Several years ago I wanted a unique way to display my handcuff collection. I happened on an estate sale in my home town and found a 100 year old exterior county jail door that weighed 250 pounds, for sale. I bought the door and proceeded to construct my 8 foot wide x 12 foot long jail cell, complete with bar-windows, the jail door and shelving to display my handcuffs on. It is constructed with 16 gage metal angle bar & 4' x 8' panels that can be disassembled for transport & re-assembled for a display. There are approximately 100 handcuffs in this display.
It is a lot of work to set-up and display, but has been a lot of fun. Getting a little to old to set it up any more.
Thanks for looking,
While the display is set up, I have rolling music in the background playing:
