The "Long-Sleeves" Straitjacket

I purchased this unusual straitjacket through e-bay during the summer of 2000 for about $150. The previous owner apparently picked it up at a surplus auction by the PA state police. I am using the name "Long-Sleeves" because I first saw a picture of it on SJ Floats. That was the name used for it their because of the jacket's very long sleeves.

Note that the front closure on this jacket makes it much easier to escape from. You can see the buckles as you try to loosen them.

ls-018t.jpg ls-019t.jpg ls-022t.jpg These three shots show the buckle for the arm/sleeve strap. This straitjacket is not very secure buckled this way. It took me about four minutes to get out.
ls-001t.jpg This shot shows an alternate placement of the sleeve/arm strap/buckle and an alternate buckling arrangement. This would make escape MUCH more difficult.
