Still Using Rubber Bands? Time to step up your game!
The Direct Action Tourniquet Holder is our take on the elastic tourniquet holder.
We designed the tourniquet holder to be multi-functional, enabling you to mount it via MOLLE or on a Belt via the slide through. It will fit the CAT, SOF TQ, SOFTT-W, and other similarly sized tourniquets + it has an elastic slot for a Sharpie, Decompression Needle, or small glow stick.
Retention is just right, allowing the tourniquet to pull out smoothly when needed and stay in place during all movement. While most leave the elastic exposed to UV Rays we keep it protected with our Laser Cut & Engraved Laminate Shield.
Best of all, it is made right here by us at our shop in Boise, ID out of durable Cordura Laminate which is Made in the USA from USA-made materials!
- Holds 1 CAT, SOF TQ, SOFTT-W, or other similarly sized tourniquet.
- Mounts to MOLLE via Included TacTie
- Mounts to thin Belts up to 1.5" Horizontally using slide through, or Vertically on belts up to 2" using included TacTie.
- Made of USA Made Cordura Laminate & Elastic.
- Stitched for rugged durability.
Purchase the Gen 7 C-A-T® here.
The patented C-A-T® 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 Gen 7 CAT 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 CAT’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.
