A metal detector, torch, UV light and Handcuffs all in one handy Baton shaped package. This would be a great help when doing my door work, and enable me to get rid of the bulky items I have to carry around. It should be about 20cm long (8”inches) and about 4cm square (1 Œ inches). The metal detector would vibrate rather than beep. The UV light is ideal for showing up the white powdery stuff and the handcuffs would be of the quick fastening tape variety, which shoot out of the ends of the stick. Also if the poop hits the fan it would make a handy club!

I can see the combination of torch, metal detector and club (I was once told this is why security guards carry their torches above their sholder, so they can bring it down easily if someone jumps them) but the handcuffs...cant see how they would fit in.

Unless of course they were sprung hi-tech handcuffs in which case have some pastry

The handcuffs dont need to be metal, I was thinking more like plastic banding with thin steel strips in. They would only be used to detain an individual until the police actaully turn up. And yes, its easier to get a down swing going if the Torch is already up there!

zipties work just fine as handcuffs and are easy to store in a baton shaped device.

But you better not use them in the US, unless you want to be arrested for false imprisonment.

I'm surprised at that, however in the uk you can use cuffs if you have attended the correct courses and hold the relevant certifactes. Of course its not illegal to own them.....

From my days in security you could tell people to leave, but you could not make them stay. Unless you were a real cop.

As long as only reasonble force is used, you can make them stay!

Reasonable force being defined as asking "Pretty please" sotto voce, while avoiding a hostile body posture?
