Manacles are metal bands joined by a chain, used for fastening a person's hands or ankles.


Argus Filch, caretaker of Hogwarts, had manacles in his office and kept them highly polished and hung behind his desk in the hopes that he would, one day, be able to hang students from their ankles as a punishment.[1]

In 1994, Sirius Black conjured manacles out of thin air, so that he could chain Remus Lupin and Ron Weasley to Peter Pettigrew; so that Pettigrew did not escape.[2]
