    One pair Peerless hinged
    One pair S & W hinged
    One pair ASP chained
    One pair S & W universal fit chained

    I've actually just used WD-40 last year to clean em up, but I don't need a high polish, just the absence of rust.

    Oh yeah, and +1 to using them to keep them from rusting.

    I have both S&W and Peerless, never had a problem with either.

    By the way, where are you shopping $80 bucks for two sets of cuffs????? We sell them for a heck of a lot less then what you are paying. Depending on what you want, we average of 20-32 bucks a pair. http://www.baumshoe.com another shamless plug

    I like the Peerless better than S&W but S&W are pretty damn good

    I havent read all the posts ,but I will say this,I have been using the same set of Smiths(chain) since 1976,they are older than most people they go on.I have NEVER had a rust problem,I have NEVER had a malfunction.I have NEVER,had someone(even tiny females) slip them,andI have NEVER,really maintained them,well there was that one time before I married Daps ,with the cooking oil and .......I digress,they are excellent,they have been run over,used as defense(and offense,once),they once hung in a closet with old web gear for over 10 years ,while I took a break.Think you get the picture.

    I carry a pair of Peerless hinged (blue) and a pair of Peerless chain (stainless). I have another two sets of stainless Peerless chain in my bag along with a set of Peerless leg cuffs. I have a pair of Hiatt hinged cuffs floating around someway- haven't seen them in a while.
    I have a nice old set of stainless S&W chain. Thoses are actually the smoothest set I own. For some reason they ended up being the set I leave in my POV.

    None of mine have rusted too badly. I oil them periodically and most of them function fairly smoothly, except for the pair I used to cuff a car. They got bent out of shape.

    I have the Peerless cuffs that my department issued me. I've always been too cheap to buy another set.

    2x S&W M-100P chain cuffs and 2x Hiatts chain cuffs. No rust problems, but I'm in a pretty dry area...

    I carry the standard Pearless...nothing special about them, but extremely reliable. I used to carry two sets of s&w, and I don't like the double locks, and one of the locks jams up on me on occasion, so i'm not to impressed with them.

    OK.....here's the Monster method for cleaning cuffs.

    1. Get a pot that your wife doesn't mind u screwing up. Place your cuffs in said pot, opened. Put several inches of water in said pot. Place on stove and bring water to a boil for about 10 minutes.

    2. Take the cuffs out of the boiling water. Best way is to just run cold in it. Leave them open and place them in the oven. Preheat the oven to 200-250 or so. Let the cuffs stay in till they are dry.

    3. Once the cuffs are dry take them out and lay them, still opened, onto an old towel. Soak the shit out of them with Break Free. Even squirt some down into the innards and onto the arms and mechanisms. Let stand for several hours minimum. Wipe off the excess and you're good to go.

    For chained I use Peerless and for my hinged I use S&W. The only cuffs I ever had a problem with was Hiatts.
    Are you a 3%er? If you aren't, you should be.
