One: Darby Handcuff Escape Toggle.
Especially imported from SHOMER-TEC USA by 21st CENTURY SURVIVAL the UK’s leading supplier of covert handcuff keys and only distributor of the Darby handcuff escape toggle here in the UK . Originally developed by the British MOD the Darby handcuff restraint escape toggle is intended as a HIPS “hidden in plane site” EDC “every day carry” item and designed to look like a common clothing or travel luggage zipper toggle. Ideal for any Aid Workers, Civilians or VIPs working in or travailing through high risk environments. Prior to the standardisation and mass production of modern handcuffs the original Dardy type handcuffs were manufactured by Hiatt & Co of Birmingham for the British Police force. Hiatt also exported these cuffs in large numbers throughout the former British Empire. Now Manufactured by KUB Industries LTD of Pakistan and currently in service with the Pakistan police force. Darby handcuffs can still be widely encountered throughout the Middle East, Africa and parts of Europe. For this reason alone the Darby Handcuff Escape Toggle has been especially selected for this package.

X 2 Concealed Buckle Handcuff Key.
These small keys are concealed within a buckle, supplies as a pair and intended to be discreetly attached to trousers or shorts cargo pockets, Safari shirt sleeve / pocket, bracelet or bag, and will go completely un-noticed in most cases. Alternatively remove the key from the buckle and tape the key to the inside of your belt. We have tested the key and successfully opened a pair of rigid TCH UK Issue handcuffs 4 times before breaking, it only needs to be useful once.
Note: When bound behind your back with metal handcuffs and without practice the probability of escaping single or double locked handcuffs might be 50 50, without a key, that’s probably a zero % chance. For what its worth, my advice to anyone at risk, traveling through or working in a high risk environments and looking at getting a covert carry handcuff key would be (get a set of police issue handcuffs and practice).
