From a design perspective it is really damn simple: a pair of elastic loops and a plastic board. Squeeze the holder through a few MOLLE straps, then shove a CAT (or CAT-type) tourniquet through the elastic loops and your done. How it holds up to wear-and-tear, and how easily the Tq comes out when you need it to, are questions for another time.
I was looking for something low profile to securely hold my CAT to my outer carrier moller vest. This works great, nice and snug, does stick out much and allows for quick and easy deployment of the CAT.
Fits securely in MOLLE webbing and stays put with a CAT tournequet
Nifty addition to a PC or duty belt. Can hold items other than a tourniquet, such as cable tie restraints. It holds the TQ in place very well, maybe too well even; probably because it’s brand new, it’s really tight on the TQ, making it a slight challenge to rip that TQ out when you need it, but i’m sure over time it’ll loosen up. 100% recommend.
This is one of those pieces of kit that is so rediculosly simple that it’s a no brainer to get one. Have some extra molle slots? Want to carry a TQ securely? Then get 2. One for you and one for your buddy because his TQ might get used on you.
Seems like it could take some beating.
I had my tourniquets inside my med kit like most people do, it made it difficult to get to in emergency situations. With these straps I have quick and easy access to them!
Can be a bit tough fitting something like a SOF T wide, but once in it's very secure even when running around.
Another good product from BFG. It won't make you coffee, but it will hold the crap out of your tourniquet until you (hopefully never) need it.
