    I use Narva ones and dull side cutters so it squashes the end slightly to prevent them coming completely off. Type?????

    stainless no idea,
    but if plastic, not supercheap.
    sometimes the Aldi multipack for varied size for non important use.
    Or whatever the fastener shop or repco sells.
    Have also got some uv resistant ones from Bunnings I think.
    Maybe most are, I dunno.

    I wouldn’t mind some of those reusable plastic ones, but have never bought them.
    One of those things I’m always gonna buy, but never do.

    I cut them with cable tie cutters.
    Perfectly flat and sharp on one side. No burs, perfectly smooth.

    got the cutters from somewhere on here, that had a link about JIS impact screwdrivers.

    ones that don't cut off circulation or mark the skin, but still hold the wrists nice and firm.

    Don’t bother watching the vid..
    It doesn’t say what brand and what they were cut with..

    edit.
    I see it was posted on the Dakar thread, so you may already know that. :fpalm
    I’m too slow today..

    all good. :lol3

    I carry para cord for my tyres in an emergency.
    Now I am thinking cable ties as well.
    never had to test either.

    ive only used the stainless stuff a few times when I worked on the Story Bridge.
    There is a little bit of an art to those. I never mastered it.

    the pic shows where I worked.
    The arrow is where I saw a scaffold pole fall into traffic.
    It actually bounced over a car. It was crazy to watch.
    Always look up when riding that bridge..!!!

    Those cable ties and ratchet would have come from the official Dakar tool chest, available to the guys on the Marathon stage.

    Weller zip ties worked perfectly holding the DR rear hub together on the original Maidenwell ride. Special thanks to Drjoe and Will for this job.
