North American Rescue Gen 7 Combat Application Tourniquet

The patented North American Rescue 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 Tourniquet 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 CATs 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.

Features :

  • Single Routing Buckle for faster application, decreased blood loss, effective slack removal, fewer windlass turns
  • Reinforced windlass rod with increased diameter for enhanced strength and aggressive ribbing for improved grip
  • Bilateral windlass clip for rapid windlass lock and bilateral buttress for added strength
  • Reinforced stabilization plate with beveled contact bar
  • Signature red elliptical tip (Red Tip Technology®) provides visual cue during application
  • Patented free-moving internal band for true evenly distributed circumferential pressure


Genuine NAR CAT Gen 7 Tourniquets are not sold on Amazon or eBay, and they will always be $30. If you find a “deal” that seems too good to be true, I promise you, it’s fake, and it’s potentially deadly. The fakes are made with cheap plastic that breaks, stitching that rips apart, and zero interest in actually saving lives over making money. Take a look at the image below for several areas to look at to identify a real vs fake CAT TQ. 

Real Gen 7 CAT TQ Features:

  • Gray windless retention strap with “TIME:” printed on it. (Black TQ only)
  • “CAT” logo molded into both sides of the windless rod
  • “CAT” molded into the plastic of the routing buckle, one side will always be upside down
  • “CAT” logo injection molded into the back of the stabilization plate
  • Clearly visible RED curved tip
  • “CAT” logo, “COMBAT APPLICATION TOURNIQUET”, the NSN, and the lot number will be printed on the inside of the band
