Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Does your company provide a training video for the Police Hobbles?

A: Currently we have a step-by-step video for the  MAX hobble on our YouTube Channel.  This video was once only available after purchase.  It is now available for viewing on the YouTube channel.


Q: How is your Police Hobble Strap better than others on the market?  

A: The Police Hobble “Strap” is unique from other hobbles currently on the market.  Our Strap design utilizes an aluminum locking carabiner instead of a “keychain” latch.  This allows the officer to attach the carabiner to hinged or chained handcuffs. The locking carabiner prevents the restrained subject from removing the hobble from what it is latched to.  It is near impossible for the handcuffed subject to manipulate the locking wheel of the carabiner when tightened at finger strength.

Also, the Police Hobble “Strap” comes with a 1 1/2 inch steel ring which is attached to the looped end.  This allows to Strap to be utilized in the maximum restraint position by looping around the handcuffs and back to the ring.

Our Strap comes with a 3-year free repair/replacement guarantee.
