HARRINGTON & RICHARDSON COME-ALONG.
These “nippers” were made in the U.S.A. by Harrington and Richardson about 1940. These are Model #126 and came in 2 sizes, this one being the longer one; the other was shorter by a couple of chain links. Weight 100 grams.
These flexible cuffs were called "Come-alongs" because once put around someone's wrist and closed, all it took was a slight twist of the wrist by the person in charge and no matter what size that prisoner was......they came-along without an argument!
They originally sold in catalogues for 75 cents.
Comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.
