CAT Tourniquet #Ari_Ale_Tools Review & Giveaway

The CAT Tourniquet with windlass can be yours or someone else's lifesaver. The #Ari_Ale_ Tools Cat Tourniquet is a great tool to have in your first aid kit, glove box, backpack or cabinet at home. This tourniquet is a tool that you will want with you in the event there is an emergency. What if medical professionals couldn't get to you right away?  The combat application tourniquet may help by controlling excessive bleeding and hemorrhaging until help arrives.



The combat application tourniquet is easy to use and you can apply it to yourself even one handed. The combat tourniquet is can be applied easily and extremely quickly and it's adjustable enough to be able to fit a larger arm or thigh. The tourniquet is made of heavy high quality materials, and it stretches and has velcro to fasten securely,



One thing I recommend that you do when you get yours is you will want practice to on others with the #Ari_Ale_Tools Cat Tourniquet, but don't forget to practice on yourself. Practice applying it to your own arm and alternate arms and do that multiple times as your wound may be on your dominant arm. It's easier to apply it to your thigh or on someone else but it could be possible that you are injured and can only do it one handed.  The last thing you would want to happen is that you are panicking because you don't know how to apply it.





The tourniquet is not for one time use so it can be used over and over. The windlass provides a simple but effective way to tighten the tourniquet. It's reinforced beveled contact bar maintains the integrity and decreases skin pinching.  The red tab on the velcro strap is for quick visual access as it can be seen clearly among your other belongings that you may have with you at the time. There is also a white label on it that allows you to write the time or even the day that the tourniquet was applied. 

How to apply one-handed:

1. Insert the wounded extremity through the loops of of the self adhering band.
2. Pull the self adhering band tight and securely fasten the band on itself.
3. Adhere the band around the are, but do not adhere the band past the windlass.
4. Twist the Windlass Rod until bright red bleeding has stopped.
5. When bleeding is controlled lock the rod with the windlass clip.
6. Adhere the band over the rod for small extremities continue adhering the band around the extremity and over the windlass rod.
7. Secure the rod and band with the strap adhering the opposite hook on the windlass. 


Your first aid kit is not complete without this handy tool the Cat Tourniquet and I highly recommend it be sure to check out the CAT Tourniquet #Ari_Ale_Tools on YouTube

I've never thought to have one of these in a first aid kit, now I definitely need one for the first aid I keep in the trunk of the car
