OfficerStore.com, the leading gear source for law enforcement professionals, has joined forces with Combined Tactical Systems to deliver unique restraint systems to armed forces, law enforcement, corrections, and homeland security agencies. CTS-Thompson handcuffs, leg cuffs, waist chains, and Blue Boxes allow your agency to create the restraint system ideally suited for your specific line of work.
COATESVILLE, Pa. - OfficerStore.com understands the need for a restraint system that prevents escape and limits potential violent behavior during arrest and transport. CTS-Thompson offers a range of restraint products designed to create the ideal system for your application and environment.
Systems are based on the situation, the individual’s size, and the threat level. They offer traditional chain and hinged cuffs in standard, oversize, and extra-oversize diameters as well as the innovative pick- and bump-resistant Tri-Max® design. All CTS-Thompson restraints are made in the U.S.A. and include a lifetime limited warranty.
Tri-Max® is CTS-Thompson's newest innovation and features bump and pick resistant technology that will to enhance officer safety during arrest and in-custody transport situations. Tri-Max Technology is available in Standard Size Chain Handcuffs, Oversize, and Extra Oversize Chain Handcuffs, Oversize Hinge Handcuffs as well as Standard Size Chain Leg Cuffs.
The Tri-Max® patented technology consists of a dual ratchet engaging independent retaining bars separated by a barrier called Pick-Shield-XLS®. Tri-Max® cuffs are designed with a split-shackle construction that increases the strength of the handcuffs by directing the gap between the dual shackles to pass through a rigid monorail retaining bar. Gaining vertical and lateral strength, the internal bar also inhibits a shim from entering the nose or rear of the shackle. Independently floating retaining bars on each side of the shackle are engaged by a double five-tooth pawl. While popping the double lock may be possible, a pick has no straight line of sight to go through the handcuff to engage the rear retaining bars and depress them. Picks also don't stand a chance through the keyway.
Stamped from 1050 carbon steel, the parts are hardened from R885 to RC40 prior to assembly. This makes the Tri-Max exceptionally strong and allows maximum flexibility to avoid cracking under stress. That's why it's called TRI-MAX Security.
All Standard, Oversize, and Extra Oversize Chain Handcuffs feature Positive Clickbak loading, oversized swivel, and reinforced steel rivets for added strength, 23 locking positions and 3 independent retaining bars floating on tempered leaf spring. The Oversized Chain Handcuffs are specifically designed for larger wrists with a 6.25" minimum and 9" maximum inside perimeter. The Extra Oversize Chain Handcuffs are built for extra-large wrists and boast of an inside perimeter of 8" minimum and 10 3/4" maximum.
All standard chain-style handcuffs are made from nickel-plated stainless steel. With True Swing Technology, the shackle will always swing straight into the body plates to lock itself into the drop bars. The Positive Clickbak loading system provides fast back-loading and application, while raised rivets increase strength. At just over 9 oz., the Standard Chain Handcuffs are lightweight cuffs and a strong solution to providing the best fit.
Oversize Hinge Handcuffs have an inside perimeter of 6.25" minimum with a 9" maximum. Its larger size gives officers more flexibility and a stronger fit. They are reinforced by a solid-wishbone design. The Oversize Hinge Handcuffs also feature a triple-hinge made from nickel-plated stainless steel. Each connecting hinge is individually pinned into the handcuff body plates, creating the strongest hinge handcuff design.
CTS Thompson also offers both Oversize and Extra Oversize Chain Leg Cuffs. Oversize Chain Leg Cuffs have an inside perimeter of 8" minimum and 10 3/4" maximum while the Extra Oversize model has an inside perimeter of 11 1/4" minimum with a 15 1/8" maximum. These leg cuffs are designed for increased officer safety and for an over-the-boot fit.
They feature True Swing Technology for fast and accurate alignment of the shackle and retention bars. Multiple drop bars and a deep rail add grip while side double locks keep dirt and grime out of the cuff mechanism. Reinforced steel swivels, oversized spin rivets and heavy-duty construction make these leg cuffs stronger and flexible under stress. A 15-inch chain makes these leg cuffs one of the safest designs available. 23 locking positions for accurate fit and two keys included.
