Door Jam Cuffs

Doorjamb CuffsFrom SportSheets, the makers of the Penetration Station reviewed here, comes this intriguing pair of restraints: Door Jam Cuffs. Yes, "Jam" should be "Jamb" -- and, technically, the jamb is the vertical part of a door's frame -- but I'm going to forgive the manufacturer's faux pas in favor of its products' functionality. Besides, "Door Lintel Cuffs" just doesn't sound as sexy.

I'm always wary of restraints from mainstream sex toy vendors, because... well... they're usually not serious gear. They're often more visually oriented and playful, but not truly effective for bondage.

Doorjamb CuffsThis particular product has two components: the cuffs and the over-the-door straps to which the cuffs attach. The former are basically fluff. While quite comfortable, they are just not that sturdy. The soft fleece is wrapped with a 1" wide Velcro strap -- and Velcro's strength degrades over time. After a few uses, the wearer would be able to break free with a good yank.

The woven nylon door straps (with strong metal rings and clamps), however, are wonderful in their efficient functionality. Simply drape them over the top of the door and close it. Then, attach the cuffs to the straps and voilĂ ! By substituting a sturdier pair of cuffs (like, for example, these), you'd have a secure restraint system that is effortless to install, even in the heat of the moment.

I'd recommend putting the cuff-side of the system on the INSIDE of the door if weight-bearing is planned, just to provide an added measure of safety. The door jamb would then carry some of the load and avoid undue stress on the latch or the door itself (many of which are hollow at their core).

At $30, it's a little on the steep side for what you're getting, but I still recommend the product for impromptu indulgence of your kinkier side.

Until next time...

peace & passion,

Here's what Babeland has to say:
Skip the home improvement! If you'd love to see your sweetie in standing bondage but you don't want to drill rivets into your wall, try portable, easy-to-use Door Jam Cuffs. Fleece bondage cuffs with Velcro closures attach to sturdy black nylon straps that fit over any door. Short plastic tubes keep the straps in place and won't damage the door. Simply slip the straps over or under your door, then close it. Clip the cuffs onto the straps and you're ready to play! Be sure to check the circulation in your playmate's hands and feet regularly during bondage play, especially if their arms are above their head. Strap length is 8"; cuffs are 2" wide.
