New! ASP Forged Aluminum Ultra Handcuffs Model 450 HIGH SECURITY KEY [NIJ]
These are the newer ASP Ultra Cuff in Forged Aluminum (or Aluminium in the UK) with high security blue locking mechanism.
These handcuffs require a special key which has a split in it. However you can modify existing keys by using a hacksaw to put a thin split in the bit, if you are careful. This mechanism makes them very hard to pick open without having a key.
You only get 1 key with them....... Normal keys will NOT work in these handcuffs!
They are very light weight, about 205g but are very strong.
The locking mechanisms can be removed and replaced depending on the need (change of level of security or repair etc)
They are way more rugged than the older thinner more bendy polymer coated versions.
They are comfortable and offer an arresting officer/security the ability to quickly disengage the double lock, undo the cuffs to adjust them and quickly double lock again using the key in the keyway, instead of having to remove the key and activate the slot to double lock. Which is a nice addition.
I highly can recommend this pair of ASP cuffs. They are a very worthy new design and are NIJ certified.
