DO YOU USE CABLE TIES?
Cable ties are probably the most versatile fasteners on the market. In the USA, they’re known as zip ties generally imported from China and Taiwan. Use them as a fastener to hold things together tightly.
Manufactured from nylon, cable ties are also made from stainless steel. Standard products have a flexible tape section with serrated teeth that engage in a pawl mechanism.
The head forms a ratchet so that the free end of the tape section can be pulled tight. The cable tie then tightens and the one-way teeth design ensures the tie does not come undone.
Typically the width and size of the cable tie determine the tensile strength. Once a cable tie is applied, you cannot undo it however, there are newer designs that include a tab. When depressed, it enables the release or loosens the cable tie.
WHICH INDUSTRIES USE CABLE TIES?
Cable tie products are used in a variety of industries too numerous to mention. The most popular industries are:
- Electrical – for securing electrical wiring to beams
- Automotive – for securing cables within an engine bay.
- Solar – securing systems to roof structures
- Computer – securing electrical cabling inside a computer case.
The applications are endless!
