Harness Prevents Running Escape (Apr, 1935)
Harness Prevents Running Escape
A HANDCUFF harness which prevents a prisoner from running away has been devised by Guy E. Lombard, Portland, Maine jailer. The harness consists of a steel ring held to the prisoners’ waist by a stout leather belt. The handcuffs are fastened to the belt, holding the prisoner’s hands so close to his body that he cannot gain balance to run.
