I want to know about cable ties and their uses. Please give me some information.
First, they are great for organizing cables. You can use them to tidy up cords for storage or clean up the mess behind your TV or computer.
You can use them to close plastic garbage bags.
They can be uses for repairs if there is something to you need to hold together.
Multiple cable ties can be attached together if you need more length.
If you need to put up a temporary fence, you can use them to attach metal fencing to metal fence polls.
I use a lot of modular shelving, which can be unstable.
I had a particularly tall one going for a while. So I screwed one of those eyehooks to the wall, then tied a cable tie around the top of the shelving unit and the eyehook. This essentially affixed my shelving to the wall, giving the structure needed stability.
I use the hooks that can go on the wall and be removed without hurting the wall. I get the larger ones and then I put a cable tie through my mop and broom handles and I am able to hang them up nicely on my wall, and can move them easily. I love being able to hang them up without having to mount them on the wall with screws. I also have a trailer on the back of my car for my mobility scooter.
Zip ties can be a good temporary method of supporting plants that you are trying to train or that have heavy blooms. This is a page about use zip ties to support plants.
