Double-Lock Improves Officer Safety by making it virtually impossible to shim or break using blunt force techniques commonly used with nylon Zip Tie type restraints. The unique wedge shaped design of the Locking Clip also prevents accidental over-tightening of the cuffs during prisoner transport or a struggle. In addition; Cobra Cuffs reduces officer liability and is safer for the prisoner. The tactical advantage in fully assembled Cobra Cuffs can be found in no other disposable restraint.
Patented Cobra Cuffs are made with Cross-Linked Rubber and come in 5 Colors: Black, Tan, Green & White and Glow White.
Why Rubber? Rubber helps prevent the stress cracking common with nylon zip ties when exposed to cold, heat or creasing. Superior shelf life is an added benefit with Cobra Cuffs (3-5 yrs, depending upon storage conditions) The Super Tough Rubber Based Polymer used in Cobra Cuffs absorbs the shock and stress during a struggle -making the 250-300 lb Tensile Strength more than sufficient to contain the most violent prisoners. Independent tensile testing for Cobra Cuffs is conducted with locked strap loops. Many zip tie manufacturers only report tensile strength of the strap alone, which does not include the locking mechanism or ratchet, typically the weak link.
