ETQ (Everyday Tourniquet) – Snakestaff Systems



While there are other great TQ’s on the market, their size can make them awkward to carry.

The ETQ™ is compact, yet effective, making it easy to have on hand. Think of our ETQ™ as the SIG 365® of TQ’s: Both are small and designed for carry and concealment.


Carabiner windlass lock: Windlasses that are bumped and unwind in transport have proven deadly. Our patent pending locking carabiner gate holds the windlass securely in place.

Textured Windlass: If you’re using a TQ, there will be slippery blood . . . a lot of it. Our textured windlass helps you get a grip in a life and death situation.

Chemlight: The included chemlight breaks upon application so first responders can see where TQ is applied at night.

Instructions: Simplified instructions are printed right on the TQ for those that don’t have medical experience or are in shock. A scannable QR code takes you to a step-by-step video tutorial. Watch here.

Heavy-duty construction: Our product is manufactured in the U.S.A. with the utmost quality materials, making it durable and long lasting. In addition to our exhaustive testing in extreme conditions, we ran over the ETQ with a 6,500 pound dually and then immediately applied it and it still performed perfectly!

Water repellent: Unlike other TQ’s, the ETQ™ absorbs a minimal amount of water or sweat.


Folded Size: Comparable to a G19 magazine. It fits in handgun mag pouches and kydex carriers.

Note on TQ width: The ETQ™ measures 37.5” long by 1” wide. Many people believe the gold standard TQ is wider than it actually is. However, If you closely examine one you’ll see that it’s only a 1” piece of webbing doing the constricting. Try it for yourself. Constrict your TQ across a foam roller and leave it for 30 minutes. Come back and measure the imprints. You’ll notice the width only measures 1”. A 1” functional width gets the job done and has been trusted for years.

If you’d still prefer a wider tourniquet, you can purchase our ETQ WIDE™



We took the same features of our ETQ™ and incorporated them into a wider 1.5” TQ for backpacks, belts etc. It still conceals nicely in jeans and around 35% smaller than the standard TQ. The extra width helps with less possible tissue damage if the TQ needs to be left on for hours.

The ETQ Wide™ 1.5” version is designed to meet criteria set forth by the Committee of Tactical Combat Casualty Care (CoTCCC). We look forward to submitting samples to CoTCCC and continue gathering real world data for when they conduct their next round of TQ evaluations.
