At least that what I'm using it for. No jokes about using these in the bedroom allowed. It was a rusty greasy mess when I got it. A little scrubbing with Ajax, a 4 day soak in Iron Out, a coating of Ospho, a coat of Penetrol and then oiled up with Gibbs penetrating oil. Blacksmith forged, even the key and locks. It appears to have a copper alloy instead of a brass alloy for the welding. I made the mistake of seeing if they fit me and it's a lot easier to get even one side off if you have two hands. I don't think I could get them both unlocked by myself. The lock is tricky, but I have been practicing. Since they aren't adjustable I'm assuming the lawmen had a variety of sizes. These fit me, snug, and I can't get my hand out.
