The Safariland model 8122 Standard Hinged Handcuffs are certified under the NIJ standard 0307.01 and offers unique security features that provide an extra measure of confidence, such as 3 independent retaining bars with 6 teeth on each making the Handcuffs extremely difficult to pick, while also providing increased strength as the shackles engages. The Safariland handcuffs also offer a back-loading feature for faster cuff application, an open cuff can be snapped back into place with a quick motion of the wrist and then reapplied without having to released the offenders hand. Other features included: a leaf spring instead of a coil spring (like most standard handcuffs) in the double lock mechanism used to foil a suspect's attempt to overcome the handcuff's double lock mechanism, solid links connect the cuffs, domed rivets which are bigger on the outside than the inside making it very difficult to pop out without drilling, and True Swing Technology which ensures the swing arm is balanced and centered so it locks into the center of the shackle every time. Hinged handcuffs offer greater subject control, while further limiting subject mobility beyond that of chain handcuffs.
