Proper Handcuff Tension(for nice prisoners!)

Hold the cuffs in the "speedcuff" position with the keyhole up. Press one side of the cuff against the wrist bone and take up the slack. Repeat for the other wrist. Double lock the cuffs. This is for cooperative perps. If they're resisting, then tighten them up till his hands look like a NY Yankees baseball mitt! And remember, mace turns an ordinary cop into an instant ninja!
