Nikon® Rangefinder Tether
does what it says it does
Seems to work pretty well. Cord seems durable as the rangefinder i had it attached to got caught on a backpack and pulled on it sharply. The cord and unit held up just fine. The only little thing i don't like is the fact that the plastic pieces at the end, where you connect it to whatever your planning to retract sometimes clank together and makes a little bit of noise. Other than that, I like it alot.

Not Practical in the Field
I was recently on S.Texas hunt to find out that this item was very noisy. I was hunting out a doublebull blind (T2). It was well brushed in. I was downwind of where I had seen nearly 15 does the previous morning and when they came out, I pulled on this item to get a range before I was going to make my shot...and it made a noise that spooked the does out of there. I wouldnt recommend this item because it is noisy. Its not really noisy..but just enough to possibly blow your hunt!

This is a very good piece of equipment for securing high dollar items. I have one on my GPS and am preparing to put one on my range finder. So far it has held up throughout the scouting season and is the perfect length to have secured around chest/waste belt. The only draw back I found was the larger split ring does not accomodate all equipment tether points. I found this with my current range finder where the split ring is too large to fit the small opening allowed for such use. However, this is easily fixed by purchasing a smaller split wring for the tether or to add to the tether point on specific items that have the same problem.
