Tether Tools Jerkstopper Overview

  • 1Description

The JerkStopper Tethering Kit (USB Port), exclusively from Tether Tools, is the complete tethered setup that secures the cables of both your camera and computer. This kit will remove all the stress and strain placed on the cable or cord to ensure that it stays plugged in and prevents cable or equipment damage. The Camera Support connects to the holder on the camera where the wrist strap would be to provide slack to cables. The patented JerkStopper cable retention device for this particular computer support model uses a spare USB port as an anchor point by allowing slack in the cord in order to prevent damage or dislodging. This kit can be used with any standard A/C power adapter cord, flash sync cord, HDMI, USB or FireWire cable. It supports cable diameters from 3.5mm to 8.5mm.

    Tether Tools Jerkstopper Reviews

    JerkStopper Tethering Kit (USB Port) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 41.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost perfect... Great concept, but my issues with this product are as such: the side that plugs into your computer requires 2 USB ports (one for the jerk stopper & one for the cable) the MacBook Pro I currently have only has 1 USB port on each side to using this item was a little tricky. Besides the USB port issue, I wasn't crazy about the idea of anchoring a cable to my laptop. I understand it saves the cable from being pulled out but what happens if instead my computer gets pulled off a counter top? Either way, it was a good product and served it purpose. Could be designed a little better but I was happy overall.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from One Half works The camera attachment works fine and provides security against damage; however the usb port doesn't fit into my macbook pro port. :(

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much needed, Thank you This is used with a MacBook Pro & Nikon D3 & D3s. The cost of this item far exceeds the cost of replacing the mini USB port on the camera or laptop. Thank you B&H Camera and makers of JerkStopper.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth having if you tether your camera to a computer Really does prevent cables from pulling out accidently. I used one for several years now and it is just like it came out of the original package. I am updating from a usb 2.0 to a usb 3.0 Tether Tools Cable and wanted not to have to move the old set to the new cable. Just in case I need to use the usb 2.o cable again, didn't want a client waiting while I swithed over on location.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Well Who would have thought that something so simple can save the day. I had an art director trip over my BRIGHT ORANGE Tether Tools cord several times during a shoot subsequently bending some of the pins in my camera's USB port. Now when I shoot tethered, the cord frequently disconnects. Frustrating to say the least. The Jerk Stopper not only keeps the cord from moving around in the port and disconnecting while shooting, it also offers peace of mind that both my camera and laptop are safe when in the field. Inexpensive and ingenious.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well designed This little device has been well thought out and probably designed but someone who actually needed the product. Everything feels very secure and it is a relief to not have to constantly worry about checking the integrity of the cable connection in the camera. I use it with various cable-based peripherals not just the Tether Tools tethering cable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Genius I usually only get a chance to tether when I shoot events. We print out souvenir photos on the spot so being able to shoot straight into the computer and not mess with transferring photos from a memory card is huge. The only problem is the giant USB cable. Know it won't get ripped out of the camera is great.

    Hi quick question regarding this. will this work with macbook? I am only wondering because macbook's USB ports are right next to each other unlike the demo picture shown above. Will i be able to put the cable inside if its in the USB port next to the one with cable.
    Asked by: Aditya M.
    If your Mac's USB ports are right next to each other, the JerkStopper would not work for you. You would need some sort of clearance between the USB ports for this product to work properly.
