  • Handcuff preference

    Hello:

    What company do you like for handcuffs? We are issued S&W but most of us use secondary handcuffs due to key way placement and double lock issues with those (especially during combative encounters). I purchased a pair of Peerless as recommended by someone on shift but I noticed they are somewhat smaller than my issued. I was later told Peerless tends to run smaller than other companies. Anyone have a favorite brand that they would recommend?

    Thanks

    S&W model 100's. Never had any double locking problems but then again I'm not trying to get them double locked when someone is acting up.

        I have used both S&W and Peerless during my career and honestly use whatever is issued. ASP are "ok" but my money is on the others

        Just stay with one of the two major brands

              No votes for Hiatts?
              Getting shot hurts! Don't under estimate the power of live ammo. A .22LR can kill you! I personally feel that it's best to avoid being shot by any caliber. Your vest may stop the bullet, but you'll still get a nice bruise or other injury to remember the experience.

                I prefer Peerless, but I've had that brand since I started. I haven't checked to see if they fit smaller than S&W, but I've encountered more people with small wrists than large ones. I think this probably is a Glock vs. S&W debate. You'll do fine with either or both brands as long as you're comfortable with the manual of arms. (A few years ago, I would have said Glock vs. SigSauer, but that was then and this is now.)

                I do have a set of Hiatts handcuffs, but having been a sergeant for most of my career, I don't hook people up as much as I did in my youth. I don't think I ever used them in the real world. Peerless and S&W seemed smoother, but the Hiatts (purchased as a Safariland product) seemed good to go.

                  I do like that Peerless comes in different colors (I carry a set of pink ones)

                      I'm not saying Peerless or Hiatt's were any better than other manufacturers, but I preferred them since they had button style locking. I know S&W made some in button style, but they were few and far between in my local market. I never ever liked ASP due to their size and torque flex.

                        Peerless. I started carrying a pair of 801's (hinged) as my primary and a pair of 700's (chain) as a secondary early in my career...the chains are noticeably smaller than the hinged, meaning they're better for smaller wrists. Oh, and never get the black ones...you'll be cleaning rust off of them constantly!

                          I strongly prefer peerless hinged. I also have a pair of hiatt hinged for smaller wrists. I've never run into the problem of someone having wrists too large for the peerless, but from time to time I run into people whose wrists are too small for peerless (which is why I bought the hiatts). I used some Smith and Wessons for a few years and didn't really care for them.


                          Peerless.

                            I used hinged while in the Air Force, but for some reason, the Army won't allow me to without "justification"...
