Description:

These ASP handcuffs provide a major advance in both the design and construction of wrist restraints. Frame geometry is the result of extensive computer modeling and analysis. Strength potential has been maximized through the use of an interlocking, unitized frame. The handcuff structure is forged from high-strength stainless. The flat bow section provides single movement application preventing slippage on wrist. There is a keyway and double-lock channel on both sides of each handcuff, so removing the handcuffs is easier and safer. The red indicator alerts you if the handcuffs are not double locked. ASP Handcuffs • Lightweight weighs less than 9 oz. • Interlocking unitized frame • Dual keyway • Deep set teeth for extra security • Radiused edges • One direction unlock • Red double-lock indicator • Includes standard handcuff key • Fits in standard hinged handcuff pouches • Serialized

    These are probably the best cuffs I have ever used. Lightweight, easy to handle and idiot proof since the locks are on both sides. Perfect for a rookie with little cuffing experience!

    i love these cuffs and use them all the time, but just this week i had them on a very combative subject and he actually bent the hinges.he was an unusually strong subject and im not sure if he was on drugs but he bent the hinges pretty good while he was wearing them!!over all though i love these cuffs...he was trying hard to break them and couldnt, only bent them so i cant complain about that too much

    These cuffs have a serious flaw in the double tines. Placing the double tines into the seatbelt clip with a few pounds of twisting force can often pop the hinge pin. There is some wrist pain in doing this, but if a person is all doped up it can be done.

    Not a big fan of part plastic part metal handcuffs. Plastic=flexcuffs, metal=standard issued good ol' fashion cuffs. Heard horry stories of people breaking these cuffs with ease. Also, not thats its that big a deal, but you have to buy a separte cuff holder.

    I just switched to these cuffs not to long ago and love them. I especially love the key holes on both sides. A little pricy and you have to get the cases that fit them, but, other than that, I won't switch back.

    A combination of reviews: They are idiot-proof, a must have. I have had these cuffs for more than a year now and they are the ones I go to first. They are lightweight and relatively strong, smooth action once you break them in and with angle bars for easy cuffing and key holes on both sides for switching cuffs they are great. The colored lock indicator is a nice touch - though can be difficult to see in low light conditions. The only problem is if you carry them hanging - the arms have a tendency to feed through all the way and not be ready in the "Loaded Position". I heard they have new Aluminum cuffs out there that are 20% lighter; however I would stay with theses. A great addition to any officer/deputy/trooper/correcional officer who uses cuffs on a daily basis. I would also like to see more teeth on the arms so they could be used for juveniles and females.

    Pretty good set. The locks can get a little clunky and you have to make sure you dont lock a cuff after opening. I think they are working to improve the design thru feedback so let them know of any concerns.

    I have used these on combative subjects, and they held up well. Only issue occurred when the hinge bent while a subject kept twisting his wrists attempting to get out of them. Also I need to carry a Streamlight cuff key to use these at night since the cuffs are black and it's hard to find the key holes if I am not in a well lit area.

    Will not EVER use these. I've seen them defeated several times by offenders. They can twist and flex while on the offenders wrists and in doing this, they break or pop open. To me, they are a liability and a risk that i'm not going to take. ASP makes alot of other good products, but missed the mark on these.

    As I begin to get older I have noticed that I want things lighter I have started to exchange all the heavy-duty gear for the lighter gear. I have been using the asp handcuffs with the chains for almost a year now and I love them. The only fact is you really can’t use them on females or young teens without buying another piece to shrink the cuff. But as for any other person they are great and I wouldn’t be without them.

    I've heard bad stories about these handcuffs, but I'll just speak from my experience. I love the ASP hinged and chain cuffs. Don't judge it because it has plastic: there's metal underneath the plastic, and they seem very sturdy. I've never had any problems with them. There's plenty of color choices. I think it's great to have the keyhole on both sides, and I love the easy-to-see double-lock indicator. I ultimately go to hinged S&W cuffs before these, just because people are tricky in hiding handcuff keys and I've been able to get them unlocked quite easily with a key in my hand.

    I have the non hinged version (last years x-mas gift). I can only carry them off duty. Our department won't allow the use of ASP cuff's for arrests on duty. Where I live we have 4 to 500 pound Samoan and Tongan men that could probably break these. Not a big fan of the plastic. Last guy I hooked up during an off-duty situation kept twisting and pulling trying to pull his hands out, resulting in superficial injuries that he demanded medical attention. I handed him off to local PD who were not happy. Now I just carry my issued peerless.

    I have 2 sets of chained ASP cuffs. I actually prefer these to the Peerless for their lighter weight and smoother actions, but I still don't have proper cuff cases for the ASP cuffs (Non-standard sized). I think the key holes on both sides are handy in some ways but can also be a serious safety & security too if a good proper pat search isn't conducted.

    I carry two with me. I would say they are twice as light as a pair of smith and wessons. I have never had them fail. I also like the way you can unlock them on either side. Only bad side to them is that you have to buy a asp holder. They will not fit in a regular handcuff case.

I have had a power lifter friend weighing in over 300 lbs. and benching +500 lbs. and was unable to break the cuffs but did complain about hurting himself while trying to break them. I know this guy to be the toughest guy in my area so if he can't break them I don't think anyone in a normal state of mind will.

    I have been using these cuffs for several months and have come to love them. They are a little more forgiving on larger suspects than my Gall's hinged set, however due to some questions of tensile strength of the cuffs I continue to carry my other hinged set and a set of chains (Peerless at that). If you get the ASP cuffs, hinged or chain, don't forget to buy the case, as they are oversized and do not fit in standard cuff cases.

    I was exposed to these 'cuffs during the ASP Tactical Handcuffing Instructor course. I have used them on duty several times since I got them. They are light weight which is always a good thing on an already heavy duty belt. The plastic covering seems to protect my hands while putting them on resisting subjects. The key holes on both sides are a major plus especially when changing 'cuffs when the subject is transferred to the Transport Van. The best feature is that you only have to turn the key towards the bow to unlock them even when they're double locked. The lock can also be upgraded to a higher security lock.

    These are my primary use handcuffs. Being hinged, they make speed cuffing a breeze. The action is extremely smooth and fast too. Plus I like how you exhibit greater control over who you have them on. Most of the Officers in my department don't use hinged handcuffs, so when the frequent flyers get to where these, they are literally stunned when they can't fidgit around in them!

    Overall I am happy with my hinged ASP cuffs. I'm not sure I would have purchased them for myself (received as a gift) but they have served me well. There are some downsides to the cuff, such as the arm can easily miss the interior of the cuff if some degree of force is applied. Admittedly, this has only happened when I have "played" with them; nothing of this sort has occurred in the field. I like the fact that handcuff keyholes are located on both sides of the cuff. My reasoning is this: I carry a spare hidden handcuff key, in the event of officer hostage scenario. Knowing that I always have a keyhole facing that key is a huge help. On that topic, I know a number of Officers carry that hidden key, but how many have actually practiced using it and freeing oneself from the cuffs? Another point to remember is that if you can access the keyholes, the bad guys can too. Always thoroughly search your prisoners.

    First of all, I hear a lot of "but they're plastic!" Technically true, but a more accurate description would be ordinance-grade polymer overmolded on a steel frame under 75 tons of pressure. These are NOT fragile restraints.

    I have the aluminum version and they are hella light! The ratcheting action is buttery-smooth compared to my Smiths, which have always been stiff despite my best efforts to remedy. The only potential shortfall is having key access on both sides. Sure it's a convenience, but if you train consistently and preload properly, you should be applying with your locks up the majority of the time, particularly with hinged cuffs. One star deducted for this security compromise.

    With regard to the holster issue, it's a problem. I carry two pair up front and am limited therefore to the Asp holster. That, however, is not Asp's fault. One can hope that more manufacturer's will jump on board...

    I think I would rather stick to the good old-all-metal cuffs.

    Like the keyway and doule lock on both sides of cuffs, they are lightweight and durable

    These are the best cuffs to carry ! They are easier to handle and use, especially when you are struggling with a perp or inmate . The double lock and key hole on both sides make it easier to take off when necessary.

    Many officers are skeptical of these handcuffs due to the plastic parts, however the molded plastic frame on these handcuffs are actually reinforced with metal underneath. I have used metal handcuffs that are difficult to ratchet even when properly lubricated. With the ASP handcuffs the ratcheting is always quick and very smooth. I highly recommend these handcuffs!

    They work great for "Routine" use but I much prefer "Cold Steel"

    I like them. they are smooth. dual key ports and double locks. just don't like that you can't put them in a regular duty holster.

    I love these cuffs. I carry three (3) sets of ASP cuffs on my belt while on duty. Two (2) sets of chain cuffs in a double-cuff case in the rear and one (1) set of hinge cuffs in an open-top case in front. I carry the hinge cuffs while off duty as well. I consider the hinge cuffs my "douche bag" cuffs because if I have to chase, spray, tase, or fight with you then you get the hinge cuffs with your wrists stacked on top of each other just as a final "F you" for breaking the law. Great cuffs.

    Man these are great. I have had to use them with my other to secure a real bad person (Child Molestor). They brought a smile to my face, Oh I am not to be happy, Yes I was "grining" at the look on their face. I know it is spelled wrong, just read between the lines.

    I carry the aluminum version of these and I love them. Very lightweight and easy to put on.
