Armament Systems and Procedures (ASP), a provider of law enforcement equipment and tactical training, will be exhibiting at the European Airline Training Symposium (EATS) for the first time this year. The company will be showcasing its Tri-Fold system—a collection of lightweight, cabin-safe, single-use restraints and related accessories for use in controlling unruly passengers during flight.
ASP Tri-Folds collapse into a compact stowage configuration, each taking up less than 9 cubic inches of space. When needed, the polymer restraints pop out to create two large loops that are easy to slip on even the largest wrists. A quick pull of the central loop tightens and secures the Tri-Folds, and further security is provided by a push-button compression lock. The restraints do not use keys — they must be cut off — and the company offers an accessory called a Scarab Cutter, as a completely safe means of accomplishing this. Other system accessories include stowage bands and a variety of storage cases.
ASP Vice President of Sales, Daryell Harmon — who will be in the company’s booth (#527) at the EATS Conference — describes the Tri-Fold system as being optimal for aviation: Harmon says, “We understand the unique concerns of the industry, including space, weight, cost, and above all, safety. And this solution ticks all those boxes.” Harmon says that ASP Tri-Folds have been adopted by many airlines and explains that the company also offers free passenger control training to companies deploying the system. ASP has also produced a video about its aviation products, available on the news section of the EATS website.
