The Tiny Inconspicuous Handcuff Key

Our friends at Vigilant Gear emailed me a few days ago to let me know that they started carrying the Tiny Inconspicuous Handcuff Key (TIHK). If you’ve never heard of the TIHK before, it started out as a crowd funded project, and recently TIHK completed their first production run.

TIHK Description/Specifications

TIHK is a patent pending handcuff key that utilizes an integrated clip for easy attachment to your clothing so it is ready when needed.  Its minimal, low-profile design and low-visibility coating ensure that it can be carried inconspicuously and go undetected when detained. Designed to fit all standard “peerless” single and double-lock handcuffs.

  • Made in USA
  • Reinforced Polymer Material
  • Low-visibility matte finish
  • Weight – 0.2g
  • Overall Size – 0.75 x 0.16 x 0.3
  • Color – Black

At the time of writing, the TIHK is available for purchase from Vigilant Gear for $6. VG carries some pretty awesome gear, so be careful browsing around their site, you might find a bunch of other stuff you can’t live without.

    Its absolut junk I ordered the 5 pack of keys from TIHK and have already broken two of them trying to unlock a set of standard issue handcuffs. They will only unlock the handcuff if it is not double locked but its mandatory for officers to always doubble lock the hand cuffs. The small plastic nub just simply is not strong enough to unlock them
