For over 22 years TUFF-TIES have been providing a smart alternative to the carrying of multiple heavy metal cuffs and the cumbersome and often-dangerous rigid plastic restraint commonly found hanging off an officer’s already overcrowded gunbelt.
THE ONLY NYLON BRAID DISPOSABLE RESTRAINT ON THE MARKET
Especially popular with veteran plainclothes, narcotic, and SWAT units.
STRENGTH - TUFF-TIES are at least 40% stronger than electrical cable style ties.
EASE OF CARRYING/CONCEALMENT - Plastic cable ties are normally carried in the hatband or looped over the officer's belt. Multiple pairs of TUFF-TIES easily fit in the pocket, the cavity of the handcuff case, the glove box of the car, etc. When carried in the pocket, TUFF-TIES will not become entangled. Undercover officers commonly conceal the TUFF-TIES in the tops of their socks.
STORAGE LIFE - TUFF-TIES have unlimited storage life. Plastic cable ties have been known to deteriorate over time requiring periodic replacement of inventory.
NON-INJURIOUS TO PRISONERS - Less flexible plastic cable ties have distinct edges which can result in self inflicted injury by a struggling prisoner. TUFF-TIES are soft, flexible, have no sharp edges, and conform to the contours of the wrist. They were designed to not cut into the skin. Unlike cable ties, TUFF-TIES are designed with a small amount of "give" to prevent cutting off circulation.
WEATHER CONDITIONS - Plastic cable ties can deteriorate when exposed to sunlight or heat. TUFF-TIES are impervious to any kind of weather conditions. TUFF-TIES are unaffected by exposure to sunlight and they remain flexible even in the coldest weather.
LOCKING - TUFF-TIES are locked in by 18 polycarbonate teeth.
QUALITY MATERIAL - TUFF-TIE blocks are made from the highest quality polycarbonates. The braid is of the same nylon cord that is used in truck radial tires. Additionally, a component is added to the block to make it practically indestructible. Every unit is inspected prior to sale.
PRICE - TUFF-TIES are now very competitively priced, especially when the low cost of the removal tool is considered.

COMBUSTIBLE - Both the plastic cable ties and the TUFF-TIES are combustible when an ignition source is maintained. A prisoner theoretically could burn them off. Severe burn injury would most likely result. In any event, as a matter of standard police procedure, no prisoner should ever be allowed access to ignition devices or left unattended. Likewise, common sense and training dictates that the officer should not allow a restrained prisoner to engage in a "sawing" motion against a fixed jagged or abrasive object as it may cut through all types of temporary restraints.
EASE OF USE - The TUFF-TIE pre-formed loops slip easily over the prisoners' wrists or legs and are snugged and locked in seconds.
