Armament Systmes and Procedures (ASP) unveiled the new Ultra Cuff, the first forged rigid frame restraint.
The Ultra Cuff incorporates all of the innovative advances in handcuff design that ASP pioneered, including an interchangeable lockset, conical bows and double sided keyways.
Added to the revolutionary design elements is a frame forged from 7075 T6 ordnance grade aluminum and permanently joined 4140 heat-treated spiral locking pins.
The steel model of the Ultra cuff weighs only 9 ounces while the aluminum is just 7 ounces. Both are full-featured restraints that were specifically designed to "Lighten the Load" of an officer or agent.
"The Ultra Cuff was designed in the field with input coming from officers in over 100 countries," said ASP Vice President of Sales & Marketing Scott Bechthold. "As a result, the design incorporates the practical features most requested by cops."
The Ultra Cuff's flat hight radiused contact bow improves application and helps prevent injury. The frame geometry, deep set teeth and precision smooth action eliminates the need for back loading.
Like all ASP handcuffs, the Ultra Cuff has a replaceable lock set with high visibility double lock indicators. Both the double and single locks are released in a single motion by turning the key in the direction of the bow.
The MSRP for the steel Ultra Cuff is $50 while the MSRP for the aluminum model $55.
