    Trial pack of 20 Made-in-US Velcro cable ties/straps

    Like the ones here.

    http://www.amazon.com/Velcro-Reusabl...uckduckgo-d-20
    (but you need a $25 order, or pay S&H; or to find them at your retailer.

    $2 for 20.. Will Paypal only outside of US


    I ordered long. Great for bundling tarp lines and for all the cordage and lengths in use here. Thin, light, strong, and tenacious. I'm using them every day. Strength? Will support a 5kg bar bell....for awhile, at least. Even long enough to grab and attach a rain fly (in no wind) to small branches. But, not to be mistaken for Dyneema soft-shackle prusiks for strength.

    Before you commit to buy a 100 pack from a favorite retailer, mail me 2 $US bills and I'll reply by First Class Mail, with 20 of them to try out.
    (20 ties + envelope weigh just < 1oz). Grey or black, state a preference.

    I can also work something out, through Paypal, for curious HFers not from Middle North America.

    First 10- 15 interested parties.

    I have probably 1000+ of those ties in use around the house, garage, RC Cars/Planes/Gliders, and everything else in the house and beyond. They are hook one side, loop the other and are great for DIY Sew jobs too.. very thin and hold well. They sew easily and are thinner than most other velcro products you find on the shelf.

    They are GREAT ties. You can find them at OfficeMax/Lowes/HomeDepot as well if you are looking to stock up after trying out the samplers.

    You can get em at WalMart. I bought some for guitar cables and to roll my tarp in. They are durable for sure.

    Those are handy little straps. I use them on electrical cords and various other things around the house.

    Seen these at work

    We use these all the time at work, they are very good. I have several "extras" at home for use around the house. I think I threw a few of them in with my backpacking gear box for sleeping pad bed-roll straps. Lots of good uses for these, since they grip very well.

    Bump it up. What with endorsements, though, go ahead and commit to whole enchilada @ your favorite retail outlet. As others have described well, these 1g double-sided true Velcro strips are wonderful.

    Or give them a try, first, per my first post.
