ASP handcuffs provide a major advance in both the design and construction of wrist restraints. The frame geometry of ASP hand cuffs is the result of extensive computer modeling and simulation analysis. Strength potential in these handcuffs has been maximized through use of an interlocking, unitized frame. The structure of ASP restraints is forged from high strength stainless steel on custom built, high speed, progressive dies. Each restraint is then overmolded with ordinance-grade polymer under 75 tons of pressure. The lock assembly is unitized and replaceable.
Each ASP handcuff model was designed in the field with input from officers and instructors in over 75 nations where ASP currently conducts tactical training. As a result, the ASP design incorporates the practical features most requested by officers on the street. These stainless steel handcuffs weigh less than standard handcuffs. A flat contact conical bow improves application and complex "keyhole up" training procedures are no longer necessary. There is a keyway and double lock slot on each side of each ASP restraint. A double lock warning bar is readily visible. Both double and single locks are released by turning the handcuff keys in a single direction. The frame geometry, deep set teeth and precision smooth action eliminates the need for backloading and lock assemblies are readily replaced. ASP also offers an array of handcuff accessories to augment the capabilities of their stainless steel restraints, including ASP handcuff pouches for portability. For a precisely engineered, high-strength pair of handcuffs, make it a pair of ASP cuffs.
