Urine Cuffs, Roll-On, Apollo 11, with Storage Pouch
This small bag with Velcro closure contains six latex cuffs stowed for use on the Apollo 11 mission in July 1969. The pouch was assigned to command module pilot Michael Collins, but they were never used. The cuffs were part of the urine collection systems used both on the Apollo spacecraft and while astronauts wore their spacesuits for lunar exploration. In each instance, the cuffs provided a sanitary link between the astronaut and the urine collection devices.
