When folded, there are no protruding pins or projecting openers. The AutoKey can be hung on a keychain or carried in a pocket. The design is ergononic and smooth. The handcuff key is released by depressing the ASP Strike Force logo button. A double lock pin is exposed by pushing the double lock slide forward.
The AutoKey incorporates the ASP BackSet feature that allows an officer to rapidly locate the keyway, even in the dark. By running the tip back and forth over the surface of the cuff, the protruding shaft will fall into the keyhole. The key is rotated until it drops into the keyway of the handcuff. Each AutoKey is fashioned from precision machined, heat treated stainless steel. As with all ASP handcuff keys, these are the toughest keys in the industry.
The AutoKey is simple and sleek. Small enough for constant carry, yet robust enough for duty use.
