- Set up the required cables or objects to manage. Bundle the necessary cables, cords, and wires together.
- Lightly dust the cable before tying them together. It will be difficult to take the cables apart once they’re tied together, so it is better to clean them beforehand.
- Loop one end of the Cable Tie through the clasp lock mechanism in such a way that the loop side touches the hook side of the cable tie, thus creating a secure grip between both sides. Snugly lock the cable tie until little to no space is left for the cables to entangle or move.
- Once the cables are bundled snugly, you can cut the excess cable tie using a nipper or scissors. Make sure to cut the cable tie flatly, and not with an angle, to prevent any sharp edges which may pose a cutting/scraping hazard, should you brush your arm or hands on it in the future.
Extra Uses for Zip Ties:
Aside from bundling cables together, there are DIY scenarios where you can use your cable zip ties as an alternative:
- For Sock-Pairing
- As a replacement pull tab on a damaged zipper slider head
- As a DIY shower curtain ring
- As a unique luggage tag identifier
