Press Release and Reviews for R.A.T.S. Tourniquet

Surefire Combat Tactics Magazine

We were shown in Surefire Combat Tactics Magazine Fall 2013, page 10. Great points were made that the speed of R.A.T.S. tourniquet equal life when dealing with blood loss, it can be applied with one hand and it’s inexpensive. Read what they have to say in this press piece below.

“The carnage and trauma that resulted from the Boston Marathon bombings showed that a tourniquet doesn’t just save lives and limbs on the battlefield. RATS is a fast, simple, inexpensive, livesaving tool that any first-responder should have at his or her disposal to halt the loss of blood. Its simple design, which utilizes successive wraps to achieve the right width for good compression, makes RATS faster than a standard-issue tourniquet, and speed equates to life when dealing with blood loss. It can even be applied with one hand. At a price of only $12.95, available from Blackheart International and other online suppliers, is there a good reason not to have on in your medical kit? See it at praetorianinnovations.com.”

“The RATS Tourniquet Belt wears and functions like a regular tactical belt, first-line belt, or pistol belt but is a fully functional tourniquet when needed. It can be safely and effectively applied to either an arm or leg to control major life-threatening hemorrhaging. Constructed of 1.5″ nylon and paired with cobra buckle, this is the belt you should be wearing when you leave the house in the morning. US PAT. 8343182. $99 at ratstourniquet.com.”

This review makes great points as to how there are better ways to saving lives like using the R.A.T.S. Tourniquet. Please visit the loadout room for the full press review.

“Designed by a Special Forces medic, The Rapid Application Tourniquet (RAT) is truly as simple of a design as we have seen. It is ideal for not only self aid on the battlefield but also on the hiking trail, vehicle first aid kit or any other place where a severe injury could occur. One of the best aspects of the RAT is that you don’t have to have be a special operations medic to master it in minutes. The RAT has been utilized by military forces for roughly half a decade with great success. ”

This was a short review done by Steve Coulston. Read the full article at Guns & Tactics.

“This is an extremely quick and effective tool to stop excessive bleeding on the arms or legs.  He took the time to demonstrate the tourniquet, which is basically a ½” inch bungee cord that is attached to a metal cleat. The cord is wrapped tightly above the wound and secured in the cleat providing enough pressure to slow or stop the bleeding. It can also be carried in a special belt, holster or sling so it is always accessible. Genius. ”

“Designed by Jeff Kirkham, who has extensive trauma training, The Rapid Application Tourniquet (RAT) is truly as simple of a design as we have seen. It is ideal for not only self aid on the battlefield but also on the hiking trail, vehicle first aid kit or any other place where a severe injury could occur. One of the best aspects of the RAT is that you don’t have to be a special operations medic to master it in minutes.
