  • Belly Chain: Leather vs Chains

    When it comes to belly restraints which do you prefer? The leather style or the chain style.

    My agency is looking at getting a couple. The leather are about 3 times the cost but to me they've always seemed more reliable. What are your thoughts?

    Belly Chain: Leather Vs Chains

    I always used leather when I was in Transport. Occasionally the DOC and some SOs were crossing paths with me and they would have belly chains. They always seemed noisy and cumbersome for people to use. Don't go cheap on the leather ones, either. Our older ones were wide leather and had a large rings to put the handcuffs through. Some of the newer ones had a narrower belt and the ring seemed smaller and looked like more of a hassle to use.

      Short range transports=chains. Longer duration transports=belt.

        We use chains. We have a few old school leather belts for long transports, like out-of-state, but 99% of the time it's chains. Even the parole extradition teams use chains here.
