Do NOT apply a tourniquet on the head or neck, NOT over joints or broken bones and NOT on lower section of arm or leg as there are two bones there and it will not be effective.
Most people know that almost any strap, belt, cloth strip can be used as a tourniquet, but unless it is placed in the correct place it will not stop bleeding.
