Handcuffs - Too expensive?

I swear you can get handcuffs at a dollar store or toy store for super cheap. What's the difference between those and the expensive ones at sex toy shops?

The quality and purpose. The dollar store incarnations are disposable and meant for limited use but usually more for decoration, i.e. dress up Halloween type of stuff. Sex toy shops, depending on the brand, are the exact opposite. These are meant to be used to restrain for longer periods of time.

The Adult versions also account for comfort. As you have probably noticed, they come in a variety of colors, materials and designs and can be padded and or not padded. Some fasting methods for cuffs can include but are not limited to lock and key, Velcro, tying or other methods of fastening. Depending on your style of play this might be of issue to you.

I hope I was able to answer your question.

I agree with Inquisitor. The reason for a price difference is "quality and purpose". DreezzyyBabyy, if you are interested in the "real deal" such as what actual police use, then I'd recommend Smith & Wesson Model 100 Handcuffs. Do a google search and you will find them for around $20 I would however purchase a few extra keys. Oh and btw just in case you didn't know... the keys for normal standard handcuffs are pretty much universal, as in my key would fit your cuffs.

From the google search that I did, I found an online handcuff retailer who offers "Zak Tool #60 Tactical Training Handcuffs". These are more money at $35 however do not need a key at all. Instead "Sturdy dials replace keys for faster training" of law enforcement officers.

Leather restraints are often safer than metal cuffs, but it depends on the type of play you're engaging in. I'd spend a little extra and get a better pair with good reviews. Personally, I'd also opt for leather.

if you don't plan to move much the dollar store ones would work other than that its the quality cause the ones sold in adult stores can handle more pressure pulled against them

I can agree with what everyone else has said on here. The ones at the dollar store cuffs will not last with use. Whether it's rope or cuffs, you really want to invest in something decent. When it comes to wrists or ankles being bound you want to be comfortable.The most comfortable set that I have are lamb and leather. I spent about 60 bucks on them.

I got a work story and a half about handcuffs:

I will never use cheap or ornamental cuffs ever again as they are usually made from plastic, aluminum or pressed sheet metal.

Police issue cuffs are usually made from carbon steel while metal sex toy cuffs are normally are crafted from stainless steel.

One day while a work an ambo pulled up with a woman who had lacerated her wrist and and a man with deep friction burns on his.

They had bought some cheap cuffs off eBay for their kid and had been linked together in a game of cops and robbers, but when they tried to take it off it remained latched.

They had struggled to get the cuff off only they made it worse and metal had tightened more around his wrist and hers. So in desperation they pulled harder and the cuff on the woman snapped and slashed her wrist deeply.

Ambo's were called, and bolt cutters took the cuff off his wrist before it cut off too much blood flow while she was rushed to hospital with a hefty venous bleed. If it had been arterial she would have been dead in minutes.

No cheap cuffs for me.
