Aimed at professional installers, these Zip-Tite nylon ties eliminate the final step of the securing process. The installer does not need to use nippers to trim the tails. Instead, simply twisting the tail breaks it off at the nearest serration, leaving a clean—and non-sharp—edge.
For the electrician forming dozens to hundreds of tie-offs a day, the time savings can be significant. They no longer have to reach for the nipper in the holster each time, or awkwardly hang onto the nipper throughout the tie-off process.
"Despite this unique design, our cable ties have the same tensile strength as standard cable ties, providing a reliable and secure hold," writes the manufacturer, Iowa-based tool company Tite-Reach.
Zip-Tites come in light-, standard- and heavy-duty variants, in 4" to 20" lengths.
