Regular nylon cable ties have been around since the 1950s and they haven’t changed much in all that time.

Reusable cable ties are perfect for a whole variety of jobs.

While non-resealable cable ties make great one-time permanent and semi-permanent fastenings, resealable or reusable cable ties can be used for slightly different jobs.

They’re fast and easy to use, they’re economical and you don’t need any specialised or potentially harmful tools to operate them.

A new generation of releasable cable ties means that less plastic waste will go to landfill.

Reusable cable ties are great for:

  • Home entertainment system cable management
  • Domestic and office computer cable management
  • Sign and banner hanging
  • Festivals and events
  • Theatre and film sets
  • Exhibitions
  • Art installations
  • Electrical
  • Heating and ventilation
  • Construction
  • Automotive
  • Gardening
  • Waste disposal
  • Removals

Rapstrap re-usable cable ties

Rapstrap is a reusable cable tie that’s great for all sorts of everyday jobs. The stretchy cable ties were developed as an alternative to regular nylon ties and help dramatically reduce waste.

An innovative design, which was first premiered on Dragon’s Den, means that the cable ties can be trimmed down and re-used. Instead of throwing the cable tie tail in the bin after clipping it, you can use it to fashion something else.

Each Rapstrap produces around five normal sized cable ties. And because they are soft, they can be used for a variety of purposes like fastening plants in the garden.

Developed by kooky inventory Andrew Harsley, Rapstrap has become one of the most successful products to pass through the Den after it received £150,000 of investment from James Caan and Duncan Bannatyne.
