Old Handcuffs.net  began life in the pre digital late 1980's as the International Handcuff Exchange. Founded by Escape Artist Michael Griffin on a never ending quest to build his collection.  Scouring flea markets, antique shops, any place that looked like it might contain the locking treasures that so captivated America's Escape Hero and award winning Magician.  

As his collection grew to epic proportions Michael realized he could fill a niche collecting area, Jail Jewelry and started issuing the newsletter IHE. International Handcuff Exchange by mailing out hand assembled paper catalogs offering some of the World's rarest handcuffs.

We are proud to introduce this new iteration of a place to BUY, SELL and TRADE antique handcuffs, leg irons, padlocks and restraints from around the World.  

Please let us know what you're looking for, or what you have to sell.
