North American Rescue (NAR) Generation 6 Combat Application Tourniquet.  The C-A-T 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 C-A-T'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.

The patented C-A-T® is a true one-handed tourniquet proven to be 100% effective by the U.S. Army's Institute of Surgical Research. In 2005, the Combat Application Tourniquet® was selected as one of the Army's top 10 greatest inventions and is recognized as one of the foremost advancements in prehospital care during the Global War on Terror with an estimated 1,850 lives saved.

This is a Lot of 4 North American Rescue Generation 6 Combat Application Tourniquets (CAT) with Red Tip.  These were in the original packaging, which had gotten worn and dirty, allowing dust into the packaging.  The plastic was removed, they were blown off with 150 psi air, new directions added, and repackaged.  Some of the Red Tips may have blemishes, which will not blow off with air.  This particular generation of CAT had a red logo stamped onto the plastic wrap, which on some tourniquets bled off onto the white windlass strap.  On some tourniquets you will notice the red on the white strap.  THIS IS NOT FROM PREVIOUS USE.  Again, this is from the NAR packaging.  The pictures closely depict the condition of the Lot of 4 you shall receive.  The last two pictures depict the types of blemishes most often found in these tourniquets, which are discrepancies to the RED TIP and red staining to the white windlass strap.  Dates of tourniquets purchased may or may not be similar to the dates depicted in the pictures.
