Get to Know: JerkStopper Camera Support

The JerkStopper Camera Support is a Tether Tools classic and one of our most popular and favorite products. Removing stress and strain, the tool secures the cable on your camera by providing an anchor point to prevent unwanted dislodging and damage to your port.

While having a disconnected cable can stop a tethered shoot, damage to your port requires you to ship your camera to the manufacturer for repairs that can take months and cost hundreds if not thousands of dollars.

“I’m big on keeping a shoot moving, and having my tethered cable fall out of my camera throws me off. I haven’t experienced that problem since I discovered Tether Tools. Now the JerkStopper goes everywhere and you won’t catch me shooting without it.” – Tether Tools Pro Peter Hurley

The patented JerkStopper cable retention device provides an anchor point allowing slack in the cord preventing damage or dislodging. Connecting the JerkStopper is easy and once installed, the included quick disconnect enables future tethering set-up in seconds. When connecting, be sure to connect the JerkStopper several inches down the cable, allowing enough slack that all stress is removed off the port and an anchor point is successfully achieved with the JerkStopper. After you’re done shooting, keep one end on your camera and the other end on your cable using the quick disconnect.

Use the JerkStopper with any standard A/C power adapter cord, sync cord, USB, HDMI or FireWire cable. Supports cable diameters from 3.5mm to 8.5mm.
