    I have a pair of smith and wessons, and a set of asps. The asps are nice because they fit a larger veriety of sized people than the smiths.

    1 set of Hiatts, and a set up ASP with the chain. LOVE the double sides keyhole on both cuffs.

    Um, you're supposed to remove handcuffs after a few hours, they're temporary restraints?
    not when you are transporting inmates. we had some guys with us, in black box restraints, for 5 days.

    When attending the sheriff's academy albeit in 1970, we were taught to use plastic electrical tape to cover the keyway on our handcuffs. Today, they make keyway covers for most types of handcuffs.
    With the US Marshals Service, we were shown a myriad of devices ranging from simple to ingenious built in prisons and on the street or confiscated from prisoners both in federal, state and local facilities meant to be secreted on the body or in one of its cavities suitable for unlocking all but the cam operated ratchets.
    If only that genious could be put to better use.
    Enjoy the day,

    That's what I figured when I went and got my smiths. ASP looks pretty cool but won't be effective unless you were to use some other restraint system. (black box)

    yup

    we are not allowed to detain so we don't carry handcuffs. Now if I am ever on a post where that is an option...I'll ask you guys about which ones are best.
