This article was originally published on our Blog in September of 2017.

Cable Ties, also known as tie wraps or zip ties, are commonly used in the industrial sector for bundling wire, cable and cords to keep them neat and organized. Consumers also regularly use them to secure totes, luggage and retail items. Their strength makes them appealing, but when cut without the right tool, it’s easy to cut or scratch yourself with a sharp edge. Our Cable Tie Cutter makes the task easier and safer.
Cable ties should always be cut flush to the termination point, leaving no spike on the cut end. This is especially important in a manufacturing environment. The spike is what could cause scratches or cuts to people doing wire and cable work.
