back to start page

Here i present my collection of handcuffs, legcuffs and other restraints. This collection is for people collecting, making somthing by themselves, restoring old cuffs or who are interested on escapology.

Items shown here are not for sale, i am a collector, not a dealer!

Colletion is divided into several groups:

Some terms are decribed here:
