How We Selected the Best Over Door Restraints
As our readers have surely become accustomed to, we’ve used the same rigorous review process we use on all of our other product recommendation articles when selecting these over door restraints.
Factoring in pricing, value-for-money, functionality, ease-of-use, materials used, product quality, and a few other variables, we went through all of the available options and eliminated the inferior products. After completing this process, we were left with the six over door restraints you see below!
When it comes to BDSM equipment, it’s important to buy something that will not only last for a long time, but that’s also built well. This is especially important if the equipment in question is intended to hold any weight!
Most of the selections below aren’t designed to support a person, but we still thought this was important to mention.
Finding the Right Type of Over-The-Door Restraints for You
There are a few different factors you should consider when trying to find the perfect set of over door restraints. We suggest starting with your intended use. Will you need something heavy-duty, or are you going to prioritize visual design over durability?
Figuring this first step out will help you limit your options to the best-suited materials for the job. From there, you can start considering the actual design of the restraints. Do you need something that can restrain both your wrists and your ankles, or will a simple handcuff design suffice?
Keep these things in mind when looking at the options below!
What Are Over Door Restraints?
Over door restraints are a type of BDSM restraint that is designed to be mounted to a door. These restraints typically include—at minimum—cuffs for the wrists, but some more elaborate designs may include ankle restraints as well.

The 6 Best over door restraints in Test
Faux Snakeskin Over-the-Door Cuffs
First on our list of over door restraints are the door jam cuffs from Bondage Boutique!
Made of faux snakeskin, these bondage door restraints are completely adjustable (both straps & cuffs) and easy to use. Like many other door restraints, they use a barbell design to secure the door restraints.
If you’re trying to find a simple door bondage set for on-demand doorway bondage action, this simple solution from Bondage Boutique should do the trick!
At less than $50, we think these over the door cuffs are a steal! In general, over the door bondage is fairly easy to do, but adjustability (or rather, a lack of) is the main issue you’re likely to run into. Fortunately, since both the cuffs and the strap are adjustable, you won’t have that issue with these over the door handcuffs.
The faux snakeskin may not be for everything, but it does offer nice visuals. The buckles on the cuffs pair nicely with the red faux snakeskin, although the black straps of the over the door restraints do look a bit cheap next to them.
Minor visual gripes aside, this set of restraints is definitely one we’d recommend. If you’ve never tried over the door restraints before and aren’t quite sure what to get, we think these would be an excellent option!
Scandal Over The Door Cuffs
If you’re looking for a budget-friendly set of over the door cuffs, you need look no further than this set from CalExotics!
This affordable over the door bondage set comes with two wrist cuffs, a strap, and a bar hook. The cuffs can be detached from the strap for separate use.
Although this definitely isn’t the best-looking set around, functionality is a bit more important. Fortunately, where it may be lacking in looks it more than makes up for in usability!
These over door restraints aren’t anything special, but they don’t try to be either. They’re functional, which is the main thing that matters.
The setup actually comes in two parts: the strap/bar hook and the over the door handcuffs themselves. Because of this design, the cuffs can be detached and used separately, which is a nice touch.
Everything is adjustable, from the velcro-held cuffs to the bar hook strap. If you’re looking for a simple solution for when-the-mood-arises bondage play, these cuffs offer a budget-friendly option!
Purple Reins Over-the-Door Restraint
You have plenty of options when looking for beginner-friendly over door restraints, but we think these door jam cuffs are particularly noteworthy!
The strap that goes to the wooden bar is length-adjustable; the cuffs themselves are easily secured with Velcro. Getting the restraint in place takes only a few seconds, which means you can stay “in the mood” while getting the cuffs set up.
Simplistic in design but effective in practice, the Purple Reins Over-the-Door Restraint is a great way to start experimenting with door bondage!
As they’re designed for beginners, these over the door cuffs are very simplistic. While the velcro used to secure the cuffs likely won’t restrain someone whose truly trying to escape, it should be more than sufficient for regular over the door bondage play.
One nice feature about these over the door handcuffs is that the cuffs themselves can be detached from the wooden door bar, allowing you to use them as standalone wrist or ankle cuffs.
These over the door restraints aren’t strong enough to support a person’s weight, but considering most of these restraints aren’t designed to do that, we can’t really hold this shortcoming against it.
Overall, we’d recommend these cuffs to someone who likes—or at least doesn’t mind—the color purple and wants an easy way to experiment with door frame bondage!
Black & White Door Restraint Kit
So far, all of the over the door cuffs we’ve looked at have been focused purely on securing your wrists. But what if you want something more than just wrist cuffs? Enter the Black & White Door Restraint Kit!
Not only does this kit include over the door handcuffs, but it includes ankle cuffs as well. Each cuff is an individual piece, which makes it easy to secure one limb at a time.
Thanks to the separated design of these under and over the door restraints, you can easily secure your partner in whatever manner you feel like.
Whether you want them facing toward you or with their face buried in the door, this over the door bondage has you covered!
This set of over door restraints has its pros and cons. The pros include the completely adjustable and separate design, which obviously makes it very easy to restrain your partner exactly how you want to. There’s also the low price, which makes these bondage door restraints even more attractive.
Alternatively, there are a few downsides to the product itself. Like most other door restraints, these door jam cuffs aren’t designed for suspension. However, the main downside is the fact that this kit uses acrylic tubes—rather than wooden ones—to secure the straps. Functionally, this still works: it just seems a bit lower quality.
Still, it’s hard to beat the value for the price. Offering four restraints for the price of two, we think this kit is an amazing option for anyone who wants to get into four-limb doorway bondage on a budget!
Over the Door Cross Restraint Kit
These over door restraints are unlike anything else on this list: they secure your sub to the door using massive straps placed in an “X”!
Each of these four straps is linked together in the middle; they stretch out to the four door barbells.
Attached midpoint on the straps are the door jam cuffs, which can be easily detached using the buckles. More secure than the alternatives but still easy to set up, this kit is the perfect all-in-one door bondage solution!
Since there is really only one issue you’re likely to run into when using this door bondage kit, we’ll mention it first. Essentially, when detaching your partner from the cuffs, you’ll want to make sure to undo their ankles first. If not, they could lose their balance, fall, and hurt themselves!
We can’t really hold this against these door jam cuffs (as this could happen with other cuffs as well), but we thought it was worth mentioning. Outside of that, there’s really nothing to complain about with these cuffs!
Completely adjustable, very secure, and easy to install/uninstall, we think the DOMINIX Deluxe Over the Door Cross Position Restraint Kit is a great way to get a complete setup in a single purchase.
Door Jam Cuffs
Last on our list is this set of door jam cuffs from Sportsheets. Rather than having both cuffs attached to a single barbell (like most of the other over door restraints), these cuffs each have their own strap and barbell.
This design—when paired with the adjustable straps on each cuff-means the person wearing the cuffs will be fairly comfortable (or, at least, as comfortable as you want them to be!).
Priced to sell and easy to use, these bondage door restraints are a budget & beginner-friendly option!
These over the door cuffs are relatively plain. The biggest difference between them and most other over the door handcuffs is the fact that each cuff has its own strap and barbell. Beyond that, they’re nearly identical to the other options.
The barbells on these cuffs are plastic, which shouldn’t be much of an issue (as they’re not intended to support weight). However, it does mean that these over the door restraints lack the more premium feeling of wooden barbells.
Still, that’s a very minor complaint. Overall, these cuffs are a simple and convenient solution for over the door bondage on the go. If you have $30 and want to experiment, these are an excellent option!
