ASP Hinged Handcuffs were designed in the field. Inputs and suggestions of its design and performance came from officers and instructors in over 80 nations where the ASP brand present conducts training. As an end result, the design of ASP handcuffs add in the practical features most requested by officers on the street; stainless steel material that weighs less than standard designs. Chain cuffs are flexible and more easily applied during a confrontation. A flat contact bow improves application.
Complex “keyhole up” training procedures are no longer needed in this handcuff. It features 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. The frame geometry, deep set teeth and precision smooth action eliminate the need for backloading. Lock Assemblies are readily replaced.
