The SOF® Tactical Tourniquet is comprised of high-strength, lightweight alloy components. Its design allows the tourniquet to slide over a limb or, if the limb is trapped, the tourniquet can be rapidly disconnected and reconnected around the limb without rethreading the strap. With one application method for both the arm and the leg, the SOF® Tactical Tourniquet is the easiest tourniquet to operate under stress, which can lead to reduced levels of blood loss.
The tourniquet features:
- a 1.5" tourniquet strap, providing a wide compression pattern resulting in additional arterial compression and increased patient comfort.
- a Retention Clip that helps to secure the windlass by locking it in place once the tourniquet has been applied. This is especially helpful for one-handed applications.
- a 5.5" Windlass that eases the process of securing the windlass into the clip and tri-ring.
- a Quick-Compression Buckle, which allows for easier one-handed application and overall faster application time.
Additionally, each tourniquet is shipped with two UV-resistant black rubber bands for mounting to your individual equipment.
