  • Hiatt Speedcuffs

    While watching "Hot Fuzz" I noticed the odd handcuff cases they had on their bat belts....I've never seen anything like it before. I tried to do some research and came up with Hiatt Speedcuffs. Anyone have any experience with these? Are the Hiatt Speedcuffs and Hiatt Rigid Speedcuffs two different models? I noticed plenty of places you can get these cuffs here in the U.S. but pretty much cant find a single place that offers any variety of handcuff cases outside of the UK. It looks like they'll take up a lot of room on the belt, but I was thinking about checking them out. If I don't like em at least I'll have another neat pair of cuffs in the war bag.

    Also, anyone know if they'll be discontinuing them? It looks like Hiatt was bought out by Safariland and Safariland doesn't seem to be advertising them.

    Isn't that just like a hinged cuff? That will only take up more room? Seems like a waste of time/money to me. Just my .02 cents.

      Rigid handcuffs are in almost universal use by police forces in the UK. The attached link gives you a good idea of how they are used.

        sorry man... ur a little off. They are a fully rigid handcuff that have their primary functions in pain compliance and increased prisoner security, once you get them on of course.

        Doesnt take long to make a subject who is resisting squeal with those things... they hurt like a ****in bitch!!!

        Flashlights: Surefire Peacekeeper P1R (Belt)
        Handcuffs: S&W 100's

          I have a pair of Hiatt Ultimate Cuffs. They are foldable but pop rigid when taken from the case. They are pretty boss. Easy to draw and when they are on people they make cuffed escorting very easy. We do that quite a bit in the jail. Only down side I was told we can't put people in the restraint chair with rigid cuffs. The ultimate cuffs use the same Bianchi Accumold holder as the ASP cuffs. It sticks out a little more than a normal cuff case but not enough to make a difference. I carry a pair of S&W 100's front left and the Hiatt's on right rear. I have had mine for a few months but I had to wait a while before I got them. Due to being bought out their availability in the US has almost come to a halt. I prefer them over chain or hinged cuffs. ASP also makes a rigid cuff now so if you can't find the Hiatt there is another option.

            handcuffwarehouse.com lists the ASP rigid cuffs for $76.50!

            For that price I think I'll hold out for the Hiatt's! haha

                Isn't that just a hinged cuff? So we all agree that a hinged cuff is cheaper and does the exact same thing as these Hiatt's?

                I am sorry, these [Hiatt's] make no sense to me. I understand they hurt and may create pain compliance. But a hinged cuff does the exact thing, but they fold and take up less room on the belt. And if I twist a chained cuff, they hurt too. Not to mention, a chained cuff is easier to get on the non-cooperative subject.

                  I understand that you can get hinged cuffs cheaper.....I have 2 pair of Smith hinged cuff's myself. I was referring to the "ASP Rigid Cuffs" $76.50

                      Just looked at copquest.com they have all their Hiatt cuff listed now as Safariland cuffs. The model number is still the same for the Ultimate Cuffs (UL-1). Also for a pretty neat holder check out Peter Jones ILG it's a British companty that makes duty gear (or kit, depending on which side of the pond you are on). I have wanted to try one of their OC holders but $$$ doesn't allow.

                        I did check out Peter Jones and Price Weston Leather. Neither ship to the U.S.

                        PWL does have a branch in USA, I e-mailed them to ask about products because their web-site doesn't look like it offers the cuff holders for the Hiatt's. I'm still awaiting a reply.

                          Lamperd Less Lethal, a Canadian company is an importer of Peter Jones stuff. I know they carry the OC holder and the baton holder. They might be able to get the cuff holder.

                            I know this is an old thread but Bianchi is currently making a nylon version of the carrier for speed cuffs. I was in Ireland a few years ago and a friend traded a set of ASP chain cuffs for a set of speed cuffs. I have used them multiple times on meth heads & those are the only ones that got enough pain compliance. Had one a few months ago that a rookie cuffed with a set of chain cuffs he nearly got her weapon after knocking the wind out of her really lucky I had these stuck in my leg pocket. I just wish they made leg shackles or her car would still have a window. He broke a hobble, hit a backup officer in the groin wearing a set of leg irons. All over a domestic violence call with a 3 month old involved. They wonder why South Carolina has one of the highest domestic violence calls, assaults and murders in the country. Final charge was assault 3. That wouldn’t have been done if I hadn’t had to get a hepatitis A vaccine & AIDS test. I can guarantee you once you get used to these cuffs even the folding & locking version you’re gonna want them at the very least in your war bag. I’ve carried department issue S&W 100 & 300 series. Bought my own ASP cuffs when they first came out & after the Irish gift I broke down and spent $14 more a pair for Hiatts caught them on sale lasted longer than my M300 which won’t double lock after 12 years & no longer even department issued they went to Peerless & Hiatt.
