Re: SpiderJack cams

Mine is similar and just under a year old, is it the cam or the small spring making it not sit right, hope that makes sense

Re: SpiderJack cams

There is a small spring that sits under the part that you clip to so when you sit back into it the small spring helps push the cam to lock it of..... I think? Does that make sense, sorry for being long winded

I haven't noticed mine getting hot but maybe because I wear gloves. That spring has nothing todo with helping the cam lock off your body weight does that.

Re: SpiderJack cams

I love the Spiderjack, but they need to figure out a way to make the cams last longer. I'm going though one every month to a month and a half. I use the wood thumb brake always, and have fairly clean ropes. Yet I still burn through them.
