    I have played around with shims and opened them. Twisted and broke chains. And also picked the key way. Zip ties are simple. Duct tape is another story! I feel itís a good skill to have especially if one travels abroad. Lots of human trafficking happening globally and a lot in the US.

    Never had cuffs on, so never tried. So far, so good at seventy-three.

    Iíve been handcuffed several times by the law and got out of them every time!

    Ok, it was in the 1970s & 80ís, involved drinking (heavily) and driving back before folks got all upset about it - thatís all of the story your gettíin cept my lawyer called my driving record ďcolorfulĒ 😊

    ..anyway, yeah I can take them right off. I have Ehlers-Danlos and can make my hands smaller than my wrist. Kinda like it would be trying to cuff stretch armstrong folks with that are like Gumby.

    More ppl have it than prolly know, was said Houdini had it. I canít pop my shoulders out but my brother could.

    Trust God.

    What would happen if you put the same amount of trust in God that you do in the brakes on what your driving on the highways?

    Think about it.

    When I was in uniform I carried always carried a spare hidden handcuff key inside my belt keepers. The made in England Hiatts hinge cuffs, were some of the most heavy-duty available back in the day. Once you got one handcuff of the hinged cuffs on a suspect you could slip the side-handle of your PR-24 in the vacant cuff you had an incredible amount of leverage to gain compliance!

    Nephew was a SEAL trainer in San Diego for several years. His part of the training was for the last E [ escape ]. He had dozens of pairs of both hinged and chain cuffs and could get out of all of them in seconds. He had a very thin piece of wire he uses,

    He showed me he could break the chains very simply as was described by the OP. He preferred that little piece of wire. Jammed into the teeth, they separated enough for it to swing open.

    My dad the cop had some wicked device, not sure I would call it a handcuff. It was 2 T bars one was concave the other convex with a length of chain between them.
    You would slap it around the wrist and tighten by twisting it.
    I made the mistake of telling him that I did not think they would restrain anyone and with my free hand I could attack him.
    He tried them out on me. Slapped it on my wrist with lightning speed (guess he had a lot of practice) and told me to take a swing at him.
    I don't think I got my fist even half way up before I was on my knees screaming in pain. He had total control over me with just a twist of his wrist.
    Wicked stuff.
