SOF Tactical Tourniquet [ NSN#6515-01-530-7015 ]
The SOF Tactical Tourniquet is one of the two tactical tourniquets authorized for purchase by the U.S. Army. This product proved to be 100% effective duringUSAISR testing.
The SOFTT is constructed of quality, high strength materials. The tourniquet handle is manufactured from a solid piece of aircraft aluminum and maintains its strength in the most extreme temperatures. The tri-rings are molded Acetyl (a high impact plastic). Dual locking systems guarantee that tension is maintained at all times, and the primary system has a back up of its own should it be necessary. Safety set screw prevents accidental release of pressure during tactical patient movement.
No Velcro® is used to maintain tension. This greatly reduces the chance of accidental release of the tourniquet during patient movement. The buckle performs well when dirty, muddy or sandy. Both safety screw and the buckle are factory coated with a rust preventative lubricant.
