    1st review

    Love the hinged effect especially Smith & Wesson being known for their reputation in restraints. Once placed on the suspect he cant move his hands as much and restricts the swisting of the wrists.

    I like the black better than the silver.

    I'll use nothing but Smith and Wesson! I bought my first pair of S&W standard chain restraints when I was 18, almost 10 years ago, and have used them literally, hundreds of times. Now I use them at least 15-20 times a day in a segregation unit at my facility and they're still going strong. Just bought a pair of the M300's and they feel just as smooth and solid as my original pair of M100's and they're much better to use on high risk offenders due to the better amount of control you have.

    I recently switched to these cuffs from Peerless hinged cuffs. I actually had a prisoner break the hinges on the Peerless cuffs, which were later found to have no manufacturing defect. The Smith cuffs have a more solid hinge design. The only thing keeping them from a 5 star rating is the limit on the size of the wrist that can be effectively cuffed.

    I use these and refer to them as my knuckle head cuffs. You want to be a knuckle head you get to wear these

    Haven't had these cuffs very long yet but really like them so far. Switched from the Peerless hinged cuffs because I had 2 pairs that the locks broke on and came open. I carry the black ones.

    I use S&W cuffs only, just my choice I guess. I keep a pair of these under a keeper up front. I like them for the simple ability of being able to get one cuff on, and instantly have perfect pain complience if the individual decides to try for a cheap shot.

    I found a pair of S&W hinged in the dirt all rusted up. I cleaned them and made sure they were still usable. I still have them and I use them when I am not able to use my S&W chain cuffs.

    I carry and always use these without any problems. They're very heavy-duty and comfortably restrict movement. It's probably impossible to open these if you have a key in your hand. I like the double-lock slider instead of the pin, as it's easier in low-light conditions. They come in blackish and the regular silver.

    I love these handcuffs! these are the only cuffs that I would carry in a jail environment or while your out patrolling the streets, it's great for restricting movement and it's been in my experience impossible to pick (trying to get yourself out of cuffs). Other than Peerless these are the only handcuffs that I would highly recommend having.

    I bought a pair of Mod. 300 last year and i LOVE them...these cuffs not only restrict the suspects movement, but also allow the use of more restrictive placement. in addition if applyed with the cuff keys holes up they are almost impossible to pick. I bought mine at Cuffs4cops.com and got them with my name and the cuff caliper ( a series of numbers along the ratchet and an arrow that shows you how far they have been applied...useful to put on your report... CYA i always say!!!!

    SMITH AND WESSON ARE MY FAVORITE SET OF CUFFS BUT I'M NOT CRAZY ABOUT THE HINGED MODELS SINCE IT DOESNT ALLOW FLEXIBILITY WHEN TRYING TO CUFF SUSPECTS ESPECIALLY WHEN THE SUSPECT IS XL.

    In my opinion smith & wesson cuffs are the best cuffs made. I use both the hinged and the chained with the hinged being my secondary set I also have a set of black chained that i keep with me as well. I have NEVER had any problems with these cuffs. I would recommend these cuffs to anyone in law enforcement.

    I have these as my backup set, I use them more often than my issued set of linked S&W cuffs. Only downside is you have to keep them oiled or they will rust on the hinges.

    I just bought my seconds pair of S&W hinged this morning, so now I will be carrying 2 pair on the street. I have been a fan of S&W cuffs since I joined the Marines in 1992 and wouldn't think of any other company for my restraints. My last department issued Peerless, but I just let them hang from the emergency brake in my squad car. I always carry S&W on my belt. I love the hinge over the chain. Prisoners don't get as much freedom of movement and as was mentioned before, with one cuff on you can get instant pain compliance. In addition, I have 4 more sets of S&W chain cuffs that I keep in my bag in the new squad car, just in case something huge breaks out. Love 'em, worth the money, and I've never had a single problem with a set.

    I take a pair of M 300 on my belt every day ( and a set of chain M100 too), and I'm very happy of them. I found them better than a Hiatts hinged set, that I used before, because their hinge was less flexible, they was smaller and I prefer S&W kind of second lock (sometime the "pin kind" is difficult to use). To tell the true the Hiatts ones use a very shiny steel and I never had any problem of rust or oxide...S&W, especially black ones, need some more maintenance.

    Won't use anything but S&W! My dept issue Peerless chained cuffs broke after 2 months. I've had one pair of S&W's that's lasted me almost 10 years. The teeth are still in great shape, the internals are still tight and responsive and the function is smooth and flawless.

    Better hand grip in back between cuffs when you need to pull up on them or just hands on.

    One reason I like S&W better than the rest is their hinge is stronger, I also like how you can double lock them on top or bottom rather than on the side.

    I carry one pair of these on my duty belt and a pair of 103P. These cuffs are great for everyday arrests. They go on fast and in a hurry there is less fumbling and fit perfectly in the palm of your hand. The double lock is something you either prefer or don't. Having both the push pin and the slide I like both. The slide doublelock on these cuffs is very easy to use, especially in low light or with someone who has a problem staying still. I find the chain cuffs a little better when a suspect is very resistant because they can be manuevered for cuffing easier and it does not matter how you cuff'em just that you get them on.

    These are hands down the best hinged cuff ever made. They offer great control and smooth cuffing. I would however suggest getting them in the 300p series because I hate the standard S&W double lock slot design. I always rate S&W’s at 4 stars because I hate the finish that much, but these are so great I’ll overlook that little detail..just once.

    These were made with officer safety in mind. This is all I use (I'm a small guy) because when the suspect decides to fight after getting the first cuff on, I can still take him down safely. I won't use any other kind!!!
