As defined by Cosmo or Sykes (Joe Pantoliano and Daniel Roebuck respectively) in the 1993 movie "The Fugitive". In a conversation in the Federal building, Cosmo, Sykes and Sam Gerard (Tommy Lee Jones), the situation with Dr. Richard Kimble (Harrison Ford) is described as Hinkey, meaning that it is strange or unusual. Gerard exclaims that he does not know what that means and doesn't want them using words around him that he does not understand. Hence, if something, or someone is hinkey, it is strange and/or unusual.

hinkey chain is a type of small flat linked chain used at places like the post office to secure items like a pen or a pair of pinking shears from disappearing which would happen unless they are on a chain
at a hard ware store that sells different kinds of chain you would ask the sales clerk---my teenage children are always losing the remote control. what kind of chain can i buy to secure it fastly to the coffee table and the salesperson would say that 3 feet of their best hinkey chain would solve the problem temporarily until the children get clever and break the chain with a hammer and chisel. so sxchizzle that OK?
