  • CamJam threads narrower cord (from 1.8 - 3mm in diameter) for, you guessed it, smaller jobs
  • With a stainless-steel gated carabiner on 1 end, and a rotating, ridged cam mechanism on the other, the CamJam can be anchored to any hook, D-ring or loop
  • Feed the cord through the hole and pull it downward through the cam to adjust to the desired tension
  • Let go, and it locks into place and stays that way until you release it by pulling the cord upward out of the cam, or by rotating the cam open
  • Easy to adjust, the Nite Ize CamJam Cord Tightener offers 2 versatile systems of use, and can be used and reused hundreds of times
  • Clipped to rings and hooks, it's excellent for hanging and securing banners, lanterns, tarps and tent guyline
  • Or, create a loop by clipping it to 1 end of the cord and pulling the other end through; perfect for bundling light gear, extension cords, cut brush, or groceries to a bike
  • Small size 2-pack includes one 12 ft. section of highly reflective cord
  • Regular size 2-pack includes two 8 ft. sections of 5/32 in. rope

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for a quick fix I actually bought this to repair/reinforce the handle of a suitcase, and it's worked amazingly well, easily making it through my recent vacation, complete with two condo changes and a few flights. I clipped the cord tightening clips into the existing D rings of the broken handle and cobra knotted around the torn, busted leather handle. I then make simple, quick knots for the ends and melted them together a bit with a lighter, as I was skeptical of the pinch/adjusting wheel - but the pinch lock wound up holding just fine. All in all, highly recommend - super versatile even for more outside-the-box projects - and definitely extended the life of my luggage.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Clever Design as Usual, but Why Use Any Plastic? Well, I'm a proponent of using knots instead of such things, but Nite Ize makes such clever devices, I just wind up buying them. I bought the small size. While my use would only be for ridge lines, I just decided I couldn't trust the plastic lock wheel. I also am disappointed in their newer plastic small Figure 9's - I prefer the metal ones. Plastic for weight, Ok, sure, but for parts under stress or that have to hold by friction? I just can't see plastic as durable enough here. If the device was entirely metal I'd have kept it long enough to give it a good test, but I returned it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Needs more development These are a good idea but they don't quite deliver. I think they could be improved with one easy tweak: make the teeth on the cam a bit deeper. If you use these be aware that they work better with the supplied cord, which is softer than standard para cord. I couldn't get them to grip on para cord.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No knots to tie with your 550 cord. Great product and it comes in plastic or aluminum. I bought the plastic because for heavier loads, I have other devices for tying down. These you simply thread through, take out the slack, tighten down on your load and you're done. Loosening them is simple too. I like them!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Plastic = No Durability I was excited to utilized these as tie downs for my canopy, but the quality wasn't there. The cam stuck in the open position multiple times, and I had to manually close it. Even so, the supplied rope would not stay secure and tight. I took these back for a refund

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great idea, great execution Yes, purists tie knots. And yes, I know how to tie the knots. BUT for quick setup and ease of use you can't beat these for guy lines, tarp ridge lines, etc. Fantastic!
