Product Information

When we have heavy loads to bear, keeping them secure and exactly where we want them is critical. The CamJam Tie Down Strap, features an elegant design & high quality materials. It was built for functionality, ease of use, and ultra-security for your heavy loads. The CamJam Tie Down features a high density weave polypropylene 1" wide strap that is securely attached, with 4 bar tack stitches for high strength, to a sturdy, cast zinc alloy cam mechanism. The non-slip buckle on the cam mechanism not only latches securely, it also provides the ability to gradually release even under high tension, eliminating sudden and dangerous unloading. The CamJam Tie Down can be used in many versatile configurations, including a Loop Configuration and Lockout Configuration. The webbing strap features an angled end for easy threading and intuitive operation in any configuration. All totaled, the detailed features and innovative design of the CamJam Tie Down Strap allows you to confidently secure loads such as - kayaks, surfboards, paddleboards, motorcycles, equipment, lumber, furniture, and appliances - easily, securely, and safely.

Primary Configurations:

Loop Configuration: This fixed size loop configuration can be created when the free end of the webbing is constrained by the CamJam mechanism creating a loop to secure your load. This configuration is the basic and primary configuration and is similar to those produced by other general purpose cam-lock devices.

Lockout Configuration: The Lockout configuration extends the utility of the loop configuration by enabling the selective positioning of the CamJam mechanism along the webbing loop. Most other general purpose cam-lock devices are incapable of creating this type of configuration. The lockout configuration also allows the device to be anchored to a location without requiring the engagement of the CamJam mechanism. For example, the lockout configuration enables the strap assembly to be positioned and secured to a vehicle roof rack prior to and irrespective of securing objects onto the rack. It prevents the inadvertent movement or sliding of the strap assembly while arranging objects on the rack, or while tensioning the strap. This configuration enables locking tension to be applied to the webbing with up to a 3-to-1 mechanical tensioning advantage. This feature is similar to, and within the working load levels induced by ratchet type devices. For example, drawing webbing through the device with an applied force of 100 lbs can induce up to 300 lbs of tension in the secured webbing. General purpose cam-lock devices lack this feature and typically are limited to tensioning capabilities far less than even a 2-to-1 mechanical tensioning advantage.

Product Details

  • Heavy duty tie down straps available in 3 sizes - 6', 12', and 18' | 1.83m, 3.66m, and 5.48m
  • High strength 1" | 2.54cm wide waterproof, high density weave, polypropylene webbing
  • Sewn-in, color coded & numerically labeled tags allows for easy identification of strap length

As an avid traveler and adventurer, there are few times in life I am not constantly searching for a way to secure odd gear to vehicles of some sort. My last research trip to Baja was no different.

Anyone who knows the dirt roads of Baja, Mexico knows that they are no joke, arguably some of the worst and most bumpy roads in existence. While towing my inflatable boat down there this year, I was noticing all the ratchet straps were constantly coming loose and the boat bouncing around on the trailer, to the point it was causing damage. I had to pull over every several miles to re-tighten my high quality, high strength ratchet straps. After about the umpteenth time stopping to adjust the straps and boat I was so flustered, that standing in my boxers in the oppressive heat I ripped all the ratchet straps off the boat and engine and opened up a brand new box of 18ft Cam Jam Tie down straps. The cam jams are a fraction the size of the ratchet straps, so I was weary, however it seemed like anything would be a better fit than the expensive ratchet straps I was using. I quickly worked to secure the boat and outboard with the new straps, tightened everything down and hopped back in the car. Constantly watching my rear view mirror as I was expecting things to loosen, I drove straight for the next 6hrs over the worst of the bumps until arriving at our final destination! The Nite Ize cam Jams not only saved me time, but their no-slip strong hold and high utensil strength ensured my boat arrived safely and I was able to conduct the whale shark research I had set out to do! Now 2 full sets of Cam Jams live on my inflatable at all times!

    Buckle is both effective and well-made. Webbing feeds and slides through easily, even in the more complicated 'lockout' configuration. Nicely finished.

      This 1" Webbing CamJam is the best looking and functioning webbing fastening I have found.

        My main tie down was a ratchet set.The CAMJAM was used as a secondary tie down on 09 ultra classic, simple to attach and held never slipped during trip from my home near Atlanta to Darlington ,SC. My Hog was secured even in the rain ,highly recommend ,great buy.
