I crave thee.

These super comfortable restraints, are great for those who maybe starting their BDSM journey or seasoned vets. With an adjustable size from 4"-7.5" inches they are bound to fit just about everyone.
More then aesthetically pleasing, they are comfortable too, even at the tightest setting. With a whole line of Crave products by Spartacus you will be kinky and looking good in no time.

The cuff has eight(8) buckling holes that are spaced about 3/8” apart, which allows an adjustment space of about,4” to 7 1/2″.

When buckled on the first hole, the edges of the cuff barely touch leaving a slight space, with an interior diameter of 3".

When set on the last hole, the band overlaps and interior diameter is only 1".
tight

The Strap weaves though the cuff twice under the wider leather of the cuff, then is attached by two grommets and glued in place.

Between the first weave towards the buckle end is a 1” black D-ring, which has a large enough space to connect anything under 1" diameter.

Possible connector's could be:
-Rope, such as Japanese Bondage Rope
-Straps, such as Super Strap Love Ties or Twisted Love Ties
-A 4 way hog tie, such as Leather Hog Tie
-In place of the Liberator Black Label cuffs.
-For use with kink furniture.
- A Simple carabiner (or snap hook), double connector, Keyed locks, 4 or 3 way hog tie, chains, anything you can imagine that is *safe* to use.

Cleaning is simple. SPOT CLEAN, with soapy water via saddle soap or other leather friendly soaps and hang to dry or lay them out flat. You can recondition with something like Pecard Leather Dressing. Using a leather dressing will keep the leather supple and flexible. DO NOT wash these in your washer and dryer. You will ruin them.

For your consideration: My wrist. My wrist is 6" around in circumference. When I am wearing the restraints, I have the strap adjusted to the 5th hole from the start of the strap (NOT the tip), and this is loose. I could easily fit into the 4th, with 2 fingers being able to slip though. If I wanted them SUPER tight I could fit into the 3rd, though I need assistance to do this, since I can't pull it to the 3rd on my own.
Thus meaning, all ya'll can most likely fit into these violet straps, with no problem.

When in use the hardware makes zero noise. Everyonce in a while you will get the 'ching' sound from the hardware slapping against itself when they are off. That is not an issue at all with the Crave Wrist Restraints once they are on. They are virtually silent.
They are also very comfortable to use, even on the tightest setting they don't cut into skin. The fur is super soft and feels nice rubbing against the skin. Since they are fur lined you won't get nylon/rope rash from them moving about on your wrist. The fur also tends to wick the wrist sweat you may (or may not) have.

It is virtually impossible to slip out of them when they are tightened correctly. Even when I have them adjusted to the 5th hole, where it is loose, I cannot slip out, contorting my hands is really of no use, because they are on for good. They will twist a bit if you are moving your hands, but for the most part, depending on the placement of your arms, they stay in place without twisting all the way around. Once connected to each other they stay in place pretty well.

Pulling, Yanking, etc does nothing to the light weight, but heavy build of these restraints. They are made to last considering they are bound by metal, glued, stitched and threaded though itself. The light black metal hardware will not dig, bend or contort itself when played rough with.
I doubt these have been tested for suspension, but assume since they are being marketed as simple wrist restraints it would not be a good idea to be hung by them. Albeit they could probably handle it. Please for your safety, do not try to push it to the limit.

Packaging:
Basic clam shell, no instructions/paperwork.
