: The Hiatt superintendent darbies with their inner diameter of 6.5cm X 5.5cm are too large.
: Her WRIST circumference is 17 cm and we found that an inner diameter of about 5.5 cm X 4.5cm should be perfect.
: BTW: Do you know what inner diameter the original non-adjustable Hiatt Lady darbies had and if they are still produced?
From information of old photographic and written prison achives and converted into new meric units.
The inner circumference of a Hiatt 104 Lady Darby is 175mm, minimum opening is 50*60mm and has a weight of 414 grams, overall length 225 mm and made of steel.
For reference purposes, the inner circumference of a Hiatt 115 type Lady version is 162 to 185 mm, minimum opening is 50*55mm and has a weight of 348 grams, overall length is 220mm and is made of steel.
Hiatt 104 Escort cuffs are a hybrid of the lady's and standard cuffs.
These type of items should be available from police stations and prisons, servicing female prisoners, try reclaim, clearance and auction houses around the Holloway area of London, (Famous British Womens Prison) or those of your respective commonweath countries.
Hope this is of some help,
