Armament Systems and Procedures (ASP), one of the most respected names in law enforcement products, is now shipping the innovative new LockWrite Pen. This patented, fully funtional writing instrument is combined with a heat treated, ASP quality, handcuff key.
The LockWrite Pen is the brainchild of Officer Travis Roemmele, a working police officer in Riverdale, NJ and an ASP Handcuff Instructor.
Roemmele's innovative idea combines two commonly used tools of the public safety professional into one safe, convenient means to carry and access a handcuff key.
"ASP products come from the field based on feedback from the men and women on the street," said ASP Chairman and CEO Kevin Parsons, PhD. "The LockWrite Pen is the latest example of our close working relationship with law enforcement professionals."
The handcuff key is ASP's strongest. It's made with heat treated, polished and plated 4140 steel - the same alloy used in ASP's most durable batons.
The unique design of the LockWrite Pen makes it easy to switch between the tactical and practical functions. With just a click, police officers can slide the cartridge to write or retract the ink cartridge to use the handcuff key.
ASP provides two high viscosity, German ink cartridges with every purchase. They are available in black, blue and red.
A lifetime supply of cartridges are supplied through the ASP "Lifetime Ink" program. Public safety professionals can return a used cartridge along with $1 for postage and handling and ASP will send a replacement cartridge at no additional cost.
The body of the LockWrite Pen is black lacquer. It is available with either 18K Gold or Silver accents. An agency may have a name or custom logo engraved for an additional charge of $1.
The MSRP is $30.
