The North American Rescue 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 CAT®’s 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.

  • Single Routing Buckle for faster application, decreased blood loss, effective slack removal, fewer windlass turns, and simplified training with single protocol application standards

  • 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

  • Enhanced windlass strap changed to tactical gray and sonic welded to clip for constant contact providing safe windlass security and a place to document the application time

  • 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

  • Open Length: 37.5 in.
