Handcuffs for sale, Law Enforcement Handcuffs

Handcuffs are physical restraint devices designed to secure an individual's wrists close together. They comprise two halves, linked together by a chain, hinge or in the case of rigged cuffs - a bar. Each half of the handcuff has a rotating part which engages with a ratchet which is closed around a person's wrist. Usually done to prevent suspected criminals from escaping police custody, a person cannot move their wrists more than a few inches apart, making many tasks difficult or impossible.

Handcuffs with double locks have a lock-spring which when engaged, usually using the top of the key, stops the cuff from ratcheting tighter to prevent the subject from tightening them. Tightening could be intentional or by struggling. When tightened, handcuffs may cause nerve damage or loss of circulation. Double locks also make picking the locks more difficult.

Fetters, shackles, footcuffs or leg irons are a kind of physical restraint used on the feet or ankles to allow walking but prevent running and kicking.

Thumbcuffs are a metal restraining device that lock thumbs in proximity to each other.


History

In the past, police officers typically handcuffed people with their hands in front of them. Since the mid-1960s, behind-the-back handcuffing has now become the standard. The vast majority of US police academies teach their recruits to apply handcuffs so that the palms of the suspect's hands face outward after the handcuffs are applied. The Jacksonville, Florida Police Department and the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department are notable exceptions, as they favor palms-together handcuffing. In addition, suspects are handcuffed with the keyholes facing up (away from the hands) to make it difficult to open them even with a key or improvised pick.
