Handcuffed people[edit]


Some prisoners being transported from custody to outside locations, for appearances at court, to medical facilities, etc., will wear handcuffs augmented with a waist belt or chains.

Handcuff covers[edit]

A handcuff cover is a piece of plastic or metal that can be placed around a pair of handcuffs to convert a pair of standard handcuffs into rigid handcuffs and to cover the keyholes of the handcuffs for further security.
