RapidStop Tourniquet for EMS, Combat, and Training

Rapid Stop® Ratcheting Tourniquet

Easiest to use, fastest to occlusion.

The RapidStop Tourniquet relies on key technologies to provide rapid, intuitive and easy one-hand self-application that requires only gross motor control to achieve full occlusion in 11 seconds. Even faster when a responder uses both hands, the RapidStop Tourniquet achieves full occlusion reliably and rapidly to control hemorrhage for injuries to arms and legs between 7 and 33 inches in circumference.



Attach above the wound instead of over it.

  1. Single handed self-application requires only gross motor skills.
  2. Quickly secure the tourniquet above wound without dexterous routing through buckles or over injured or trapped limbs – even with gloves on.
  3. Mechanical clasp avoids hook and loop Velcro closure that can be compromised by dirt and grit.



Vastly improve time to occlusion.

  1. Large and rugged 2 Inch D-Ring is easily grasped.
  2. Does not require a stabilizing hand.
  3. Supplies a 2:1 mechanical advantage prior to ratcheting.
  4. Will not slip, does not require using your teeth to stop it from spinning around your arm.



Reliable full occlusion.

  1. A mechanical advantage of 8:1 makes it easier and quicker to achieve high compression forces.
  2. Dual latch release provides a secure hold that allows quick removal.



Fits vast majority of adult limb sizes from 7 – 33 Inches.

  1. A perfect fit on limbs from the 1st percentile of female upper arm sizes to the 99th percentile of male upper thigh sizes.
  2. 600N tensile strength is 3 times stronger than the 200N needed to fully occlude blood flow.
  3. Mil-W-17337 spec; 1.5 inch wide with 8,000N breaking strength and superior abrasion resistance.



2-step process clearly marked on the tourniquet.

  1. Step 1 indicated with stitched waterproof vinyl tags resistant to wear and tear.
  2. Step 2 indicated in large print right in the plastic of the ratchet handle.
  3. A time record label is located behind the d-ring strap below the quick clasp.



Award winning product design with patents pending.

  1. A suite of inventions position Rapid Stop Tourniquet as a market leader in speed and efficacy.
  2. MIT Soldier Design Competition awarded the RapidStop Tourniquet the most promising non-weapon tech in 2014.
  3. Made in New York, entirely of components made in the USA.

Rapid stop tourniquet

Best tourniquet on the market. Way superior to the windlass style CAT. Great service from X1, quick shipping, great product.

Thomas Donahue
Great Tourniquet

I haven't had to use this in a real emergency situation. But practicing with them I find it easier to use one-handed than other brands/types.

Applied it fully tightened in less than 5"

The chief thought it was amazing

The chief thought it was amazing esp. with the risk of potentially getting into a fire fight with somone and it be severl min before your back up arrives. But he wanted to know if you sold a carrier or if you have found a carrier that it fits in.
