The most widely used and popular type of hand restraint is the hand cuff. In this article I will inform you about the 2 most common hand cuffs; the chain hand cuff and the hinge hand cuff. I will explore how they operate, advantages and disadvantages.

The chain hand cuff:

·         The chain handcuff is the most popular type of handcuff on the market today used by a wide array of consumers; personal, military, corrections officers, police officers and security guards.

·         It is comprised of two halves linked by a chain approximately 2″ in length keeping the restrained persons wrist close together helping the restrainer control them.

·         Each cuff has a rotating side that ratchets into the stationary side. With the cuff open you place the wrist in the middle and close the rotating side into the stationary side, thus locking the cuff. The cuff will not back out without the key.

·         When both wrists are cuffed, the person has limited movement.

Advantages:

·         Double lock to prevent over tightening during transport.

·         Durable and rust resistant.

·         Most hand cuffs use the same type of key.

·         Stores and retrieves in and out of the holster with one hand.

·         Very little instruction or training is need to effectively operate them.

       Disadvantages:

·         The chain allows for more movement than other types of hand restraints.

·         Without a double lock, it allows the cuff to over tighten, in some cases creating too much force.

·         If not properly applied the cuff can be defeated.

Hinge handcuff:

·         Corrections officers prefer these cuffs over the chain type because it gives them better control over the inmate.

·         They work the same way as the chain type, but they are connected by a hinge making them more ridged.

·         Unlike the chain, where the hands and wrists have some movement, the hinge doesn’t allow the wrists to move together or apart at all.

   Advantages:

·         The hinge makes all movement of the hands virtually impossible.

·         Easy to manipulate the person cuffed by twisting the cuff.

·         With a double lock and the cuff applied correctly the cuff cannot be defeated.

·         Most hand cuffs use the same type of key.

       Disadvantages:

·         Storage and retrieval are difficult.

·         Harder to apply.

·         Proper training and instruction is needed to effectively use this kind of hand restraint.

·         May cause a lot of pain to the person being cuffed. 

Conclusion:

·         Hand cuffs are the perfect tool to immobilize a person’s hands and give you control. Most hand cuffs come in different finishes like blued, chromed, or powder coated.  As with any personal security and self defense product be sure to train and practice with them.  Remember the best time to learn your lesson about personal security and self defense is before something happens.
