  • handcuff maintenance

    recently my handcuffs started sticking across the top hinge, can this be fixed with wd-40 or is there something better that works?
    Thanks

    I personally would use a synthetic weapons lubricant since its formulated to function as a "dry lubricant" thereby minimizing the collection of dirt or dust.

    Never ask a man if he served in the Marine Corps! If he earned the title "Marine" he will tell you, if he didn't, there is no need to embarrass him.

      Our Armorer/Locksmith has vowed to shoot anyone that gets near any of his equipment with WD-40.

      I believe he would do it.

        I found that Break Free CLP work and a Q-tip to absorb the freed rust work pretty well for this type of thing.

          I sprayed down 2 pair of cuffs last weekend with wd-40 because they were sticking.

                Gun oils are good but check and see if the cuffs aren’t bent.

                  Smrtblue,
                  Clean them as best you can, and at every opportunity, keep working them...over...and over....and over!!!!Instead of WD-40, try a graphite like a locksmith uses...heck the locksmith at the joint might even have some! If that doesn't work, maybe it's time to get a new set of cuffs.
