Standard wrist-to-wrist restraint. Even though retired, I still keep a pair in the glovebox; never know where or when that "just in case" incident may occur... "I'd rather have and not need than to need and not have".

    1st review

    Sturdy construction, reputable manufacturer. Stainless steel finish requires minimum cleaning and care with maximum reliability. I don't know many LEO's who want to take the time to keep blued cuffs polished... too much of a pain.

    Like Brother 204 says, reputable company and the ease of cleaning is a huge plus.. I throw mine in boiling water and then give them a shot of lube, and they are ready for the next dirtbag.

    I have only had to restrain one subject as Loss Prevention so far. They worked flawlessly and I'm glad i had these instead of the off-brand the store gave us.

    I use my for educational Purposes i am among a group of students and advisors that teach hands on at my college, so we are constantly getting cuffed....I love these cuffs, i use them quite often and have never had a problem with sticking or locking as some others have and from being on the otherside where we are getting cuffed i am thankful! Plus they are engraved with my name and favorite saying so makes them even more special!

    When doing cuffing drills, i've always felt they were basic, smooth, and easy to use. Don't grab the chain while someone is cuffed though.

    We used to carry these until we received a bulletin advising us that the chain is breakable. Some inmates in a county jail near us had figured it out and it is really quite simple. You don't need to be very strong.

    I still carry two sets of chain cuffs along with my two sets of hinged. The chain cuffs seem to fit smaller wrists better and, as mentioned earlier, it's better to have 'em and not need 'em than the other way around. (I guess it's just the Boy Scout training...LOL)

    The first set I bought was chained S&W, and I still have them! Little bit of light machine oil in the pawl and hinge, and no problems. I like them for the people with smaller wrists. The hinged are for the brutes that need a room in the local bed and breakfast.

    My brother passed down his first pair of S&W handcuffs to me when I followed his footsteps into law enforcement, six years later. I carried them to the academy and for about four years on the street. Altogether, they saw about ten years of heavy use before "giving up the ghost". Not bad at all! I still have them, though their days of restraining the wicked are over.

    EXTREMELY reliable! I've had the same pair of S&W cuffs for almost 10 years and have never had a problem with them and it's not like they just sit in my cuff case...these get almost every day use! They're still going strong. The teeth have not worn down, the springs are still tight and smooth, easy double locking...I LOVE these!. I also own a pair of hinged S&W restraints and love those almost as much.

    I've carried these for longer than I can remember. They fit well in my small hand are are easy to double-lock. A few years ago I had to use my original pair as an impact weapon (ASP wasn't cutting it, I was a week away from getting my TASER, he had a 100 pounds on me and we were on the ground) and lets just say he got alot of stitches in his head and I was fine; these things truly are life savers!

    I have a stainless pair and a blued pair, both Model 100, had these for 10years and they always work great, but the blued ones did rust after I had thought I lost them (they had fallen between my seats on my truck) for about a month during the winter and when i discovered them they were pretty rusted in a couple unless you really need blued ones for tactical reasons, stick with the stainless.

    My department used this S&W model until last year. These cuffs were ideal for cuffing suspects. The chain link design provides the flexability needed when cuffing a suspect who is resisting. We are now using the S&W hinged cuff. Not much flexability, but still gets the job done.
