Hiatt Model UL-5 Ultimate Handcuffs, Black

(5 reviews) | Write a Review

Combining the easy transportation of hinged cuffs with the sheer control of rigid cuffs, the Hiatt Model UL5 Ultimate Handcuffs are truly versatile. When drawn, these cuffs snap rigid and stay that way until unlocked, at which point they fold conveniently for storage on the belt. The finish is a clean and appealing black oxide that matches the rest of the cuff with ease. With the quality and security that has come to be expected from Hiatt cuffs, these are also constructed of the same heavy duty steel as other cuffs with a specialty polymer hinge/bar system that can be opened or locked with the same key used to open the cuffs themselves. Featuring the reliable and renowned 18 tooth, 3 retaining bar system, these cuffs will prove themselves with reliability. The positive swing-through action and built-in backloading allow for faster deployment of these quality restraints. Includes two keys for out of the box, by the book, business.

    Very bulky when folded. The only open cuff case that will fit is the ASP rigid folding cuff case and that’s with soaking the leather in water and forcing the cuffs in until the leather reforms to them. Very bulky if worn directly behind you so I wear mine closer to the hip than near the lower back. Also as bulky as they are, getting in and out of the car will get them to grab the seat and start closing no matter which way I face them. Once unfolded they are strong and work great for control. Another issue I have seen is swapping out these cuffs with another officer. My tactics have always been to place the second set of cuffs on the prisoner before taking off my cuffs. That way the prisoner is always cuffed. The problem I have run into is standard chain cuffs are not as long as these rigid cuffs when unfolded so a quick swap out can only be done by uncuffing the prisoner or having three sets of cuffs to make the swap. One more complaint is rigid cuffs make unlocking them when the key holes are facing downward a little more of a challenge. ASP has been the only cuff manufacturer to solve that problem. I just wish other manufacturers would follow suit and allow you to unlock cuffs from both sides of the cuff making that problem obsolete. The perfect cuff in my opinion would be a folding rigid cuff that was the length of standard chain cuffs, all steel and no plastic on the single and double strands ( ASP cuffs can bend on the plastic double strand on their rigid cuffs. I know this for a fact because during a fight I had once, the plastic double strand became twisted and bent thus making the cuff unworkable and useless afterwards. There was no bending the double strand back into place. ), key hole locks accessible on both sides of the cuff and a lever or a push style double lock like the Smith and Wesson design so you don’t have to hassle with double locking cuffs with the back of a cuff key. Would I buy them again? No, in my opinion the best bet would be to stick to hinged cuffs for now until a better rigid cuff is designed in my opinion. If ASP would get rid of the plastic double strand, I would buy the ASP foldable rigid cuffs again.

  • Great cuff

    I love them and every other cop Ive introduced them to thinks theyre great. Bad guys hate them. Only gripe is finding a cuff case for them this side of the Atlantic. I ended up utilizing a radio pouch for them
