How It All Began
The inventor who is a disabled Iraqi War Veteran, was working as a new hire for the Federal Bureau of Prisons in Terre Haute IN. While escorting an inmate one day; after insuring the handcuffs were secured and double locked per policy instruction. The inmate asked if he could show the rookie officer a magic trick, and then proceeded to raise both his hands in the air revealing the handcuffs completely unlocked and off his wrist. Though the inmate received consequences for his actions, this sparked in the rookie officers mind a need for more secure handcuffs. When the rookie officer asked the inmate how he freed himself, he responded with “most of us in here can do this, we just don’t want to lose our commissary privileges, as long as we have use of our hands there’s not much we can’t do”! So the rookie officer knew the fix was with the hands, not with just a handcuff cosmetic solution. This was the creation of the Secure Fit Restraint Mitt.

What do we offer?
The primary purpose of the Secure Fit Restraint Mitt is to be used and work in conjunction with the handcuffs, as well as other wrist restraint devices. The Secure Fit Restraint Mitt prevent tampering and escape from all wrist restraint devices such as the Handcuffs, Wrist Straps, in example; the kind used in psychiatric hospitals, and Zip Ties. It offers maximum protection against the picking of locks, or the undoing or self-releasing of bondage straps or zip ties. Due to its versatility the (SFRM) also has many other benefits as well, such as preventing people who are in bondage from hurting themselves, in example; from scratching or cutting. It also prevents detainees from intercepting contraband, and using their hands to harm officers or other personnel while in transport.
We also are currently in development/prototyping and testing of a new Leg Restraint System which prevents detainees from running, while not stopping normal movement. The system is controlled through a remote control device.
