one handed pull cord tightener.

Is there such a thing ?

For such things as my Alpkit stem cells.

One, where the lock is sewn on to the bag / material or whatever?

I'm sure I read of one a while back but can't find it.

Not sure how sewing the lock on helps, must need to think harder.

I’ve always wondered why alpkit didn’t supply these originally

All my jackets have them.

By making the lock on captive, pulling the cord overcomes the friction it creates. When you stop pulling it stays there.

Not sure where you get the parts but the revelate feed bags have a superb opening system

This might give you some clues
