    Off duty handcuff case

    For those of you who carry handcuffs off duty what do you use? I bought a Bianchi Model 45 combo magazine/handcuff holder that was marketed as concealable but it certainly isn't on my body. It's a paddle design and it just sits too far away from my body and prints badly with a shirt over it. It's a nice holder, adjustable for height and cant, just not concealable.

    So I'm to find something that will sit close to the body, it doesn't have to be a combo holder but that would be a plus, but it looks like a single bikini holder with a separate mag pouch might be the only option. I also don't want a belt through design, I'd prefer snap or even another paddle for ease of on/off.

    Suggestions?

    Just take a couple of Flex-Cuffs and slide them behind your belt and belt loops. Light, out of the way and there if you need them.

    That's a pretty ingenious idea!

    Don't they rattle? Or are you putting one half inside your pants?

    I carried mine with one inside and one outside, but at 7:30, like I would on duty. I'm not a big fan of anything in the small of the back.
    The preceding post may contain sarcasm; it's just better that way. However, it is still intended with construction and with the Love of my L-rd Y'shua.

    Half in, half out is more comfortable than I thought it would be. Probably should of tried that first.

    I use thumbcuffs off duty, they are small flat and just stick them in my off side pants pocket . Also off-duty I have a set of handcuff in a small "go-bag" in the truck. On duty I carry two sets of handcuffs on my belt, and one back-up set in the car. I use the thumbcuffs as a back-up to the others on duty, or extra security on a cuffed suspect to transport. And yes one time I had to use all four sets at once. I also have a cheap flat kydex paddle type carrier that I rarely use.

    I'd never carry cuffs off duty, but I do carry them plain clothes a lot. I do as Guantes described. K.I.S.S.

    On a gunbelt in a case, I carry them chain down, single bar forward. In plain clothes, they go chain up, naturally, single bar rearward.

    I never carried thumb cuffs, although I knew some who did. I carried two sets on my belt and a 2/4 man chain in addition to a bag of flex cuffs in the car.

    I carry mine on my kidney aboutr 5:00. Tucked in the waistband. Lots of times I get tired and stick it in my console in my vehicle.

    In winter, I put them in my strongside coat pocket for weight to sweep my cover garment.

    I hadn't planned on it but it was suggested by members of our dept that we do. Some guys do, some guys don't. Depending where I'm going I may or may not (I will have a few other sets in my car between my bag and belt) but figured I'd want the option to carry, unfortunately I over thought things.
