This new model is built to the normal high standards associated with Alcyon and meets NIJ standards. Notice the 'Smith and Wesson' type slot for double locking which is a new feature of Alcyon handcuffs. Two keys with the normal pin to enable double locking are provided.
This relatively new model has all the qualities of the best selling 5050 but with the added advantage of the double locking which is achieved by inserting the pin which sticks out from the handle of the key into the side of the handcuffs rather than the fumbling around trying to find a very small hole on the side. The nickel plating is particularly good on this model.
Another unique Alcyon design - no one else has come up with such a good idea, let's face it, chain is almost medieval by comparison. This universal joint is a brilliantly simple answer but extremely strong, a real World beater. The recently developed double locking mechanism makes these handcuffs as near to perfect you can get, especially for just over twenty quid!
We have enthused about this brilliant universal joint linkage between the two 'cuffs, unique to Alcyon ever since we started to deal with the Company back in 2003. These are perfect handcuffs for the law enforcement agent who likes a non shiny no nonsense finish to his/her handcuffs. Coupled with the newly developed 'Smith and Wesson' type double locking these handcuffs are 'the business'!
These beautifully nickel plated hinged handcuffs with the new 'Smith and Wesson' type double locking are arguably the best low priced hinged handcuffs on the market. These are yet another confirmation that Alcyon handcuffs are really good value European handcuffs.
The hinge on these handcuffs resembles interlocking fingers, four on one side, three on the other. They are very strong and give a higher degree of control than the ordinary chain linked handcuffs. Brought out around 2005, they differ from the earlier Alcyon hinged model as the locking device is the Smith and Wesson type as opposed to the small pin operation. The black oxide finish cuts down light reflection, helpful in covert situations.
