I use one Gear Tie daily to open our outer chicken coop door and one to hang lettuce for the chickens to peck in the coop. We also use them all over the house, garden and with all our gear. Thanks for making great products!
I am involved with a search and rescue group located in Utah. These ties have helped me in keeping my ropes neat and tight, , hanging lights to better see and package an injured climber, using as a quick collar for an injured dog, tying on extra gear on top of my pack, are just a few of the many advantages of having these ties available. Thank you
I picked a few of these up at a trade show. As I was biking home, the strap on my bag broke. I used the gear ties to strap the bag to the frame of my bike. My bag had a U lock and a ton of magazines in it, it probably weighed 8 pounds. The bag stayed super secure for 3.5 miles of bumpy snow and sidewalks without needing to adjust it at all. I was very impressed by how well these gear ties stay put under high vibrational stress and a moderately heavy load.
I've used these to tie up extension cords and garden hoses, but I think my niece showed me how useful they are for busy moms. She has 1 1/2 year old twin boys, who are very curious and can use their little hands to open everything. She used the rubber twist to tie to "shut" the cabinet doors since a regular baby cabinet lock wouldn't work. Items stored in the cabinet are safe from them!
Such a simple product. I have a several uses for them. I have the 6 inch and 18 inch. A brilliant product!
