Tri-Max® is CTS-Thompson's newest innovation in handcuffs. Tri-Max® bump and pick resistant technology will enhance officer safety during arrest and in-custody transport situations. Tri-Max® patented technology consists of a dual ratchet engaging independent retaining bars separated by a barrier called Pick-Shield-XLS®. Tri-Max® handcuffs are designed with a split-shackle construction. This increases the strength of the handcuffs by directing the gap between the dual shackles to pass through a rigid monorail retaining bar. Independently floating retaining bars on each side of the shackle are engaged by a double five-tooth pawl. Stamped from 1050 carbon steel, the parts are hardened from R885 to RC40 prior to assembly. This gives the Tri-Max exceptionally strong and allows maximum flexibility to avoid cracking under stress.
Gaining vertical and lateral strength, the internal bar also inhibits a shim from entering the nose or rear of the shackle. While popping the double lock may be possible, a pick has no straight line of sight to go through the handcuff to engage the rear retaining bars and depress them. Picks also don't stand a chance through the keyway.
Tri-Max retains three levels of integrity at:
- Nose of the shackle
- Rear of the shackle
- Key hole
That's why it's called TRI-MAX Security! Tri-Max® was recognized as a finalist for the Law Enforcement Technology Magazine, 2020 Innovation Award.
These Tri-Max® Oversize Chain Handcuffs also features True Swing Technology and Positive Clickbak. With True Swing Technology, the shackle will always swing straight into the body plates to lock itself into the drop bars. The Positive Clickbak® loading system provides fast back-loading and application, while raised rivets increase strength. Made in the U.S.A. and includes a lifetime limited warranty.
