What's special about these cable ties?

  • Unique, intelligent design gently wraps around contoured or uneven surfaces to provide a safe and secure cable management solution for delicate fiber optic or CAT6 cables
  • No-crush technology, with "intelligent grip" allows the pressure-sensitive latch to slip when too much force is applied, helping to eliminate cable compression, which can lead to a deduction in system performance
  • Cost effective, reusable construction saves installers money and time, because it allows cables to be inserted into (or removed from) a bundle at any time, without requiring the use of a new cable tie

The award-winning Mille-Tie provides users and professional installers with a wide array of benefits for safely bundling cables, plant life, or other delicate products. These unique cable ties are made from special soft polymers, which eliminates the sharp edges that can be damaging to you or the materials you're trying to secure. Every 12" Mille-Tie can yield 3 to 4 ties with no waste, making them a reusable and far more eco-friendly solution than standard cable ties.

  • Great for delicate application such as plants, hoses, and landscaping, while providing up to 3X the uses of conventional zip ties

  • Soft edging is gentle on the installers' hands and material, unlike standard ties that can easily cut into soft surfaces or inflict injury with their sharp, trimmed edges
  • Simple-to-use 12" strips are great for temporary as well as permanent bindings, while saving the user up to ½ the installation time when compared to similar products
  • Also available in Low Smoke Zero Halogen, Heavy Duty and Plenum (UL1565) varieties

  • UL94 class HB flammability rating
  • Meets EIA/TIA standards for safe use in datacom applications

 

Reduces Waste
Every Mille-Tie strip consists of 33 cells, any of which can be used for forming loops. By working forward from the rear, each Mille-Tie strip can yield 3 or 4 ties with little or no waste.
Millie-Tie can be trimmed
Multiple binding Multiple Binding
Alternatively, just loop the Mille-Tie around the next bundle. This technique lets you space and separate cables for easier identification & maintenance.
Quick Releasable
Mille-Tie can also be re-threaded to release the strip:
Simply reinsert the tongue and pull the residual strip back through. Mille-Tie can also be left primed for quick-release by pulling only part-way.
millie-tie can be releasable
Millie-tie can be wound Spirals
The soft & flexible nature of Mille-Tie allows for some creative cable management, and long bundles can easily be contained by winding the Mille-Tie around them. (Tip: join strips together for longer runs.)
Grips Vertical Cables
Unlike cable ties or hook & loop straps, the Mille-Tie provides the optimum level of grip - not too tight, and not too loose.
millie-tie can grip vertically
millie-tie has no sharp edges No Sharp Edges
By using only soft, performance polymers, Mille-Ties are far safer than the traditional hard nylon cable tie. Mille-Ties are easy to cut for reuse, and leave behind no dangerous sharp edges like cables ties can.

      These things work great!. I do a lot of cable management at the college and I can say these things are so much better than a tie wrap. I can take one MilliTie and wrap up about 4-6 places. If I need to re-adjust and move one, I just loosen the MiliTie and tighten again. My boss has already ordered us 200 more.

              Not that useful

              Saw this listed under "reusable" ties, but it's not really that -- it's not releasable or semi-permanent. After you make a bundle, you can cut off the excess and use that bit as a smaller tie. That's okay if your budget is really tight, but are you really going to save all those loose bits? Also, they're snaggy and will catch the little points on anything. Strong, but the flexibilty can be a minus when it lets the bundle slip.

                        Q. What is the worst part of using cable ties?
                        A. The waste of material when the ties are tightened and cut.

                        Practical Solution: Millie-tie

                        Like many work stations, the underside of my desk looked like a snake's den. I elected to resolve my tangled nightmare with a simple solution; tie everything together.

                        When I first saw the Millie-ties they looked more complicated than they really are. This unique tie can be threaded through the first hole, tightened, cut, and then the Millie-tie head can again be threaded through a hole of the remaining tie.

                        If I was to use traditional 7" nylon cable ties for my project, I would have needed at least 25 ties. (7" x 25 ties = 175"). By choosing Milli-ties and using the same tie again and again, I was able to minimize the waste for each tie. I did the same project with 6 of the 12" Millie-ties. (12" x 6 ties = 72").
