🚨🔗🇺🇸 Peerless 730C Superlite Zombie Green EXTREMELY Lightweight Handcuffs [NIJ]
These are the Peerless 730c in Zombie Green. They look amazing! Lovely bright green. They have all the same features as regular peerless chain link handcuffs but half the weight of average handcuffs.
They only weigh 5.2 oz or 141 grams, which is INSANE! They are so lightweight that they genuinely feel like toys. They have a ceramic finish for the colour, so they already feel less metal-like and if you put them in your pocket to warm them up and then hand them to someone, they would put money on them being a toy handcuff! They'd put them on and be like uh oh.... the're not toys.... are they?! lol. They are NIJ certified, so they have all the same strength and security requirements fulfilled that you'd get from their normal weight models of handcuffs.
They are aluminium or aluminum based handcuffs, which is how they get their very low weight. Officers sometimes like to buy these because they can carry 2 pairs of handcuffs and not add any extra weight to their duty belt. Or just carry the one pair and reduce the weight on their belt.
They are a bit more expensive than their regular models, but if you want a pair of lightweight handcuffs, these are the lowest weight ones I have ever owned. Kyung Chang are probably the next lightest and then Yuil aluminium models after that, but these are all American made Peerless Superlite handcuffs!
The nice colours they make, help you to identify your cuffs vs your colleagues cuffs, or just to have a nice personal style if you use them for non-official purposes..... :D
Because they are so light, when you press them down on the wrist, they do not swing through as far as their more weighty standard relatives, because the bow does not have as much weight. That said, they do have a nice positive rapid lock, but you just will have to click them in farther than you might otherwise, which is nothing new really, because in any case you always need to tighten handcuffs to the proper level of tightness anyway.
