This is a great little product. The price seems a little high for what it is but it works! I shoot tethered in my studio for portraits and product shots. Even though I use a bright orange 15' tether cord I still kick it stand on it and pull it getting my tripod in position. I believe I might have already damaged my camera's port so I built something out of wire so the "pull" would be on the cameras strap connection and not the connection point. My deal was unsightly, and cumbersome. and i had to undo it every day. it worked but not well. The jerk stopper works so much better than my rig. It holds the cable 98% out of 100. With an almost perfect angle to my cameras port. my design was maybe a 80%. And I would " wiggle it free or loose connection. If you shoot tethered get this. It's cheap compared to a new tether cord or sending your camera out for repair.

I don't know why I thought this was going to be just as good as a Zacuto Pincher. I shoot video on a Canon 7D and 60D and I just got a new monitor that I mount on my camera rig. I wanted to protect the mini HDMI port on my cameras, but since I haven't bought into the Zacuto products, paying over $200 for their Pincher system was way over my budget. The JerkStopper is NOT a good solution for handheld video work. The construction is cheap plastic that I find extremely flimsy. In order for the device to even work properly, you need to give some slack on the input cable -- this partially secures accidents if the HDMI cable is pulled from the monitor, but what happens if you get the slack caught on something? The JerkStopper won't help it.

I'm really worried about protecting the mini HDMI port, so I'll probably just have to spend the extra $$ on the Zacuto Pincher -- I'm sure that what I really need.

Bottom line: do not buy this product if you are using it for the mini HDMI cable AND you shoot handheld.

        A well designed product that is not camera specific, easy to fit and does exactly what it was designed to do, i.e., prevent the tether from jerking free.
        If it proves to be durable over time then it is well worth five stars, so only time will tell for me.

        After having to repair 3 separate cameras for loose USB ports due to the cable stress on the port, I bought these. Works just as described! I have them on 7 cameras that our studio uses daily. It's a little pricey if you consider what it is, but in the long run, it's much cheaper than the $ that Canon just charged me to fix the port.

          Didn't think much of this product before using it, and received it with a TetherTools cable I ordered --now I find it invaluable for tethered shooting, I feel like a fool for not having purchased one earlier. This thing looks flimsy but really holds the cable into the camera USB port very well. Haven't had a cable slip out once, or any file transfer errors since I started using it. Great product, can't recommend enough!

                I've been really frustrated with all the cable wrangling during my productions with the Canon 5D. The tether tool is a life saver. Makes me much more secure in working quickly without having to worry about breaking any HDMI connections.

                    This attachment keeps your USB cable from popping out of the camera USB terminal when shooting tethered. It works extremely well - very clever design. It is very easy to attach and very effective. I recommend it to anyone who is shooting tethered.

                                  This item holds your cable in place so there is no downward pull at the connection, keeping it tight so the cable doesn't pull out. It also will keep the fitting in good repair so it won't become loose in the future. Every camera should have one...

                                  It helps for shooting tethered. Although if you trip the cord hard enough this is not going to fix all your issues (not that you should expect it to). A little flimsy, and small parts that are easy to lose. Overall it's good.

                                    Does the job and helps prevent damage to the camera's USB interface. As others have said, it's expensive for what it is, but certainly a whole lot less than a camera repair. Several people have complained that the plastic seems too fragile and likely to break... I don't think that should be a concern.
