Those are handcuffs!

Recommended Posts

Why is it you see cool stuff after you retire, and really have no reason to buy it now?

Maybe an exception?

Before I retired, another Parole Agent I worked with was a woman about 5'2" who would take violators back to prison in pink ASP cuffs!

 

PS she was one of the best shots with a 1911 I have ever met!

Is/are ASP those zip tie-like cuffs?

Cool. Is the material anodized or a polymer?

 

Might be both. I got the picture on-line. You may have to go to the ASP website for tech specs.

They are a polymer/steel hybrid cuff. They worked as well as any all steel cuffs. On our unit we all carried 2-3 sets all day, so weight made a difference. But our sex offenders hated going back in those.

When I retired from LE, I owned 9 pairs of handcuffs.  I had two on my duty belt at all times, and the remainder were in my "go bag" in the cruiser.  There was more than one occasion when I used ALL of them at once!  Don't forget, I spent the bulk of my career in high crime, gang infested neighborhoods.

We have a police lady that uses pink because her fellow officers would never return her regular cuffs.  She has no trouble getting hers back now
