Allowing you to easily secure heavy loads, the Nite Ize CamJam XT aluminum cord tightener tightens, tensions and connects with the simple pull of your cord through the cam mechanism—no knots required.


  • Can be easily adjusted and readjusted time and again to tackle a multitude of tie-down projects over the years
  • Includes 10 feet of paracord; compatible with cords and rope from 1/16 to 3/16 in. (2 to 5 mm) in diameter
  • A carabiner clip and gate on one end and a rotating cam mechanism on the other allow CamJam XT to be configured in either a fixed-end or loop system
  • For fixed-end systems, simply anchor the carabiner to any hook, D-ring or loop, and feed the cord or rope through the cam until you've reached the desired level of tension
  • Next, pull the cord firmly and the cam locks into place and stays that way until you release it
  • For loop system, tie a knot to create a loop in one end of your rope or cord, clip the CamJam XT into that loop, then pull the other end or rope through the cam mechanism
  • To release the cam, simply rotate the cam lock lever and pull your rope or cord upward
  • Made of durable cast aluminum
  • CamJam XT load limit: 280 lbs. (127 kg); break strength: 837 lbs. (380 kg)
