Cable Ties and Cable Tie Tools

 

Cable Ties

Cable Ties are as essential to any tool bag as a Phillips head screw driver. They are versatile, easy to use and have a wide variety of applications for both the contractor and home user. Releasable cable ties are great to use as a temporary measure to secure equipment. And of course there are cable ties which are made for more permanent applications. Due to the low profile and high tensile strength of a cable tie they can easily and safely be used in bundling applications. Cable ties are also known as zip ties or wire ties; they are available in a variety of sizes and materials for use on different projects with different needs. CableOrganizer has everything from releasable cable ties for cable bundles that require re-entry to more durable stainless steel cable ties which are perfect for low temperature projects. CableOrganizer also offers all the accessories and tools to make the job safer, quicker and cheaper to accomplish.

 

Uses

  • Securely Bundle cables and wires. The positive-locking teeth of the cable tie allow you to make minute adjustments to create bundles of varying sizes. This means that when your cable bundle has a breakout point and the bundles are split into smaller groupings the cable ties can be tightened to allow for the new constraint.
  • Organize, Identify and Code cable bundles for optimum cable management, so that the cables routed underneath your desk or behind your home theater setup are neat and tidy. Cable Flags with built in labels are wonderful for keeping your video cables separate from your audio cables, even when you need to move locations or reconfigure the cables, you'll never have to worry which cable 'goes to what device' again.
  • Secure and Mount tools, bicycles and wires in the garage with cable ties.
  • Clips for Cable Ties hold cables, tubing and hoses in place. Great for routing cords in confined spaces.
  • Mounting Bases for Cable Ties are perfect for creating a complete routing system. Works in confined spaces or where linear removal might be necessary. 2 and 4-way cable tie mounts orientation is available depending on your routing requirements.

Application guidelines

Installation is easier than 1, 2, 3.

Cable tie steps

Note - for large jobs take into consideration potential hand strain that comes with repetitive motions. A light weight cable tie installation tool can be the answer to a quicker, safer installation.

* Keep an assortment handy - kit, as zip ties are so versatile for temporary, unexpected repairs.

Accessories

We carry an assortment of light to medium weight cable tie tools to make installation quicker and easier.

 

Nylon Cable Ties

The most commonly used ties are made of nylon. Nylon ties are known for their light weight, pliability, and affordable cost. While they may be installed by hand, a cable tie gun is required for proper tensioning in critical operations, and recommended to reduce installer fatigue in any high volume application.

 

Metal Cable Ties

For applications in harsher environments or extra security for general purpose applications, metal cable ties are a great solution. Most metal ties are made from stainless steel, while some are made of aluminum or other metals. For special applications, such as food manufacturing, magnetic cables are available to prevent them from ending up in packaging.

 

Releasable vs Non-Releasable Ties

Ties of all materials are available as releasable and non-releasable (standard). The obvious advantage to releasable cable ties are reusability, tool-less removal, and easy bundle modification. Non releasable ties are less expensive and are more resistant to tampering.
