Manufactured by Fetters (15 of 24)

The Fetters line is manufacturer for and distributed by Mr. S Leather and Fetters. Originally manufactured in the UK, they are now made in the US. The originals had fully welded hinges and were made of a shiny hard steel. The newer ones are not welded at the hinges and are of a softer (easier on the skin too) powder coated iron. They are made from 1.5" wide 1/8" thick strap iron. The hinges are rolled from the straps rather than separate. The locks are typically an allen wrench bolt in one side which screws into a nut on the other side. The key is distinctively cross shaped with a short allen key as the long extension.

The Pre-18th century design is based on historical patterns from the UK and europe. Simple and chunky.

Fetters Rigid Boot Leg Irons

Type: Leg Irons

These Rigid Leg Irons, from the Pre-18th Century line, are larger than normal - nearly 4" in diameter. Intended to fit over motorcycle boots and the like. It is unlikely that one could move much at all wearing these. They have a standard allen wrench bolt lock mechanism used in most Fetters products. People with smaller feet could probably shake them off once the boots were removed.
