Stainless Steel Cable Ties
Stainless Steel Cable Ties
Stainless Steel Cable Ties are significantly stronger than nylon cable ties with added benefits. They are resistant to corrosion, chemcial and weathering effects. Stainless steel cable ties feature a rolling ball internal locking mechanism. The ball is designed to only roll one way so sliding the tie ends into the locking mechanism is easy but they cannot be removed just by pulling on them.
Stainless steel cable ties also allow for extreme environmental use without compromising their integrity. They are commonly used the automotive industry but can also be found in utilities, construction, chemical, fire protection, communication, aerospace and nuclear industries. These ties are also made of 316 stainless steel making them the ideal choice for marine environments.

Bob: Welcome back to Albany County Fasteners - Fasteners 101. I'm Bob and today I’m going to demonstrate zip ties in stainless steel, 316 Stainless. These things are awesome. Let's get started.
I have here stainless steel cable ties, these are 316 stainless. It has this little clasp here which is a roll-able, self-locking cable tie (head mechanism). You just turn these around like that and slide it into the clasp and they lock as soon as you push them in. Just like a regular zip tie.
I'm going to show you this on these couple pieces of cable I have here. Slide them in. And it'd be good to have to have a (pair of) pliers with you and you also want to look out for how much tension (you apply). I have lock-jaws here, I'm just gonna grab this and I'm just gonna give it a pull. It's it nice and tight, I'm gonna do another one. If you have pliers it does make it a lot easier. Just pull it tight because if you're working on any fancy cars, you're gonna want it to be nice and tight and look uniform.
I have my snips here and as you can see here it has a rounded edge on the on the ends of the zip tie. I'm gonna snip these clean and I will tell you that this gets sharp after you snip them because they are stainless, but it finishes nice.
At the same time, I want to show you, I'm going to fasten them to this piece of channel I have here. Just gonna slide this underneath. So if you’re fastening wires to a piece of channel, give it a pull. I'm gonna give this one a pull. Cut off the excess; these are great for automotive. If you have a custom car exhaust; anything under the car, these will not rust so your custom car will look beautiful after many many years.
HVAC installations, any type of plumbing, high heat environments, saltwater environments, any corrosive environment. these are the babies you want.
Thanks for watching.
