ONE trick big tie doesn't want you to know!

    Here in Europe every zip tie pack has that hole in the side. It’s the law. Size-standards per zip tie gauge. We’ve been laughing at you Canericans’ primitive zip tie legislation since 1957. Big Zip Tie has been eating you alive. We’re worried though about our UK neighbours since Brexit, every one knows that ain’t gonna end well. They’re back to being BZT fodder all over again. Poor sods.

      Some clearly don’t know a tongue from a cheek but that’s ok. Here in Europe every kid has their tongue and cheeks labeled with ‘tongue’ and ‘cheek’ respectively. It makes us talk a bit funny but we never miss irony.

    Good bag trick, WRONG ZIP TIES. I spent a bit more and got releasable ties which can be reused. Heaven. (Well, yeah, I do have a bag of each size ties from Horrible Fright. They're used for one-off ties, throwaways.) I also spent a buck more for the bag of 100 8-inchers which had a ring on the end for a screw to hold 'em down.

    I just use one to zip tie the rest, when you use enough just put the strap tighter. Works also if you just want a bundle in your toolbox without carrying al of your supplies.

  62. TAD2020


    پیش 6 روز

    On the smaller than those, I snip the corner just enough where about 2 or 3 will fit out with some effort and any more will jam up the hole. Works similarly but requires more hand dexterity. Its a bit easier to access from the end when shoved in with a bunch of other junk. Bulk zip tie bags are the way to go. I've been using the same sacks of 6" and 12" for the past 20 years.

    One of our running zip tie bags at work has holes in both ends. Neither I nor my boss, the only two people in the company, are the sort of person who would do that. So I just pick up the bag and get really fucking confused as to who decided to commit an act of zap strap bag terrorism and wether or not it's one of the operators I actually like. Such are the struggles of the industrial elecktchicken.
