My pack of TIHK handcuff keys just arrived, I have yet to try them out on cuffs but my first impressions are that this is a beautifully executed concept.
Obviously living in the first world, and in an area with a very low crime rate (Compared to some parts of Europe I have lived in) the likelihood of
unlawful detention is very slim. However it is still a possibility, and if SHTF a TIHK could prove a lifesaving tool.
Above: The TIHK compared to a Shomer-Tec ‘covert handcuff key’ -
Like the Covert key (my previous EDC key) the TIHK is non metallic, non reflective and made from a strong polymer plastic.
Unlike the Shomer-Tec key it can be concealed and deployed with greater ease thanks to the innovative integrated clip.
Below: an example of the TIHK clipped to a belt loop for simple deployment if hands are cuffed behind your back. Placing several keys on your person increases accessibility if unlawfully cuffed in various positions.
