Yaaaaaaaaaay!! I have shown you these strange cuffs before (click here), but back then I ran this blog all alone, and I couldn’t really cuff myself with these very odd and heavy manacles…
But now I have my trusty assistant Anahí, I can show you everything I want and demonstrate it on her (sorry Anahí)!! These cuffs are very strange, they are used to clamp pipes, but they also fit my wrists, and as you can see they will also fit Anahí. We discuss the swivel action (some bad ass rotation on these cuffs!) and the weight of the cuffs. They do not lock but when you make them tight enough it will be impossible to escape!
A fan borrowed me these very rare handcuffs to show you! They are bat cuffs! Real steel handcuffs, in the coolest design you have ever seen, fully functional and operated with a standard handcuff key! The bullet shape hinge, the radical swing through edges, they look like they are straight from the batman movies! And the best part: they are very nice to wear! You just have to watch out not to poke anyone with the rather sharp edges :)
This is so cool! A big thanks to the person who borrowed me these cuffs to show to you! I hope I will own a pair of these one day! Or better yet, I hope to design my own Chrissy handcuffs! Any engineers reading this?
A question I get a lot: how long can I stay locked in a rigid fiddle? And thumb cuffs? Well, in this webcam video I will tell you my thoughts about it. I am not going to actually try it yet (I will do that later), but I am just thinking about what problems I would run into when I am restrained in this way.
I like a challenge, and the fiddle is one of my absolute favourites! With thumbcuffs it becomes harder to manipulate objects, but that is no problem for me. I can still eat, drink, do my makeup, watch tv, use a computer, and sleep. What more do I need? Ah yes, the toilet… I will have to think about that. A skirt might be a solution.
I might try 24 hours soon! Alone or with a friend… who knows!
Okay, here is another fail! :D I thought it would be a very good idea to handcuff myself inside a very hard cardboard tube. Since I can not break this tube, I would have to get someone to saw or cut it off, before I can unlock my handcuffs! That part sounds good, doesn’t it!?
Well, unfortunately, the handcuffing-myself-inside-the-tube part was the real problem, I tried and tried for a long time, but I couldn’t figure out how to do it. There is no room for the cuffs to open and swing through inside the tube. So I tried to stick my hand through a loose cuff and tighten it, but I couldn’t do it. Then I tried to stick my whole arm through the tube, but then I could not bend my elbow to slide it back down… what a dilemma! Do you see a solution, because I reaaaaally want to be stuck like this for a few hours!
Now these handcuffs are very original! They are used to build scaffolding, so they are designed to hold pipes together, but I found they can also hold wrists together! They are very nice and shiny, they look great and they even rotate! I love my scaffolding handcuffs, even though I can not really put them on myself properly. I think I need some help with those. And when I am tightly locked into these, I don’t think I could get out!!
A parcel arrived containing some mysterious looking cuffs. The two halves can be locked together using a tiny padlock. All I know is they are medieval looking and they are probably rare. I don’t think there is a lot of demand for these, so not a lot will be made. Here is a webcam video of me showing you these new cuffs, they are very hard to lock onto yourself!
If anyone knows what type of cuffs this is, or maybe a name for them, please let me know!
A fan sent me a pair of handcuffs I am not so sure about. They are a copy of the Hiatt high security handcuffs. There is a normal key and a flat high security key, and I think you need both to unlock these cuffs. I am very afraid to put these on, for a number of reasons. First of all, in the letter there is a warning to make a copy of the key first (as it is unique). Secondly, they are copies, not real ones, so I could be risking getting very very stuck in these. So I will just show and explain these, and investigate a little more, before risking a(nother) trip to the fire department…
Yaaaaaaaaaaaay, a new challenge! I saw this one on the internet somewhere, I thought it looked great! I just had to try this.
I cuff one wrist to my elbow and then the other wrist to the other elbow. Complicated, but it feels great! Not much room to move and it is really hard to escape (which is the best feeling ever!).
I am soooo happy right now!!
I have done this so many times… but never with a friend! So let’s find out if it is easier or harder! Me and Anahí pick lots of cuffs from my collection and start cuffing ourselves to the bed, totally random, and it looks kind of messy. The key is on the other side of the bed. I think we will get out when we cooperate, maybe even a lot faster than my solo escapes!
Here’s an interesting request: do another bed challenge, only this time cuffing my ankles to the bed frame behind me, and cuffing my wrists to the sides, also behind me. The key is in front of me, out of reach! It may be a little complicated to understand, but here is a YouTube link to my explanation (quick, before YouTube removes it… apparently they don’t like me). This challenge was definitely harder than the last bed challenge! It seems you are getting smarter every week, I’m already afraid to open my mailbox :D
I get so many requests for showing my daily routine in cuffs, so here is another installment: doing laundry! It takes a little more time, because you have to remember your wrists are connected, which makes it hard to set up the laundry rack and unfold the washing. Sorry about the noise of the leg irons chain on the tile floor, it’s a good sound, but maybe a bit too loud in the video? Now I wonder, is there anyone out there who does their washing in cuffs? Or is it just me?
Ah, this is a hard one too… I am cuffed to a radiator in the hallway and the key is around the corner, well out of reach. Fortunately for me I am cuffed to a stretchy workout thing, so there might be a little hope of an escape. This thing is very hard to stretch, which is probably good for exercising, but not good for me… I need to keep a lot of tension on this thing to get to the key, and even then I can only hope to reach the key with my mouth, not with my hands…
