TCH handcuffs are made in the UK to the highest industry standards using best materials available. The TCH850 offers the perfect combination of the power and control you get from a standard rigid handcuff and compact mobility of a more traditional folding or chain handcuff. Once deployed the handcuffs lock firmly in to their rigid position which can only be released using the included standard issue handcuff key.

Best in the TCH range in my opinion. These are the usual exceptional quality you come to expect from TCH. Can be carried either with a special lower profile belt holder in the folded position or carried pre-opened as you would a pair of 840. So this should make them more adaptable for covert and overt operations. The distance between the cuff bracelets is slightly more than the 840, so they are more comfortable for larger people when their hands are behind their back palms facing out. But the larger distance could mean a rear-stack could be more uncomfortable or painful. Front stack is fine. Very impressed. I bet cost is the only reason these are not standard issue for police.
