Peerless® 700 Series and 801 Series Handcuffs, Leg Irons and Waist Chains

Peerless is conducting a voluntary program to repair certain of its 700 and 801 series restraints. Peerless has received reports that a spring in certain units identified below has failed, which could cause the locking mechanism to malfunction. Peerless is replacing the spring to ensure that the restraints meet Peerless' rigorous standards.

The 700 series restraints that are included in the repair program were manufactured from September 2005 to December 2005, and have the following serial numbers:
