What are cable ties?
Cable ties or zip ties are a type of fastener for holding things together. They can be used in an extraordinary number of different applications. Cable ties are typically made from nylon but also stainless steel. Common products have a flexible tape section with teeth that engage in a pawl in the head to form a ratchet so that as the free end of the tape section is pulled the cable tie tightens, the one-way teeth design ensures they do not come undone. Typically the width and size of the cable tie determine the tensile strength. Once a cable tie is applied, it typically cannot be undone however there are newer designs including a tab that can be depressed to release or loosen the cable tie.
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.
- Police – used to secure people
The applications are endless!
