Irish8 palms out is extremely strict!! But what if your Irish8’s are just a tiny bit too big and your cuffing victim can turn her wrists back? Well, then you can add a pair of thumbcuffs. This prevents turning the wrists back and you will be incredibly stuck! No escape possible, even if you have the keys. Do not try this at home!
Did you know there is a super evil Irish8 position for your legs?! In this video, I will demonstrate this on Zara. She will get completely stuck and it will hurt a lot if she tries to move. It’s perfect! I left her there for quite a while hahaha :)
This was a really difficult one! I was cuffed with Irish8’s to a ladder, and the key was sitting about halfway on the same ladder. I couldn’t reach it with my hands. I tried dropping it onto the floor and grabbing it with my feet, but I was leg ironed as well, so I couldn’t get the key into my hands. After a while, I found a solution! I wonder if you could have worked it out? It’s a very challenging escape puzzle!
A video of me and Zara exploring the differences between butterfly cuffs and Irish 8 cuffs!!
We went to a park to play with some Irish 8 handcuffs. There were a lot of people around! They saw us but no one said anything. These are the smallest size Irish 8 cuffs, but they are still too big for Zara, much to my amazement!!
Each of us has a pair of Irish 8 but there are small differences among them. We compared keys, keyholes, and which ones are easier to get out of. Let’s see how many differences you can find.
After all these years experimenting with handcuffs I am quite used to the Irish 8 and I love them, because they hold the wrists closer together than any other cuffs! It is so amazing to see how surprised Zara is and how awkward her movements are when putting them on. Also, why not be mean and challenge her already to escape them!? Maybe she will get super good, I need to practice!
Watch the first time of Zara in Irish 8 cuffs!
We have used the Irish 8 more often but it never gets old! Especially not when trying it on Hannah who is all new to this. These tight cuffs are so much fun!
I thought it would be fun to lock myself in the Irish 8 in a different way and see if this is easier or harder to escape. Wrists crossed, palms out! You know I love challenges guys, have you tried the Irish 8 this way? Looking forward to your comments.
The first race of 2015!! Me and Anahí are competing again! We are cuffed with three different pairs of handcuffs, which all require different keys! Irish 8 handcuffs (very hard to open), normal chain handcuffs, and LIPS hinged handcuffs. Then we have to unlock our neck cuff as well (which is incredibly hard, because you can not see the keyhole!).
Who will win the first race of 2015? The outcome may surprise you!
Not sure why these cuffs are called Irish 8s, but me and Anahí are tightly cuffed in them on our game night! As far as wrist closeness is concerned, these cuffs are the top of the line! Your wrist are so close together, you have to do everything with 2 hands at the same time. And that’s not easy when you are playing a game where you have to move little balls around a board!
Me and Anahí are really training ourselves lately to be able to spend more time in these Irish 8s. We haven’t done 24 hours yet, but maybe we will try that soon! It is so hard to move around in these! Any suggestions for Irish 8 challenges are very welcome!
Boring video? Not at all if you are interested in Irish 8 limitations! But in case you think so, I have made this one very low priced :)
Some people have emailed me to say that I will never be able to escape from my Irish 8 handcuffs, wrists stacked behind my back. Well, I don’t see what is hard about that! It is fairly easy to do, and I will show you in this video!
Hmm, now I think about it, it might not be so easy if the keyhole is facing the other way… what do you think? Have you tried it?
I have received some questions about my Irish 8 handcuffs. There are two types in my collection: the snap shut model and the old fashioned reproduction. What is the difference? Well, what better way to explain than to show it to you, with a little help from my lovely assistant Anahí!! These two handcuffs are totally different. Different keys, different way of closing, different ways of escaping. The only thing that is similar is that they keep the wrists very close together and that they are both lady sized. Yes! Lady sized!!
OUCH! This one seriously hurt! Another brilliant fan suggestion… in theory… Me and Anahi are hogcuffed, but in an even more extreme way than usual: our wrists are crossed behind our backs with a pair of Irish 8’s and our legs are cuffed with ankle cuffs. This means we need two different keys each. The four keys are on the OTHER side of the room (like you always ask for in emails), so me and Anahi will have to get to the keys somehow, and then try to free ourselves. Who will win? Will anyone win??? Carpet burn here we come!!
Here is the most rigid position I have ever found myself in: Irish 8 behind the back, wrists crossed, using TWO pairs of cuffs. The double pair means the rigid area is bigger and since they are very tight I can not move my arms at all!
Worse, these cuffs require you to push the key in and pull the cuffs open at the same time. I am really hurting myself trying to even get the key in, but it is no use, this is an inescapable position.
Ever wanted to see me frustrated? Look at my face at the end of the video, I am seriously disappointed that I will have to go get someone to let me out. LOL, I really was angry…
I received some questions about my Irish 8 handcuffs, so I decided to show them again in a webcam video. I love these cuffs so much, I actually want to get a second pair. They are very heavy, but comfortably smooth. But the most important thing about them is: they snap shut so quickly! It’s click and you’re screwed! No ratchet, no adjusting. Of course, you have to get the right size for your wrists (I have the lady size, LOL I’m a lady). I will show you how to lock them on yourself, and escape again. It is harder than you think!
