What are velcro cable ties?
• Velcro cable ties wrap around wires, cables and objects and then back onto themselves for a secure hold. Because the ties are made using soft and flexible, hook and loop materials, they are gentle on cables. This characteristic is what makes them such a popular choice for securing CAT-5 cables and fiber optic wiring and with other applications. Velcro cable ties have grown in popularity in part because they are reusable and so easy to use.
• The top selling velcro cable ties are our Standard velcro-style Cable ties , cinch straps and the new economy ties.

Velcro Cable Ties are an extremely popular cable management product. Introduced in the early 90's, they have grown in popularity every since. Velcro cable ties are used by large OEM's, sold by leading Distributors and are on the shelves of National retail stores. Speedtech was instrumental in the developmental of the velcro cable tie offering, by designing and fabricating some of the first ties. Some twenty years later, Speedtech continues to develop new designs and improve its velcro cable tie offering.
Steve Pope, Vice President of Speedtech comments, "One of the fun things about our company, is the ability to work with everyone from home owners, do-it-yourselfers, outdoor recreation users to large OEM's and National Distributors. For example, a conversation with an electrician might lead us to a new product design that we can later introduce to a hardware and home center for inclusion in their electrical aisles. The users are the ones that improve the products and keep us on our toes."
Speedtech's customers range from home owners who use ties to organize the cables behind their stereo or desk, to musicians for their studios, installer networks for organizing data-closets, to marine distributors and more. Speedtech's President, Chris Karnowski adds, "Working with a diverse network of customers and distributors helps us broaden our contact with end users which in turn fuels our product development. Of course it doesn't hurt to work with multiple industries as they all have their ups and downs and being diverse stabilizes the company."
"The reusability of velcro cable ties is a big reason for their popularity." adds Pope. Steve goes on to say, "The natural competitor to the velcro cable tie is the nylon cable tie. Most nylon ties are not reusable however and even the ones that are reusable, require the user to stick their fingernail or a sharp tool into the 'tang' of the tie's head to open the tie. Opening those nylon ties is almost so time consuming that its easier just to cut them off and replace them. As you can imagine, fiber and data-com installers and electricians don't want to stick sharp objects next to to their expensive cables, just to pry off a tie. Now do that process over-and-over again! I'd rather use a slightly more expensive velcro cable tie and future proof the project."
