Re: 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:

    Model 700: Chain Link Handcuff: 453501 to 485060

    Model 7030: Oversize Chain Link Handcuff: 099251 to 105200

    Model 7002: Waist Chain: 026526 to 027260

    Model 7003: Waist Chain: 032101 to 033025

The 801 series restraints that are included in the repair program were manufactured from May 2005 to December 2005, and have the following serial numbers:

The Model Number and Serial Number are located near the key holes on the restraints.

Also included in the program are any restraints sent for lock-related repairs from May 2005 to December 2005.

Only restraints with the serial numbers identified above or that were repaired from May 2005 to December 2005 may contain the potentially affected spring. Therefore, other restraints are excluded from the repair program.

Please check your restraints/inventory for the affected Models and Serial Numbers. These units should be returned to Peerless for service. All shipping and repair will be free of charge.
