I have been cuffed twice by law enforcement and once by corrections including leg chains and waist chains.
The first was what I think you are talking about, cuffs with short chain between. I think I could have pulled a Houdini.
Corrections was similar but linked to waist chains and connected to the next prisoner. Leg cuffs were like wrist cuffs but a bit longer chain between. Awful chaffing no matter how carefully you shuffled along.
The second type of handcuff was similar but a hinge between the cuffs instead of a chain. Very awkward, very restrictive. No movement was practical in them.
None of them would I use in play.
