Also called zip ties, cable ties are used to bundle and organize cable. They consist of thin strips with an inner lining of sloping teeth that create a locking mechanism when drawn through the head of the cable tie. They are commonly used to bundle multiple cables or wires in organization, transportation and safety applications. For heavy-duty or outdoor environments, stainless steel cable ties offer excellent resistance to corrosion and cutting. Lightweight nylon or plastic cable ties and straps are ideal for lightweight applications.
