The Last Word in Stylish Personal Restraints
It’s here: the first and only screen-accurate replica of Jayne Cobb’s
wrist strap – just like the first version of the wrist strap worn by actor Adam

the replica will stand up to a lifetime of rugged use, and is ideal as an essential
Jayne costume accessory or as a display piece in its own right.
