The patented design of ASP Chain and Hinge Handcuffs provides the safest restraint in the industry. The flat contact surface and smooth action prevents injury during application. All edges of the frame, cheek plate and bow are rounded to minimize the potential for nerve damage. The conical geometry of the cuff securely holds both small and large wrists.
Forged Frame Technology reduces injury potential from excessive lateral stress due to improper handcuff application. The double lock indicator of ASP cuffs is highly visible. It is easily checked to assure activation. Cuffs that test too tight may be loosened and double locked without removing the key from the cuff. The interchangeable Lock Set may be upgraded to a two or three pawl insert. The two-sided lock release is recessed and easily accessed without trauma to the subject. Both the single and double lock are released by turning the key in one direction.
Identifier handcuffs add permanent color options to this world class design. Identifier colors will not crack, chip or fade. They are a permanent, structural component of the handcuff frame and will last the life of the cuff.
Two categories of Identifier cuffs are available. The Law Enforcement Series provides both Chain and Hinge Tactical Handcuffs in blue and gray. Corrections Chain and Hinge cuffs are offered in high visibility yellow and pink. Custom colors are available with a minimum purchase of 1,000 handcuffs.
Identifier handcuffs can readily distinguish the restraints of specific agencies or divisions. They may be used to designate the security threat or medical condition of subjects. They add the final level of safety to the most secure series of handcuffs on the market
