Velcro cable ties from Amazon - what do you recommend?
Posted by: pinkoos

Has anyone bought a package of velcro cable ties from Amazon? There are too many options and reviews are all over the place.

I'm looking for a pack of 50 or so, Prime eligible, if anybody can recommend something they've used in the past.

Thanks

I second Mattkime recommendation. I have purchased that brand twice and that size in 2015. The price does fluctuate.

Thanks all - I guess it didn't dawn on me to buy the actual "Velcro" brand!

Yeah, I just found that Lowe's has the 50 pack for like $5, so I'm going to have my wife pick up a pack today.

Thanks for the help everybody

I bought that same 100 pk awhile back and agree that those are great. But I'm also a fan of the rolls that you can cut to length. Those are great for tidying up and hiding cables.

This is what I use also. What I like the most about them is how thin they are. A lot of other ones are super thick because they look like two pieces of velcro glued together.

Monoprice is always a good option - thanks for the reminder

However, the last time I used Monoprice, my item took like 2 weeks to arrive when it was something that was in stock and supposed to ship same day.

I've been using those Velcro ties for years. I buy the 100 pack when it goes on sale. Pretty much EVERY cord I have to deal with gets one of these. On thin, short cords, I'll cut the Velcro strip to ~ a 4" length; otherwise, there'd be far more strap than is needed. I've never had one fail. old fogey smiley

10+ years ago I bought 3 rolls of hook and loop fasteners from eBay. One red, one blue, and one black.
Not sure how many yards per roll. The roll is about 6 inches in diameter. I use them very often. Cut custom lengths. Use different colors for OCD fun.

If it's not a rush get some shipped from China. 15 different colors.
6 foot roll costs $1.50

I've always been partial to spiral cable wrap. It's a bit more expensive, but it somewhat pet proofs things.

I hate getting cheap hook n loop straps that fail after four uses.

I'll check these out. In the past I've used plastic re-useable locking strips that work well but tended to be too long.

I've used this type and another plastic loom conduit for wiring on my bike. Keeps things tidy.

I just got some hook and loop straps, and I have not had the chance to use them, but they look pretty good. Envision cinch straps.
