We've put an Escape from Handcuffs kit together to help guide you through the process.
It's easier than you might think to open a pair of handcuffs with a shim or a paperclip; all it takes is a bit of practice and a simple understanding of how a handcuff works.
The highlight of the kit is a clear cuff that allows you to see how all of the mechanisms work, giving you a much better understanding of how to bypass the handcuffs.
In a classic episode of Scam School, escape master Dan Martin taught us how to successfully shim a pair of handcuffs using the clear cuff:
It's only $20 by itself, but we're including it free with every Escape from Handcuffs kit. If you remember we showed this off on Scam School a while back:
So the full kit includes the clear cuff, a standard pair of handcuffs, the Lace Escape Tool (my absolute favorite covert handcuff key), a bunch of paperclips, and the same micro escape tool that we use in the Rogue's Ring.
All of that separately would run you about $70, but we have the full kit available for just $59.99, which includes:
- Clear cuff training handcuff tool
- Standard pair of handcuffs
- Lace Escape Tool (the best covert handcuff key)
- Micro-escape shim (the same shim used for the Rogue's Ring!)
- Paperclips for handcuff picking
