Summary

This is definitely a handy tool to have around the campsite. It clips on to about anything and allows you to tie down and tighten rope without any knots! It is quick to tighten and quick to release.

Pros

  • Quick to use
  • Quick release
  • No knots required
  • Holds tight tensions
  • Lightweight

Cons

  • Plastic construction

The CamJam has become one of those products that I always have hooked on to my gear because I always want it with me when I'm camping. One thing that I cannot stand is having a knot tighten up too much much to where it's near impossible to get undone. Also, it's kind of frustrating when you have something hanging or relying on a knot and the knot comes untied. The CamJam makes cord tightening and release a breeze! I've used them for so many different things such as: 

  • clothes line
  • ridge line above hammock
  • rain tarp tension
  • truck bed tie down

The CamJam comes in handy for basically anything that you need to adjust tension on a cord for. All you do is run the cord end through the hole on the CamJam and pull it down (see video). To release the cord, you just pull the chord out of the tightening mechanism. No Knots, No Hassle!

The CamJam is made out of plastic which seems like it could wear out easily, although I have never had one to not function properly. I have had mine set up in rain, sun and cold and it seems to withstand the elements. 

I think that you will be very satisfied with this product and will be able to find many uses for it. It is one of those products that just makes life easier!

Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

Like its big brother, the CamJam Small Cord Tightener is an easy, knot-free way to tighten, tension, and secure cord around lighter loads of all kinds. We've designed the CamJam Small to thread narrower cord (from 1.8mm to 3mm in diameter) for-you guessed it-smaller jobs. With a stainless steel gated carabiner on one end and a rotating, ridged cam mechanism on the other, the CamJam Small 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.

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.
