About this object

Wrought iron Darby style adjustable handcuffs with single locking position. Each cuff is hinged and is locked in place by a key. As they are adjustable they could be fitted to individual inmates, making them more versatile than their non-adjustable predecessors.

There are no accession records for this object, so we can not definitively link them to the Police at Riverton or local use.
