Rare Czech High Security Hinge Handcuffs For Sale!

I have a nice, rare, Czech hinge handcuff for sale if anyone is interested. At the time I purchased this cuff, I was told it was one of only seven that had left Europe. These cuffs were made in the 1960's or 1970's in a Czechoslovakian prison (according to the gentleman I bought them from) and they were actually made by the prisoners they were to be used on! Pretty interesting if you ask me.

These cuffs have an internal gear that locks the movable bows which makes them shim-proof; the key has a "step" cut into it that must activate a lever inside. I don't know the internal layout of these cuffs but it is a bit more complicated than most normal high security handcuffs (S&W model 104, Alcyon 15900, etc.) The inside diameter of the cuffs is pretty large (you could get a normal size persons ankle in them) and the movable bow is really strange too. The bow is made of a cast alloy (not sure what type of alloy) and seems to come to a point and the ditching in the sides just disappears as you get toward the tip. The shape of the "teeth" are really neat as well; they are large squarish V cuts to accommodate the rotating gear inside.

*The cuffs are pictured with two keys but only come with one!!!

Not sure of the value but I paid $250.00 (USD) plus shipping from Europe. Asking $235.00 plus $7.00 shipping (US destinations) $20.00 shipping to Canada (sorry, that is what I have to pay to get them up there). International shipments, please inquire by e-mail. If interested, please e-mail me at mindhunter42@gmail.com. First come, first serve. Not interested in trades. Thanks.

All work and have at least one working key. mindhunter42@gmail.com

That is quite an awesome set of hinges from the former Czechoslovakia!

Perhaps we should institute a prisoner exchange program with these folks.


Cheers!

Quite unusual for guards to be working in the prison workshop other than doing their typical work:)

I thought so too, so don't hold me to that.

I always write down what information was given to me from the seller.
I don't recall who I got these from but it was about 10 years ago
