Don’t you just love the name?
This is a must have for your SERE / E&E kit. This is the smallest hideout handcuff key I have ever seen. You can clip or tuck it just about anywhere. I have tried this key on a set of ASP handcuffs and a set of peerless, the key work fine on both.....
The one thing you have to be aware of is if you are handcuffed properly i.e. back of your hands together palms facing outboard, then it will take some practice to reach the hide out key and then trying to rotate your wrist so that the palms are facing each other.
Depending on how tight the handcuffs are placed on your wrist, rotating your wrists inboard will also be very painful as well. Once your palms are together facing inboard you will now be in a much better position to manipulate the handcuff key inside the handcuff keyway.
