ASP Hinge Handcuffs represent a major advance in both the design and construction of wrist restraints, incorporating the practical features requested by today's officers on the street — with input from officers and instructors in over 80 nations where ASP currently conducts training. The result? A stainless steel handcuff that weighs less than standard models, with a unique design that can accommodate the largest wrist, while at the same time safely secure the small wrists of females and juveniles. Lighter than all competitive models without compromising strength or performance.
To put it simply, ASP is changing the future of handcuff use. An interlocking, unitized frame of high strength stainless steel is forged on custom-built progressive dies. The cuff is then over-molded with ordinance-grade polymers, making it stronger and lighter. Cuffing a suspect is now easier, more efficient, safer and faster.
Flat contact face makes the cuffs easier to apply — and they will not fail to engage. Complex “keyhole up” training procedures are no longer necessary; now there is a keyway and double-lock slot on each side of each restraint, with a readily visible double-lock warning bar. 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 eradicate the need for back-loading. Color-coding of restraints is now possible.
