KM 2500 - Hinged handcuffs

Hinged handcuffs is a combination of best features of handcuffs and rigid cuffs without the additional keys and latches for locking the hinges. Hinged cuffs has a one-side hinge, so they can be hidden in typical holster and can be folded like chain cuffs KM 1001. They open to 180ᵒ, what makes limited moves, so the offcier can safely catch the middle of cuffs and lead without touching. Keyholes are always on the side of detainee and his hands are on the side without keyholes.

Our handcuffs has following charasteristics:

  • They enable easy, fast and efficient cuffing.
  • It is not possible for the cuffed person to release the cuffs by the strenght of muscles or simple objects one can find around.
  • They are made of two identical steel shackles connected with stainless steel hinges
  • The construction consists of steel shackles with backstop clamp mechanizm and swinging single strand.
  • Blocking mechanizm is in both cases, which allows to block the ratchet in every position not pressing the cuffed person too much and additionaly locking the cuffs – double lock tip on the key locks the cuffs and turnig the key in the keypost releases the cuffs.
  •  Its construction, when used properly, does not cause abrasion or injury.


  •    Handcuffs are made of stainless steel that is not toxic to human organism, there are no galvanic layers on the strands.
  • Weight: 450g.

Resistance characteristics:

  • Handcuffs are resistant to static tearing force measuring up to 2300N (force applied to the one clamp, the other clamp fixed). After the test handcuffs remain usable.
  • Handcuffs are resistant to static bending force measuring 500N (clamp fixed on the swivel side, force applied vertically to the surface of the clamp on the other extremity). The force is not causing permanent deformation.
