At BuyHeatShrink.com, we offer cable ties in a variety of styles and colors. Depending on what you’re using cable ties for will determine which tie you should use. For example, if your project will experience extreme weather or anything that weighs over 100lbs, metal cable ties are your best choice.
Cable ties are made from a variety of materials: Nylon, metal,and plastic, just to name a few. Plastic cable ties are the most common, and are used in a variety of personal and industrial projects. Some forms of plastic cable ties are heat and cold resistant, allowing them to withstand extreme environmental forces.
If you want to remove a plastic cable tie without cutting it, simply (1) pull the cable tie backward, (2) push your fingernail, nail file, or other thin and hard object between the teeth and the “pawl,” and (3) slowly pull the end of the cable tie back through the opening.
