This is not a new product, but it’s one we think our readers ought to know about. See, zip ties are great for bundling cables and tidying the inside of a PC case for example. Or arresting people. But while you won’t be arresting anyone with the Q-Knot rubber ties, you will be able to re-use them, unlike traditional plastic zip ties. Their rubber construction means that if you pull hard enough, the teeth will go through in the opposite direction, releasing the band. This could be handy if you forgot to bundle a particular cable and don’t want to have to cut the zip tie. Yeah, you could argue that the regular plastic ties are cheap, so what’s the issue? And that’s true but hey… the environment and all that stuff? Not to mention that $10 for a pack of 25 isn’t all that expensive either.
