What Are the Usages of Cable Ties?

Simply put, cable ties pack electrical wire and cables together. Cable ties can also be used to organize and sort wire and cable.

Miniature sizes are used for holding small loads, while larger items or bundles require longer lengths and stronger tensile strengths.
