Magnalight Introduces Universal Handcuff Key

April 04, 2011  | 


The Magnalight universal, non-metallic UHC-4PK universal handcuff key has several key attributes which have made it an ideal insurance policy for those who face potential hostage escape scenarios. To further international availability, magnalight.com now offers the UHC-4PK-intl and UHC-16PK-intl key packs.

The UHC-4PK non-metallic handcuff key, which is composed of a non-metallic material, opens all brands of cuffs. The key itself is encapsulated in a holding ring that can be hooked to shirt buttons, sewn into clothing hems or attached to the back of watches, hats or shoes.

When in a hostage situation, the key can be silently snapped free from the hidden holding ring and then used to unlock the cuffs. The key itself is strong enough to be used as a duty key, and small enough to be concealed in a finger condom and swallowed. Available in black, olive green, tan and white, the universal handcuff key is now available in packages ranging from four to 1,000 keys.

"The Magnalight universal handcuff key is a very inexpensive insurance policy for undercover operatives, military personnel and individuals in tumultuous international environments," according to Rob Bresnahan with Larson Electronics' magnalight.com. "As riots and uprisings around to globe escalate, travelers to these countries need to prepare themselves for lawless environments.  Handcuffs are still the most popular hostage management tool, so hiding several keys on your person that are undetectable, even with metal detectors, could save your life.

Sales of this key should be limited to bona fide PO’s as it if has the potential escaping detection by magnetometers and may be secreted for criminal use. Enough metal keys already out there. I've come across three.

This is nothing new, this company had sold this key for years. There are two other companies, I will not name, that make items similar to this, but higher quality and in more varied designs.

The bottom line, if something is available, it'll be available to everyone, at some point... Just look at Thor Shield...

Good thing it's "small enough to be concealed in a finger condom, and swallowed." That's perfect! I'm sure Tommy Turd will find this useful.

These are not available to just anybody. There are a few requirements to meet before you can purchase them.
