LIMITING LIABILITY AND IMPROVING SUBJECT SAFETY WITH DOUBLE LOCKING CUFFS
Law Enforcement implications of a keyless handcuff application process
As modern law enforcement professionals respond to public outcry for more protection, there is renewed development in restraint technology that promotes control and limits risk of injury.
Double locking handcuffs are commonplace in modern law enforcement, but notable advancements are still being made to improve operator effectiveness and detainee safety. These ‘small’ advancements yield meaningful results in improving public and Police user safety. Today we’re going to take a look at why this new technology matters.
ASP Ultra Plus Cuffs (pictured above) is an example of new double locking handcuffs being adopted by modern law enforcement.
“Police users no longer have to use one hand to extract a cuff key from their duty belt, which takes valuable time and reduces physical control over the subject.”
Police User Safety
What you need to know about push button cuffs (Keyless Double Locking)

- The complete absence of a key from the environment makes the restraint process safer.
