In Reply to: Question for Ian and the other Locksmiths out there: When can a handcuff be repaired? posted by J. Lauher on December 04, 2000 at 08:46:08:
I have a pair of Tower's Double Lock Handcuffs (Union model) in really great condition (just look at the picture), except one thing: the double lock on one side seems not to work. On the other cuff I could turn the key (which is not an original key) 360 degrees clockwise to activate the double lock and 360 degrees counter-clockwise to inactivate it. Another turn of approximately 200 degrees counter-clockwise (until the key stops) unlocks the cuff. But on the other cuff I could turn the key counter-clockwise as often as I like without stop - I must explicitly hold it at 200 degrees if I want to open the cuff. And when I turn the key clockwise there seems to be a kind of barrier at 45 degrees - no double lock could be activated. Does anybody have a idea what could be wrong and how I could repair it?
