The CamJam XT Large Aluminum Rope Tightener features Nite Ize signature knot-free CamJam tightening and tensioning technology. Designed for heavy-duty items and bundles and built from durable cast aluminum, this rugged combination of a carabiner and cam mechanism can tighten, tension, connect, and secure serious loads up to 500 lbs.  Ideal for guying tents, tarps, vertical antennas, masts, and antenna supports!

The CamJam XT integrates a carabiner clip and gate on one end, and a rotating cam mechanism on the other. This intuitive design allows the CamJam XT to be configured in either a Fixed End or a Loop System to securely tie down large equipment, gear, and other heavy loads. In both systems, the CamJam XT can be easily adjusted and re-adjusted time and time again to tackle a multitude of tie-down projects over the years.

To release the cam: Simply rotate the cam lock lever and pull your rope upward.
