The CamJam Cord Tightener features the strong plastic body of a carabiner combined with a locking cam mechanism that makes it a knot-free way to tighten, tension, and secure light loads when paired with a cord.

Product Information

Designed to lock securely into place with a simple pull of a cord, the Nite Ize CamJam is an easy, knot-free way to tighten, tension, and secure lighter loads of all kinds. Made of sturdy, durable plastic, it features a carabiner clip with a stainless steel gate on one end, and a rotating, ridged cam mechanism on the other. Simply anchor the carabiner to any hook, D-ring, or loop, and feed your cord through the cam until you've reached the desired level of tension. Pull firmly, and the cam locks into place and stays that way until you release it by rotating the cam. Easy to adjust and readjust, the CamJam is made to use and reuse hundreds of times, in hundreds of ways. Clipped to rings and hooks, it's excellent for hanging and securing tarps, tents, blinds, gear (perfect for bear bags!). Create a loop by clipping it to one end of the cord and pulling the other end through to bundle sleeping bags, blankets, cut brush, or wrap light loads to wheelbarrows, wagons, dollies, bikes, and boats.

These things worked great for my beach tarp even in strong winds it held tight. Easy to work with also would recommend them to anyone .

    I purchased several of these to use with lengths of Paracord to secure items in the rear of my SUV. Rather than using bungee cords which always seemed too long or too short I hook these into the tie-down loops in the back of my vehicle and just pull the end of the Paracord to tighten. They work well. My only suggestion for improvement would be to add a protrusion to the movable portion to make release easier.

      I have a couple and really like the quality of build, and the way it works. Good to see that people are importing technology ideas from sailing hardware. Now we need to see how durable they are so I can upgrade to a 5
