Hi everyone,
It has been a while since I graced these pages......lucky you!

I hope that anyone here can help me with a small project that I have worked on.
I wrote a review on ebay that might help a buyer of handcuffs on eBay spot a fake cuff and hopefully refrain from bidding too high. At any given moment, there are several dozen cuffs being sold as authentic slave, Civil War, Alcatraz Prison cuffs and come with fabulous stories. Other than Handcuff.org, there is hardly anyplace a buyer can learn how to spot a fake. In my small way, I hope they can find my review and learn a thing or two. If contacted, I would direct them to H.C..Org and to this site for more info. I hope I can help the hobby grow by offering some advice and resources.
What I am asking for is a YES vote on my review page. To vote, you must be logged on to eBay and have at least 5 feedbacks. To find my review, you can look up under bidders and enter "cuffs". From there, you click onto my "me" icon next to my name and then click "Top 5000 Reviewers". My article about cuff collecting will appear and the YES button is down at the bottom. Once I reach 100 YES votes, the icon becomes permanent.

You may also just click here:

I thank each one of you for your time and trouble and please come to me if you already have or decide to write a similar review. I like to return a favor when I can.
I hope you enjoy the article and am open to suggestions too.

I wish all of you a Happy and SAFE New Years

Hi
No, The only way is if you have at least two ebay names.
Also, I believe some of the votes went to waste because the rules state that the voter must have 5 or more feedbacks be be able to vote.
Thanks to you kind people, I am 3/4 of the way there. just about 25 more to go...
Thanks for all the help and kindness

Hi everybody,
I want to thank all of you for your time and interest on my small project. I was able to accomplish in about a weeks time what could have taken a whole year.
I have received emails from people considering buying garbage with good money and they were smart enough to write to me for advice. I prevented a couple of costly mistakes so far.
Some of you should consider writing a similar guide about straight jackets, trick hasps and padlocks, or escapology in general. That side of the hobby/profession should have an easy source to go to for advice. As I write this letter of thanks, The Cannons comes to mind. I will mention it to them, but still think you guys have a ton to offer.
Well, thanks again for all you help and be SAFE out there!
