as you see here the hand restraints were put on with the key hole facing down his wrists while police and other law enforcement agencies always apply restraints with the key hole away from you.... for this very reason. the best solution is to not get handcuffed l2runfaster.

cody, sorry to break it to you but ive tried this on my dads handcuff (dont ask) and you can manage it both ways...the keyhole away and towards your body. even with your hands behind your back.

1: That method will not work if the cuffs are double-locked. I have never been cuffed without double-locks except while inside the prison/jail...but inside a prison where are you gonna go after your out of the cuffs? They ALWAYS double lock when your in transit.

2: They almost always (but not all of the time), cuff you with your hands behind your back and with the keyholes facing up your arms, making it extremely difficult to gain access to the hole. If your cuffed in the front you can simply twist the wrist and get at the keyhole, but cuffed in the back you have to be very flexible to get to the hole (when cuffed properly).

Here is a video of a guy that uses a completely different method. He slips double locked cuffs with a pad-locked encasement around the keyhole.... a real pro.
