A new video from popular YouTube channel Mr Gear highlights some less conventional uses for cable ties, including some that not even we had thought about before.
The video shows you how cable ties can be used to make a notepad that sticks to the fridge, a low cost keyring and a replacement zip if yours falls off.
It also includes some purposes that are closer to the original use of cable ties with a desk-hanging cable organiser that you can use to store all those loose USB cables and other wires that clutter up your drawers and office space.
The video shows just how versatile cable tidies can be when you are prepared to get creative. From low-cost quick fixes, to permanent organisation solutions, cable ties are perfect for lots of uses at home and in the office. It pays to keep some around, just in case.
