Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) January 21, 2009
InventHelp®, America's largest inventor service company, announces that one of its clients, an inventor from Elk Grove, Calif., has designed a restraint device, which could prevent inmate cuff pull-away through a trayslot during cuff removal. This invention is patented.
The "Cuff Guard/Shield" would be designed to protect an officer or guard from injury as he or she removes an inmate's handcuffs. According to the inventors, the invention could prevent an inmate from assaulting an officer or guard during handcuff removal. The unit could ensure that an inmate does not pull the handcuffs away from an officer or guard.
The Cuff Guard/Shield would consist of a stainless steel device that would measure 20 inches long, 12 inches high and 3/8 inch thick. The invention would feature a hinge assembly on the left side, which would be located five inches from the bottom of the device and a locking mechanism on the right side. A pair of circular cutouts would measure three inches in diameter and be located along the hinge point. The cutouts would feature rubber inserts to protect the inmate's wrists. Once an inmate is inside of the cell and the door is closed, he or she would slide their handcuffed hands through the tray slot opening in the cell door. The officer or guard would unhinge the Cuff-Guard, place the inmate's wrist into the Cuff-Guard and close and lock the Cuff-Guard. The officer or guard would then remove the handcuffs, ensure they are out of the inmate's reach and unlock and unhinge the Cuff-Guard, which would free the inmate's hands.
InventHelp® is attempting to submit the invention to companies for review. If substantial interest is expressed, the company will attempt to negotiate for a sale or royalties for the inventor.
