The Little Tie Thingies

What are the plastic ties called that are used to tie your excess cables inside the PC? I need to buy some and don't know where to look. Thanks,

Home depot has a nice assorted container of them otherwise in the same section you should find them in gross packages in various lengths. I prefer the black zip ties in a medium length. If you go to Home Depot look for another valuable widget called Cable Cuffs, there orange and close down with a handcuff like ratchet and come in 3 or 4 sizes. Great for cable management behind the computer and around the house... believe me there very handy and you will go back for more! lol

There's a nice assortment here: Cable Management Cable Computer Management Cable Management Network Wire and Cable Management Cable Management Product Organizer-Best Computer Online Store Houston Buy Discount Prices Texas-Directron.com (not saying you have to buy there) If you have a decent PC/electronics repair shop locally they would have them.

I like the spiral type it has a neater look. Just start it at one end, and wrap till your done.

Thanks for the link. Directron is where I had planned to buy them. They are only a couple miles from me so I pickup and save the shipping.

It is a small world....Is Christmas coming soon? Glad I could help bigmck.

If you do get the spirals watch, they can be a little tricky to start, but once you reach where you want to go just snip off the excess.
