CTS Thompson Handcuffs Model 1008 Tri-Max Security Handcuffs

(7 reviews) | Write a Review

CTS Thompson Handcuffs & Restraints Tri-Max chain style handcuffs are exceptionally pick and shim resistant.

Due to the split shackle construction, the strength of the handcuff is increased because the gap between the dual shackles rides through a rigid "monorail" retaining bar. A double five-tooth pawl engages the independently floating retaining bars on each side of each shackle.

The "monorail" system is the reason we call the product TRI-MAX. The internal bar not only strengthens the hold vertically and laterally, but inhibits a shim from entering the nose or the rear of the shackle. It also defeats a pick if it is engaged through the keyway. While it may be possible to pop the double lock, a pick cannot go completely through the handcuff to engage the rear retaining bars and depress them.

Tri-Max maintains the integrity of

1. Nose of shackle

2. Rear of shackle.

3. Key hole.

That's why we call it TRI-MAX Security!

Uses standard handcuff keys, 2 included.


  • Best pair of standard cuffs on the market

    Hands-down the best pair of standard handcuffs on the market. Smith & Wesson, peerless, ASP, Hiatt and CTS are all well-made cuffs. As far as strength goes they are all pretty much the same, if there is any difference in strength its not enough that it really matters. CTS Tri Max are the best because they are very pick and shim resistant. Hiatt are pick resistant but they are not shim resistant. Of course high security cuffs could very well be more secure but they dont take a standard key. Which again makes CTS Tri Max the best pair of standard handcuffs out there.

  • Excellent handcuffs

    These are very good cuffs smooth double locking, cuffing and excellent quality materials ! Better than SW cuffs IMO. Just had some minor burrs left over from machining the teeth. Highly recommended !
