Inconspicuous Handcuff Key


This handcuff key, well-designed for concealment, is approximately ¾ inch in length. With a small clip, the key easily attaches to clothing and has low visibility due to its nonreflective matte. It fits handcuffs manufactured by various companies. Law enforcement officers should be aware that offenders may attempt to hide and use this key.

Submitted by Bob Hrodey, retired Chief Investigator from Woodstock, Illinois.
