Hiatt Handcuffs was aquired by American company Armor Holdings in 2006. Armor Holdings was then aquired by British company BAE Systems. The Hiatt factory in Birmingham, England was closed in late June, 2008 and will reopen in Fitzwilliam, New Hampshire later this year. Future Hiatts products will be stamped made in USA. We currently have a large inventory, but their may be shortages of Hiatts products before they reopen.
