Check your kits and make sure you don't have fake CAT TQs. Know how to the difference.
Ok folks feel free if you need further info or if you want the pics your group. There have been a lot of fake CAT TQs showing up. This is a real problem because they have been failing. That is right, and some have paid with their live becuase someone took a short cut and didnt check what they were buying. Make sure the vender is an authorized one that sells your TQ of choice. I am going to tell you a word of advice. It is better to have a TQ you can put on with one hand and know 100% it is going to do the job in 15-30 sec. That being said I will only speak up for a few TQs that do the job as in tended. You have the SOFT-T and SOFT-T Wide (not a one handed appication TQ), CAT (Is a one handed applicaion TQ), and the new Tactical Medical Tourniquet (Is a one handed application TQ).
It's best to double check your utilities and equipment. You don't know if you're going to need it some day. It might also be saving your life in the future. We should be able to double check our stuff and identify legit from fake. This is a really informative post and I hope to read more helpful guidelines from you.
