishna exhibited His mercy potency, and Mother Yasoda served Krishna with great and increased sincerity. With the combination of these two, Krishna was bound. Vishwanath Chakravarti Thakur says that the “two inches too short” [of the rope used to try and bind Krishna] indicate that in any devotional activity two things are required; the sincere desire and effort of the devotee to serve Krishna, and Krishna’s mercy. Both must be there.
