  • galls key pen

    Does anyone have the Gall's key that looks like a ball point pen? It works with one pair of cuff's but not the other. If you have it, what brands does it work with for you?

        I use one and prefer it over ANY other type of cuff key. From what I've been told(so don't quote me), the only cuffs it won't fit are the federal type of high-risk cuffs....and I've only HEARD(never seen) about those from my days in the academy.

            You mean you CAN'T 'hot wire' a Blackhawk? Bummmmmer....!

            Seriously.....I was told that certain 'federal' cuffs use a key similar to what a Coke machine key uses. All I'm going on is what my academy instructor told us.

              Shooter, I remember seeing handcuffs, years ago, that had Ace (the round keyed)locks in them. But, it has been a while.

              I have one of the Streamlight lighted handcuff keys, and so far, it fits Peerless, S&W, and Hiatts. I also have one of the Galls keys, and in some Peerless cuffs, it's a little tight, but it works.

              Then again, I have a pair of old S&W keys that will fit nearly anything.

                It might be because these are cheap cuffs I bought for $10 made by Rothco at an Army Supply store before the academy started.

                    In my academy last night one of the instructor tore a cadet apart because he brought in a pair of old handcuffs he got at an auction. I think they actually said ACME on them

                      That reminds me, that there is another academy nearby in central NC that had a director telling students to go to pawn shops to get handcuffs and weapons.

                          I know from my days in Fayetteville, NC (next to Ft Bragg) that you can get some very high quality gear for great prices in pawn shops. Lots of army issuue gear as well as some of the finest new/used weapons around. Last time I was their I shot a full auto Uzi with a silencer in a place called jims pawn. No Kidding. But I can see why one would think a that a pawn shop sells mostly crap because in other parts of the US that is often the case. But not in Fayettnam. D

                              I still have my S&W high-security cuff key. It is a round, Coke machine-type key. I don't think we've had them for about 10 years. One pair of cuffs I liked using on high-risk inmates when I was in Courts was a pair of British-made (possibly Chubbs) cuffs which had the loops formed from round steel, not flat, and weighed probably 1-1/2 to 2 pounds.
