This week I have a very practical tip for you. In principle, I wanted to introduce Velcro cable ties in general as a recommendation, but a few days ago I had to reorder some and so I chose a set that includes different lengths and even contains 60 cm long cable ties. If you want to take a look at it, please Right this way.
I got to know these things years ago when I bought a used model building drone. The rather heavy batteries were fastened there with such cable ties and, to be honest, I was amazed that the model builders put so much trust in this type of fastening.
However, after I checked for myself how firmly the batteries hold with these Velcro straps, I was pretty enthusiastic about the parts.
There are a couple of positives to these things that I really like:
If you first think about where you can use the Velcro straps, you will find a lot of applications. I personally use it for the following things:
No question about it: these things are so practical that you just have to have them to hand. There is always a use case that you haven't thought of yet. And now that I have a bundle of different sizes at home, there is always an opportunity to attach the pieces.
I mainly use them to hold cables together or to attach something to something else. I'm sure you can think of more practical things. I appreciate your ideas for further uses in the comments.
If you want to get the set I have too, you'll find it via this link or via the following product box:
You can also see red Velcro cable ties in my photos. I bought these earlier and they have no eyelet. They are very practical for cable management, as they hold very well even without an eyelet and they are also available in large quantities for little money. Anyone who only wants to hold thin cables together is with these here well served.
What I also got myself once was a roll with 10 meters of Velcro in one piece. One side of the ribbon is fluffy and the other has the little check marks. This means that you can always cut off as much as you need. However, I found handling the pre-assembled cable ties with eyelets much more practical. But I wanted you to have the opportunity the big Velcro roll not withheld.
