: Hello,

: Watching a 1967 movie on a roadside jail I spotted the
: use of shackles which use rings both around the ankle
: and immediately below the knee.

: I understand from other photos that the two rings on
: one leg are rigidly connected as to avoid the rings
: twisting around. But as I did not spot a detailed view
: I was unable to see how this things do lock.

: How are these things called?

: Is there information on these on the web?
: (I have not yet seen such on various web sites)

: As they seem to be intended for quite permanent wear,
: are they actually locked on or maybe riveted on?

: Best regards
: Klaus
