I've only seen these in one store, Moab Adventure Outfitters. Not a lot of good that does me now.

These camhooks would allow you to get through desert seams clean withough placing every ballnut in existence.

I'm going to make a couple, just to experiment with. Does anyone have one you're willing to photograph and post up? I've got an image in my mind of what they are, but I wouldn't mind glancing at them again before whipping out the dremel tool.

Are these any different from Leeper cam hooks?

They were very different. Here is a really really bad version that I just drew in paint. I colored them so you'd know which was the red and which was the blue.

Moab Adventure Outfitters made them when MOA still existed.

Those things look frightening. But if they work, I'd like to know, too.

I personally haven't seen much aid gear that isn't scary looking. Are you saying that these things are made anymore?
