Separatist binders

Separatist binders.

Binders were a basic set of cuffs used to restrict the movement of a captive's limbs. The thin but unbreakable cuffs were commonly used to bind a prisoner's hands, but could also be used to bind both feet, or one arm and one leg to further immobilize a captive.

The Geonosians used binders on their prisoners in their gladiatorial arenas on Geonosis. These binders had pulse lock points that welded the clasps tight. They also featured an electronic release mechanism. Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker and Padmé Amidala were fitted with such binders for their scheduled execution in the Petranaki arena, but were able to defeat their captives and executioners. The Confederacy of Independent Systems also made use of binders, replete with duranium cinch-locks.

Binders were used aboard the first Death Star to restrain dangerous prisoners. Han Solo fitted Chewbacca with a pair of binders when he and Luke Skywalker posed as stormtroopers in their attempt to rescue Leia Organa. The binders were not locked, allowing the Wookiee to "break free" and aid his companions in the firefight that followed.
