CAT Combat Application Tourniquet - GEN7 Black
North American Rescue Patented Generation 7 CAT Tourniquet NSN# 6515-01-521-7976. The Combat Application Tourniquet (C-A-T) Generation 7 is a true one-handed tourniquet proven to be 100% effective by the U.S. Army’s Institute of Surgical Research. Tests proved that the CAT completely occluded blood flow of an extremity in the event of a traumatic wound with significant hemorrhage.
The CAT tourniquet utilizes a durable windlass system with a patented free-moving internal band providing true circumferential pressure to the extremity. Once adequately tightened, bleeding will cease and the windlass is locked into place. A hook and loop windlass retention strap is then applied, securing the windlass to maintain pressure during casualty evacuation. The C-A-T’s unique dual securing system avoids the use of screws and clips which can become difficult to operate under survival stress or where fine motor skills are compromised.
The patented Combat Application Tourniquet® (C-A-T) featuring the proprietary red tip design and the mechanical advantage of a band within a band has been the Official Tourniquet of the U.S. Army since 2005. The innovations in the CAT are protected by U.S. Patent Nos. 7,842,067 and 7,892,253.

I bought 10 of these to replenish my platoon's ancient tourniquets . These tourniquets are great and the price on the site here is amazing. The only thing i wish it had was the date of mfg on the tourniquet like it used to have. The good news is that you can email CAT customer service and they can give you the MFG date with their lot number.
Eventhough I haven't needed it. Costumer service Folks where a big help, and it was shipped very quickly. I also purchased more items and recieved them today. Thank you.
There was a package handling issue with UPS but live action safety had it resolved extremely fast. 100% Satisfied!
I did a lot of research on this tourniquet, which is why I selected it. Not only is it of superior quality, but it is easy to use and fits well in a typical IFAK (Individual First Aid Kit). I would recommend this to anyone who has a first aid kit of any kind. In fact, most protocols recommend that you carry two, and at the price, that’s easy to do.
Arrived fast and perfect condition
