BOA Handcuff Co. has added the ASSA Desmo Restricted Keyway to the CUFF-MAXX product line. With this new keyway, BOA has expanded its keying options and types that it can offer. Unlike other brands of lock cylinders the ASSA Desmo key offers nearly zero resistance when inserting and removing the key. This feature permits officers to spend less time focusing on the cuffs and more time attending to the prisoner. If an inmate were to suddenly struggle while having their cuffs removed, the keys would literally fall out of the cuffs; leaving the inmate in the cuffed position. The ASSA Desmo lock and key will be available on all BOA products.
