Hi guys , I have a "Super High" brand of handcuffs which seems to be made in thailand , however I no longer have the key with me anymore and I cannot seem to find any similar keys that is able to unlock that type of lock for this handcuffs. It is a pinwheel type ratchet and it does not seem like the universal type of keyhole instead it seems to be a non-standard type keyhole. Is there anyone that can either tell me if there is somewhere else selling an extra keys for this or do I have to make one for it ? If I do have to make one for it, would it be possible to give me a rough guide on how to do it? The attached link is an image of the cuffs which I am referring to:
If you fold a paperclip close together and bend that into an L shape with the bottom of the L only sticking far enough out to reach from the circle part into the opening down a the bottom of the cuff, then turn clockwise. I would bet it would open. As for making a legitimate key, you would need some metal and a hacksaw to cut parts out and a file to smooth things down.
Reminds me of some Russian keyways.
The above are in eBay somewhere. I have seen them in the UK.
