This is what I always think.

The only reason I could see using a shim is if a improvised key broke off in the lock making it unusable and they were not double locked while they were on a person you could shim them, I guess? What a scenario.

As I read your post, it all came rushing back into my brain. Of course you don't need the peg to get OUT.... DERF!

They don't have a peg for double locking cuffs, which since it seems that most cuffs in use these days are double locking and anyone with any sense is going to double lock them, they are kind of pointless other than being a novelty.

Cool nonetheless.

I'm not so sure it's a major disadvantage not having the double locking peg on the cufflinks. Most people who apply handcuffs will usually have a proper key, if not a giant oversized key/pen to make it easier when applying the double lock.

Since these cufflinks were made for someone to covertly slip OUT of the handcuffs, the double locking peg isn't necessary. To unlock double locked cuffs, you only have to insert the regular key tip, turn it one way to undo the double lock, then turn it the other way to release the pawl and unlock the shackle.

I suppose there could be less common brands of cuffs that require that peg to undo the double lock, but off the top of my head I can't recall ever running across a pair in the field that worked that way.

Now, the tool I keep seeing for sale that I find kind of useless is the handcuff shim. Most of the ones I've run across are so thick they won't function well until you reshape the tip a little bit, and even then, they will not work on double locked cuffs. So unless you've been cuffed by a lazy Dominatrix, an untrained security guard or someone else equally useless, then yes, your cuffs will be double locked, behind your back.
