Q:What is the jaw dimension of the carabiner end. In other words, what sized pipe could this clip on?
by|Oct 17, 2023
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Hi, I would be happy to answer your question. If you are going to clip it onto the pipe than it has an opening of about an inch. If you were to slide it over a pipe it could fit around an 1.25 inches. If you have any other questions please don't hesitate to reach out to us at info@niteize.com.

    Q:Will this work with wire rope?

    Answer This Question

    A:  I personally would not recommend using wire rope. It may work for a while it I can see It leading to failure of the CamJam system due to wear on the grip surface.

    A:  Hello GL, Thank you for your interest in the Nite Ize CamJam XT. The CamJam system is designed to work with rope or cord made from natural or synthetic fibers but not metal rope. If you have further questions, please contact customer service at info@niteize.com, or 800.678.6483 M-F 8-5PM MST.

    by|Sep 16, 2019

      A:  The device works by clamping down on the rope. Given the rigidity of cable, the grasp would not be as strong and I think you'd get slippage under tension.

      by|May 14, 2020

      A:  Don't know. Used with nylon rope.

      by|Jul 24, 2020

      A:  I have never used it with wire rope not as flexible as rope and I am not sure it would hold it guess it depends how long you expect it to hold and if its vinyl coated. I would use turn buckles and saddle clamps

      Q:Will this work with 550 Para Cord?
      by|Jul 18, 2017

      Answer This Question

      A:  Nite Ize makes a smaller version that works great with paracord

      by|May 4, 2023

      A:  It depends on the thickness. I used it once we were setup (camping) to run a 1/4 rope from one tree to another for my 100lb puppy and it held her. Shes no light weight.

      by|May 6, 2023

        A:  Yes.

        by|May 5, 2023

          A:  Absolutely! I have a supply of camjams and 550 in my bug out bag

          by|May 4, 2023

          A:  I use 550 paracord with it and it works perfectly.

            Q:Will this work with a 1/8" chord

            5 Answers
            Answer This Question

            A:  That might be a bit small.

            by|May 12, 2020

            A:  This size (3.8) is too big in my opinion but it might do in a pinch

            by|May 4, 2023

            A:  Yes, it will fit 1/8" to 3/8" solid poly-braided cords.

            by|May 4, 2023

            A:  Craig - yes it does. The package specifies 1/8" - 3/8" diameter rope, preferably "solid braided rope", and I personally tried it with 1/8 rope and it does fine.

            by|May 30, 2017

            A:  I have only used so far a 1/4 " So far I would test it tie it to a sturdy branch and hold on a few inches off the ground.

              See my carabiner posting. This is the other part of a DIY tie down strap. Works well the the 1/4" rope.

              Used these to secure one side of a shade sail over a driveway which needed to be easy to drop in case of high winds and for leaf removal. Good quality and very easy to operate. Didn't need turnbuckles for tensioning. Returned to Home Depot to get a couple more for additional shades but sold out.

              handy gaget
              I love carabiners and this one has come in handy for several things. It clips to my belt loop so keeping it close at hand to use was great. Working load is 500 lbs and it fits 1/8-3/8 inch rope. I had to extend the height of my garden fence. I used this to haul the fence up while I wired it to poles it held this small twine while I got the fence done. Used 4 of these to keep a tarp in place and it takes seconds to put on and off. If you want to save time and make sure your things are secure get these

              It works but be warned!
              The Cam Jam XT , rope tightener is easy to use and tightens ropes as advertised. It has a working load of 500 lbs . Made of aluminum with a breaking strength of 1500 lbs. set up is easy slipping the rope through the back , to the front and through the cam . It works better with smaller ropes than larger and is made for 3/8 max down to 1/8 inch. I found using 3/8 it being harder to slip thru the cam and by putting high pressure it would slip thru the cam more than not. The packing claims no knots but if you look at the back packing picture examples they want you to make a simple knot so the rope can't slip out. They also recommend solid braided rope which I did find to work Better. The Kicker, make sure you open the folded packing and read the Important instructions which is a warning. It reads NOT FOR USE WHERE DISENGAGEMENT COULD RESULT IN BODLY INJURY OR PROPERTY DAMAGE. NOT FOR CLIMBING I can understand not for climbing but can't figure out how this product could be used without ignoring the warning . This is the reason I am not recommending this product as it really isnt a fail safe way to secure things.

              Brilliant bit of kit
              I use mine for tightening ridge lines for my tarp when wild camping.... prefer it to doing a truckers hitch. It just feels well made and is lovely and tactile to hold.
