Tension up for the best sleep

The ever-present problem with camp stretchers is how to tension the bed surface without adding bulky cross bars or braces.

Helinox's unique 'lever lock' tensioning system solves this problem without adding extra weight. 

  • One side of each leg features a pivoting lever.
  • The top side of each lever engages with the side frame of the stretcher.
  • The lever is then compressed and locked into place.

The mechanical leverage of this mechanism provides great tension to the bed surface – no cross bars or braces needed. The lever locking system is used on both Cot One and Cot Max.
