Cuffs 101

This set of cuffs is inexpensive and will last you a few years or more. They have a safety latch for escape and come with two sets of keys. They are easy to use and will fit most people.

extremely useful review

Use

My last set of very similar cuffs lasted about 4 years. I needed a new set after the last one's hinges got weak and started to pinch the skin around the wrists. These are sold by a different company, but look almost identical to my old pair, so I imagine they will last just as long. I don't even use handcuffs that much, maybe once a month if that. So, these are not for the heavy user or for a couple or person who wants something hardcore or more realistic. They are, however, great for beginners or those who need an escape safety net.

Design / Craftsmanship / Material / Size / Fit

The package for these cuffs doesn't say what type of metal they are, but they feel and weigh similar to my last pair, which were nickle plated. Some people are allergic to nickle so keep this in mind. Nickle is not the strongest metal and can rust. Chrome plating is much better if you want a longer lasting pair.

These cuffs can function like real cuffs with a key. But they do also have a safety type mechanism that does not require keys to open. There is a small latch that will open the cuffs. There is also a "stop" option. Pushing a small latch to the STOP written on the cuffs will lock them and make it so they cannot be opened with the latch. Having it not in the position allows them to be opened with the safety latch. Two sets of keys are provided, but even if you lose them the cuffs can still be used.

In terms of size these will fit the average female and male. On larger wrists there may be more discomfort; but for some the slight pain is what they want. I didn't find these painful unless I wanted them to be. They are easy to put on and take off. When cuffing them a clicking is heard when tightening.
    • Adjustable
    • Will fit most people

Performance

These cuffs are strong enough to withstand some tough play. They don't seem like they would bend or break with force. Keep in mind that they can be removed by the person wearing them without to much difficulty. This makes them great for solo bondage play. They met my expectations and needs as a simple cuff set. They are way to small for ankle cuffing so if you want to use them for that, these are not a good choice. The middle chain that connects the two cuffs allows for them to be cuffed around items like table legs etc. They are fairly flexible for movement.
    • Easy to put on / use
    • Holds up to use well

Care and Maintenance

To clean these if they get messy, just use water and soap. Be sure to dry them well though to reduce the possibility of rusting. I washed my past pair this way and didn't have any problems. I only had to wash them a few times though. To gain some shine, use chrome cleaner.

The cuffs do make noise so if you are traveling with them, you may want to put them in the package or a pouch.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store

Packaging

The packaging is minimal. They come in a small cardboard box. It can be kind of hard to fold the cuffs right to fit them back in so the box closes.
    • Minimal
    • Recyclable
Follow-up commentary
These are showing the same wear that the other pair did although not as bad. The joints do wear and get weaker with time and there really is nothing that can be done to prevent this. I don't use handcuffs enough to want a more expensive pair, although I am getting away from handcuffs more and into fabric cuffs. These will probably last a few years at the rate that I use...will be using them.

    Wonderful review.

    The Grease monkey in me would like to recommend some lube/oil on the hinges and lock mechanism after washing. This will help to keep them tight and working good. When metal (any kind) rubs metal it will get loose.

    Good review. I like the idea of the escape function, in case I freak out, which I have never done, but am always thinking it could happen! He'd let me out in a second but the escape is Just for insurance, I guess.
