Keep handcuffs clean and sanitary by maintaining them on a regular basis. With the same cleaning agent you use to clean your firearm, you can have your handcuffs looking good as new.
Things You'll Need
- Cleaning brush
- Gun-cleaning solvent
- Powdered graphite
- Cleaning rag
- Disinfectant spray
Use the brush to clean away any dirt or debris that may have accumulated on your handcuffs.
Put a small amount of gun-cleaning solvent on the brush and scrub every surface on the set of handcuffs to clean away rust and prevent new rust from forming.
Wipe the handcuffs dry with a cleaning rag.
Use powdered graphite on the hinges and ratchets of the handcuffs to keep them operating smoothly.
Spray the handcuffs with disinfectant spray to kill germs after you have used them.
Tips & Warnings
- Avoid using oil to lubricate the working parts of your handcuffs as the oil will attract dirt.
