This new spit hood manufactured by Chicago Handcuff Company is designed to prevent inmates from having the ability to spit at officers. This spit hood is designed to protect security professionals from communicable disease spread through saliva. If an inmate is being unruly and dangerous by spitting at officers this spit hood can easily and safely be put over their heads and the nylon mesh will allow the inmate to breathe while restricting fluids from exiting.
Note: The Chicago Spit Hood should not be used on any person who is unconscious, vomiting, in respiratory distress, or in obvious need of medical attention. Anyone wearing a spit hood should be under the constant supervision of responsible parties.
