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.
