Hiatt Handcuffs in England was acquired by American company Armor Holdings in 2006. Armor Holdings was then acquired by British company BAE Systems. The Hiatt factory in Birmingham, England was closed in late June, 2008. BAE moved the Hiatt factory to New Hampshire and began making the Hiatt handcuff line under the Safariland brand. In 2010, they closed the New Hampshire factory and began making them in Ontario, CA. All restraints made by BAE companies were placed under the Safariland brand. This includes Monadnock disposable restraints and NIK Flex-Cufs, Tranzport Hoods, and Spit Nets. In 2012 Safariland was acquired in a private equity deal led by the former CEO of Armor Holdings, Warren Kanders. Kanders is the Chairman and CEO of the new company which will continue to be named Safariland.
All Safariland restraints will placed under the Monadnock umbrella beginning 2014. Safariland handcuffs have been branded Hiatt again. The old Monadnock double cuffs and spare cuffs that were switched to Safariland will be Monadnock again. And the old NIK Flex-Cufs, Tranzport Hoods, and Spit Nets that became Safariland will move back to their original home under Forensic Source (formerly NIK Public Safety). Production has been moved from Ontario, CA to Pittsfield, MA. This is the same factory that makes Monadnock products. We are adding the new Hiatt models to the website as they are shipped to us. We have most in stock already.
All colored handcuffs have been discontinued. They are now available only in black and nickel. All colored Monadnock Double Cuffs have also been discontinued. We still have large inventories of some colors, but availability is limited to stock on hand.

We just got our first shipment of Rivolier handcuffs and leg irons from France. These are the restraints used by most law enforcement and corrections in France. Handcuffs are more oval shaped than other brands to better match the shape of the human wrist. They are constructed of aluminum bodies with steel swinging bows and chains. The product line includes high security handcuffs and leg irons that use standard keys plus a tumbler key to lock and unlock the double locks. Available at Handcuff Warehouse: Rivolier handcuffs.
