  • engraved handcuffs ?

    I was thinking about getting my handcuffs engraved with my name on it. So I was wondering has anyone else done this and where did they get it done ? Also what did it cost you ?

    Thanks

    Yes I had it done in 1980. I took it to a jewelery store and had him do it. Back then it cost me something like $2.00 a pair.

      Name's okay; serial number's a little better. Annonimity is sometimes better.

      Of course, engraving "This End Up" or "Not Built for Comfort" might be pretty cool.

        Engraving is good. Last 4, badge #.
        Remember, you can leave a $20 bill out and no one will touch it. Lay down your handcuffs or flashlight....POOF!!!

          as i've been told the best thieves are always cops. i got two pair of asp chain cuffs with laser engraving name, dept and tightness gauge. i paid 28 and some change a piece. they came with free laser engraving. i didn't realize but i could have gotten my id on them too. cuffs4cops is the site i got them from. they are about 31 and change now. i have had mine since last oct and love them.

            Why not borrow an engraver and do it yourself? It won't be elegant, but so what?

              I bought an engraver at Walmart/Lowe's/Kmart, someplace like that, many years ago and engraved my initials on my cuffs. Doesn't have to be pretty. Who's going to be impressed by them?

              I don't think the engraver cost that much, and you can use it to mark other things (tools, etc.).

                An engraver is about $20. A friend of mine bought one and a bunch of us engraved our cuffs with our badge numbers.

                  I had mine engraved at a shop that did trophys and plaques. Since then I aquired a DIY etcher. Not as easy to use as an engraver but looks letter.

                    Doesn't your community relations bureau have engravers that they lend to the public?

                      Check with some of the guys at your PD, I'll bet somebody has an engraver. We have a few at the PD and most of the guys have engraved thier badge number on handcuffs and flashlights. It doesn't have to be pretty or have logos on them, just an identifier.

                        Check with a trophy shop. The best jobs on my 'cuffs were done there.

                          I had one of mine done. Just did the last name. The store did it for free.

                            Jewelers, 1969, two initials (handsomely done, by the way), both cuffs, fifty cents.

                              I just used a knife blade to mark my initials on them.
