  • ASP Hancuff cases.

    I have been through (3) sets of ASP handcuff cases. Finally sent them back to the factory, cause I got tired of spending $20-$30 per case. They agreed to replace them, since they are coming apart at the seems, which is glued rather than stitched, but they won't ship them till December.....WTF people, how can you not have your own product? They offered to replace them with every different style that I cannot carry due to department regulations. They also offered to swap for double cuff cases, but wanted me to pay the difference. Not that I am cheap, but they are inconveniencing me, why should I pay?

    Love the cuffs, customer service was polite and prompt, but WTH?

    What style are you using?


    I just bought their open top basketweave ones and there stitched.


    I love them. I didn't like the other brands because they were hard to close, these are easier.

      Plain leather. Can't have open tops.

            If you do need open top Safariland has some to fit the lite weight models. I believe it is the 90H but i would have to double check

                I had the same problem with the ASP case. I went to ASP and they replaced them with the double style. They offered to replace them with which ever style I preferred. I think the new ones are stitched. They didn't seem very surprised when I showed them how it was coming apart.

                    The cuffs are awesome. I've heard some people complain about safety issues with them, but I have yet to have anyone actually give me a real-world problem with them.

                      I have been using the ASP cuffs for a few years now, without a hiccup. And the case has held up. Maybe it's because I am wearing the nylon one though. Anyway love the cuffs though quick and easy to use.

                        You guys can have my ASP cuffs... ick. Lots of cool features, but I've had some real-world issues with the cuffs. Nothing like cold, hard steel, of S/W or Peerless.

                          Like what kinds of issues? I've heard lots of people say they have issues, but no one is able to tell me what. The one issue I've heard is that the bow can get on the outside of the double strap. I've demonstrated that that can happen with Peerless, Hiatt and S&W cuffs also. I also feel that you should not be putting that kind of stress on a cuff. We are not trained to use cuffs as control devices, but as restraints. If you don't want to say your problems in public, please IM me.
                          Thanks

                            Issues: Yes, the bow went outside of the double strap on two different individuals we were fighting with. One standing up, one ground fight. As the cuffs went on the individuals arms were still moving and I assume put an amount of stress on the arm in which the APS cuffs cannot withstand.

                            And this hasn't happened to my peerless or S&W... not saying it can't happen, but what I carry on my belt is what I'm comfortable with and what I know works. That's why my ASP cuffs sit in my duty bag and the S&W cuffs are on my belt.

                            As for the stress - the ASP cuffs need to put up with the stress, you don't always get the perfect handcuffing scenario. It doesn't matter how much training or what cuffing technique you're using.

                            Everyone has their opinion, mine is that the current design ASP cuffs are junk. But that's my opinion. S&W and Peerless continue to work for me.

                              The only problem I have had witht he ASP is certain cuff keys not working on them. Mainly on the key hole that is in the middle on the back side. I know the ASP single bar can pass the latch but so do the S&W I have. Also, just listen for the clicking. I have always been under the impression that if they are still struggling I'm not going to be trying to cuff I'm going to be taking care of the struggling. I realize there are goign to be different circumstances but all you have to do is listen for the clicking. It's not like they are quiet and you need a stethescope to hear them lock.
