How to clean the shackles
Police officers and guards always carry a pair of shackles tucked into their shackle covers. Sometimes these shackles need cleaning. There are many ways to clean shackles, whether they are hinge shackles, rigid shackles or handle shackles. They all have something in common, that is the metal. You can buy a metal cleaner at a hardware store, or nickel will do as well to clean your shackles. Do not forget to put oil in the lock area of the shackles so that they work well and never get stuck.
What are shackles?
Shackles are accessories that complement the uniform of the security forces. Police shackles are used by security forces and security guards to have control over the detainee, thus preventing the detainee from attacking them and restricting their freedom of movement.
How to use the shackles
The procedure to put the shackles is as follows:
- The detainee must be standing with his/her hands on the wall. Legs must be separated and open, achieving a certain imbalance in the body of the detainee.
- The detainee will be asked in a clear and concise way to place his/her right hand on the back with palms facing out. This is when we place the part of the shackle.
- The detainee will then be asked to support his/her weight against the wall and at the same time lower his/her left hand towards the back and with the palm of the hand facing outwards. When the arm is lowered, we will place the second shackle and we will be able to handle the detainee more easily.
- We must check that the shackle locks are properly closed.
