Product Review: The Utimi Fetish Under Bed Restraint Kit (With Hand Cuff and Ankle Cuff Bondage)

“I would seriously suggest that everyone get one of these”

Those were the first words out of Mr. Peaches’ mouth when I told him the price of this restraint kit after we’d given it a thorough test. Said in an incredibly strong manner. I have never seen Mr. Peaches so enthused about a product before. And having been on both ends of this restraint kit I can totally see why.

The Utimi Fetish Under Bed Restraint Kit (With Hand Cuff and Ankle Cuff Bondage) is a fantastic piece of kit which is honestly brilliant for anyone looking to explore bondage. This kit is incredibly easy to use, very comfortable, effective in its adjustments & positioning, surprisingly sturdy, and (somehow) only $16.29 (less if you count the 20% discount I have to offer you).

I’m speechless.

The Utimi Fetish Under Bed Restraint Kit (With Hand Cuff and Ankle Cuff Bondage)

So let’s break this down, shall we?

The Utimi Fetish Under Bed Restraint Kit is a brilliantly straightforward piece of kit which allows you to turn your normal bed in to your very own bondage bed. It does so through a simple set of straps and cuffs which you simply slide in to place under your mattress and then adjust as needed.

This kit is very simple to use and yet so effective that it should be considered a bedroom essential for the bondage-interested couple.

In fact this product works so well that it’s actually hard to write more about it beyond ‘It works’ and ‘Go get one now’ but I’ll try my best.

The adjustable straps of this restraint kit are made out of nylon whereas the cuffs themselves are lined with faux fur fabric and locked in to place via velco on nylon straps. While this may not sound like the most attractive aesthetic for high-end Doms it is great for anyone starting out with bondage or for those who don’t mind a softer aesthetic.

The fact that the materials used for this product were man-made was actually incredibly important for me—as since going vegan I’ve begun to notice just how much of the BDSM community is associated with leather (something that I also admire the aesthetic of but have chosen to opt out of endorsing where possible). As such these cuffs also offer a great alternative for users who do not like the typical leather restraints that a lot of companies sell or who have chosen to avoid leather for ethical reasons.

The only fault I can sincerely lobby against this kit is that it doesn't photograph well in dim British weather (but then again maybe I should blame my camera or photography skills for that rather than the kit).

Sadly I don’t have the measuring tape nor the arms to fully measure the length of the under-bed straps for the Utimi Fetish Under Bed Restraint Kit but I can tell you that it fit comfortably under my queen-sized bed with room to spare and that other reviewers on Amazon have reported a similarly good fit. I have not tried it on our super king but that’s mainly because lifting the mattress would kill me.

For most beds, though, placing in the Utimi Fetish Under Bed Restraint Kit is incredibly simple. All you need to do is lift the edge of the mattress and place the straps under (with your partner doing the same on the other side of the bed) and from there you can both shuffle it up in to place. No need to struggle and it’s done in under a minute.

The handcuffs used for this kit have a maximum circumference of 14 inches (which should more than accommodate most people’s wrists and ankles) but the furry section is only 9.25 inches in length. Mr. Peaches and I still found this to be more than enough room, though. In fact we tested both sides of the spectrum—as I have very slender wrists and his are bulky—so we’re willing to say that these cuffs will probably work very well for most users.

Both of our initial assumption was that because these cuffs are velcro they would be easy to break out of should the occasion arise. However we were soon proven wrong when Mr. Peaches tugged as firmly as he could on the cuffs and found that they didn’t budge at all. This is both a good and a bad thing. On the one hand it means that these cuffs are amazingly, unexpectedly sturdy and once they’re on they really aren’t going anywhere unless serious effort is exerted. On the other hand it does mean that you may be in a difficult situation should an emergency arise.

Granted this restraint kit does have a weak spot and that’s its links, which probably would give under considerable force or vigorous use over time. Out of the box, though, these links and clips can still take a reasonable amount of playful squirming and not show any ill effect. As such I’m willing to bet that the average user will get a heck of a lot of use out of this restraint kit before they detect any noticeable wear and tear. Even then these cuffs and links can easily be replaced thanks to the simple design of this kit.

The cuffs themselves are made of a mid-thickness fabric which imitates fur and thus feels very comfortable against the skin. When you struggle against these cuffs they stroke you in return and, again, this might not be what some Ds and Ss want but it should work well for most beginners, those who are indifferent to how their cuffs feel, or those who like to feel comfortable when restrained.

For me these cuffs actually played right in to the kink that I’m dabbling in at the moment, which is puppy play. As you can imagine, while restrained in these fur cuffs I could close my eyes and essentially imagine that it was my own fur that I was feeling rubbing against the cuffs, rather than the cuffs themselves being furry. For me this definitely added to the immersion of my experience and I wonder if this might be the case for other pups too.

But not only is this kit easy to put in place, and easy to cuff your partner firmly with but it’s also easy to adjust too. Each handcuff has its own plastic clip which allows you to spread your partner’s limb with the simple tug of each nylon cord. This feels incredibly intuitive, to the point where it can actually play in to a scene—with quick flicks and tugs of the nylon straps acting as playful punishment for when a sub is stepping out of line. This was our experience at least and it made using this kit all the more enjoyable.

For me these toys played in to my kink rather than acting against it.

While this kit did not come with any cleaning instructions we imagine that because it’s faux fur and nylon it should be pretty easy to clean. I’ll personally be doing a hand wash and feel confident in doing so.

And that really is it.

You’re probably expecting me to mention downsides here but there really aren’t none. The only thing Mr. Peaches and I could vaguely speculate on is that if you get sweaty then the fur of the cuffs might feel uncomfortable as they get sweaty but we didn’t have an experience with it ourselves.

Of course if you’re in to a particular aesthetic (leather or metal for example) then this kit isn’t going to cut it and hard-core bondage enthusiasts may find the simplicity and build of these cuffs to be lacking compared to some rigs but generally this kit should serve most people’s needs to great effect. It certainly did ours and we now keep it permanently under our bed, with the cuffs and excess straps tucked under when not in use.

Final Thoughts

Overall Mr. Peaches and I really love this restraint kit and think it’s versatile, sturdy, and affordable enough to have a wide appeal.

Both of us are honestly in shock at how cheap this kit is for the level of quality that you receive and the fact that I can give you 20% more off the code is even more mind-blowing to me. I’m literally over the moon about it and echo Mr. Peaches own words of advice.

Recommend to:

Anyone with an interest in quick and easy bondage.

Anyone who wants comfortable restraints.

Anyone who wants sturdy restraints.

Do Not Recommend to:

People who prefer a certain material.

People who prefer uncomfortable restraints.

People who prefer more advanced restraint systems.

    Hi, could I check how the discount code is supposed to be applied? The link redirects me to Amazon and I can’t apply the code in the shopping cart :)

    • Good question! I’ve asked the company and will let you know as soon as I’ve got an answer ;)
