ASP Hinge Handcuffs
Since hinged handcuffs permit less movement than a chain cuff, they are generally considered to be more secure. Hinged cuffs can be used one-handed to apply pain-compliance/control techniques that are not workable with the chain type of cuff.
ASP Hinge Handcuffs provide a major advance in both the design and construction of wrist restraints. Frame geometry is the result of extensive computer modeling and simulation analysis. Strength potential has been maximized through use of an interlocking, unitized frame. The cuff structure is forged from high strength stainless steel on custom built, high speed, progressive dies. Each restraint is then overmolded with ordnance grade polymer under 75 tons of pressure. The Lock Assembly is unitized and replaceable.
The Hinge Handcuff was designed in the field. Input came from officers and instructors in over 100 nations where ASP currently conducts training. As a result, this ASP design incorporates the practical features most requested by officers on the street. A stainless steel handcuff that weighs less than standard designs.
A flat contact bow improves application. Complex Lkeyhole up M training procedures are no longer necessary. There is a keyway and double lock slot on each side of each restraint. A double lock warning bar is readily visible. Both double and single locks are released by turning the key in a single direction.
Aluminum handcuffs weigh 15% less than steel models and are distinguished by their black bows.
