Cuff-Man Arrest & Control Dummy

(ECD Vest sold separately)

Not everyone in Law Enforcement or Security carries a Baton, Taser, or Pepper Spray, but every officer carries handcuffs. However, Arrest and Control and Hand Cuff Training is the most overlooked training in the profession.  It is also THE Perishable Skill where most injuries occur!


Why not get more out of your In-service training?  Use Cuff Men in the academy during remedial training to teach proper techniques, AND reduce your injuries.  Then, have him available the other 51 weeks out of the year so that your officers can stay proficient and practice the techniques they are taught.

Motor memory can ONLY come from repetition.  Proficiency cannot come from training a particular Perishable Skill once or twice per year.

Cuff-Man is a human featured training dummy with flexible joint action in his wrists, elbows, shoulders, knees and hips. Locking elbows allow you to perform a variety of arm-bar techniques or arm pinnings as well. His hands and fingers are made from a flexible yet durable poly-urethane compound for a realistic feel while using real hand cuffs, and can tolerate thousands of cuffing scenarios. He possesses an extended chin for realistic grappling techniques while ground fighting.
With those features in mind - consider the concept:
Special Velcro loop is sewn into his heavy duty Cordura suit, both front and back, and a slender back board is wrapped with Velcro hook. With the back board installed in a provided free standing mount, Cuff-Man is able to stand on his own at any height desired. Once standing, arrest and control techniques can be performed on Cuff-Man from both front or rear.  Just like any resisting suspect, added force is required to pull Cuff-Man to the ground without any hindering ropes of cables.

Perfect Practice makes Perfect!

Without Cuff Man, you're likely throwing your training time and money into the wind!

"We have been using Cuff Man for a variety of handcuffing techniques.  This has been an exceptional tool to each hand cuffing techniques at “Full Speed” without injuring each other during training.  Cuff Man paid for himself on the 1st day of training.  Great concept. Great product!"


"We saw Cuff Man being used at the Taser Master Instructor Course in Charlotte.  Following the course we purchased three of them to teach “Cuffing under Load” as Taser®  recommends. This is an excellent training product that has improved our training and reduced our injuries and liability.  Now we know why Taser®  recommends them."


"We have had Cuff Man for a few years and have reduced our work related injuries during hand cuff training.  We recently purchased the ECD Vest for out Taser® training. This has been a comprehensive training aid to teach hand- cuffing technics and Cuffing-under-Load."


"Dear Mr. Tanzini,
Our agency has been using the Cuff Man training dummy for approximately 2 years.  We started using him as directed by your company, for standing handcuffing procedures, takedowns, and handcuffing from the prone positions.  We then had some 12 ga. bean bag training coming up and needed a target to train with.  That’s when we placed the Cuff Man on the stand and crossed our fingers to see if he could handle the impact. The Cuff Man took the hits like a real man.  From that day on we have conducted bean bag training with the Cuff Man without incident.  The only injury he has suffered was some amputated toes during mobile hostage rescue training with our departments Emergency Response Team. Our agency is extremely impressed with the durability and training value that this Cuff Man has provided our agency.
