Hi Mark, I looked at these recently and found they do not have the same load capacity as a traditional wire tie. This test was not done in a lab but there was a noticeable difference. Everyone should be using flush cuts or wire tie guns.


Great to hear from you. I confess that I saw these at a trade show and as yet have not used these on any of my projects. However, I do like the idea that these self trim. In some places you may be able to get a set of cutters in there, but not another hand to catch the loose end. If you snip the end off it always seems to dissapear into the bilge.
