Private Collection: Toy/Trick Handcuffs

Toy or trick handcuffs were a and still are a novelty item used by kids when they played cops and robbers or by magicians or people in general who wanted to play tricks on their friends and family. Even with a key there is a release on the handcuffs to allow a person to get out of them if they know how.

These cuffs are from the 1980's and are in a private collection in NW Iowa.
