        Tough Tether

        Great design. Only improvement I would like is the top snap should be larger. Tough to snap on belt loops and other points on clothing.

        Strong and Secure

        I'm trying to use it to secure my cell phone, not a rangefinder.

        The tether is well made. It doesn't come loose from either end until you release it.Read complete review

        I'm trying to use it to secure my cell phone, not a rangefinder.

        The tether is well made. It doesn't come loose from either end until you release it.

        The cable has more tension that I can use however. It could be a bit longer too. I can't use it because of these limitations.

        Seems sturdy need to get it muddy now

        By Sharpey1

        from Wisconsin

        Comments about Nikon Retractable Rangefinder Tether (Black):

        Got this for my HALO 600 rangefinder, wanted something I can release and have it out of the way, but also near by when I need in a hurry. I wear my old military TA-50 LBE when hurting and have it clipped on the off hand shoulder harness - only concern will be once I get it muddy how the grit and mud will be handled if brought back on the cable during retract - the case is plastic, so also will cover in cloth tape to cut down on the noise made from it retracting - otherwise seems to be as advertised so far

        Comments about Nikon Retractable Rangefinder Tether (Black):

        I am not using this with a rangefinder. I am using this as my everday badge holder to replace the cheap ones I normally get from work. I am suprise by the quality and the strength of the cord. I normally go through a tether about every six month and will cause me to lose my key and/or badge or both. I don't think this one will be replaced anytime soon.

                I bought this tether to hold my range finder when bow hunting. It does the job! It's very convenient while still hunting, but it does make some noise when walking. I am satisfied with it!

                    This is way better than I thought it would be. I bought one for my rangefinder and one for my binoculars. I use them for archery and they do get a lot of use.

                    There a good buy.

                                This has a strong metal cable and enough tension to support my large Sekonic light meter. Exactly what I was looking for. Nicer than those hardware store key tethers. Would be nice if it had a belt clip on the back and a removable top hook/clip.

                                  I attached this to my Nikon Monarch 800 rangefinder and hung it on my golf bag. The springloaded tether was strong enough to keep it retracted while I carried my bag.
