The SB BRACE SwiftTQ carrier is a solution to carrying a variety of tourniquets (TQ) inside the pocket of the current generation of the SBM4 brace. The tourniquet is supported by 5" MIL-W-5664 wide webbing elastic which provides a firm hold. Scuba webbing serves as the foundation and all is held in place with a 2" nylon strap secured with hook and loop. The "bump" deployment system partially ejects the tourniquet allowing one handed ambidextrous extraction. The carrier can be set up to eject the tourniquet out either end but ideally out the rear. Tourniquets should be staged that no protrusions on the tourniquet interfere with its extraction and the mounting strap should not be over tightened.
We recommend compactly flat folding all tourniquets in order to offer the lowest profile with the cleanest deployment. Instruction for staging, flat folding and the proper use of most tourniquets can be found through various resources online.
The SwiftTQ is perfectly suited to the SOF-TT-Wide and will work with various generations of the with CATs. CAT tourniquets work best when folded into the windless catch in order to keep it as low pro as possible. We recommend folding your TQ to the approx length of the windless bar (generally 5.5-6"). Remember, there is no substitute for proper training and practice.
The SwiftTQ is sold as a carrier only and does not include a tourniquet.
