  • Pen Handcuff Key

    Ok I have seen these used on TV in shows like COPS - I admit I watched it and also watched Baywatch too. I would like to know WHERE I can get my hands on the handcuff keys that look like pens I have seen some LEO use to adjust cuffs on offenders. I am looking for S/W type locks so would appreciate any assistance.

    Any place that sells handcuffs usually. I think I got mine at Galls, but other places have them. I prefer them, and don't like using the standard keys. Having said that....I keep a standard key on my office keys and 1 on my personal keys, 1 in my wallet, and 1 taped on the inside of my glove pouch. Nothing more embarrassing then arresting a subject, having LE show up to take him off your hands and having to borrow a key!

    Also did you know that it is illegal in FL for a private citizen to possess a handcuff key?

      Hi NRM' I think what you're referring to is called the 'Zak Tool' (pictured below)

      $19.95 AUD from LEGear.com.au





      Alternatively... you can get a PR24 replica cuff key @ $9.95 AUD from Signal One




      FWIW I've also seen the 'Zak-Tool' on places like eBay for $9.00 US ($6.00 US P/H)

        Yessssssssssss !!!

        Maelstrom ............ Thanks Mate !!! I have a friend who loses these bloody keys all the time. I have ALWAYS kept one in my wallet, car keys, house keys, work keys (same with fire-alarm box keys) and a spare cuff key on a belt keeper. The Pr24 I had once before and it snapped on me. But I will get my mate to order the other model - $25 AUD for a tool like this is brilliant as I think a few of us will do a bulk order.

        Oh on a stupidity issue, my wife's youngest decided to be an idiot - go into the wardrobe and play with my handcuffs - only trouble was I had all keys with me - he handcuffed himself to a suitcase and had to wait for me to come to his mother's house 6 hours later.

          But it's okay to wear socks with sandals outside a retirement village ?

          Actually handcuffs are restricted items here ............ but you can get the play versions which are pretty strong for about $10.00 - so go figure.

              You're welcome NRM' I'd been looking around and came across those nifty looking key alternatives recently

              Cops Plus looks like a neat place to get duty gear CAPTAIN KOOLAID... but looks like they only ship to US states & Canada

              I'm gonna' have to stop looking at those prices!

                They also have them on ebay as well . Sure you can fine someone ships overseas.

                  They can posses keys by they may not be concealed. Leos , bail agents and Licensed security as well as licensed PIs are exempt.

                    Great= Using an LED on your cuff key to double-lock some dirtbag's cuffs.

                    Not So Great= Doing so, and having the bright-as-the-sun LED on the key end blind you whilst doing the above.

                    A+ for idea, but F- for implementation.
