    Does anybody know the name or can suggest the place to purchasing long quantities of "twist ties" similar to what you find on bread or use to close trash bags?

    I too would like a supply of quality black plastic twist ties. I end up saving them from all packaging because they are so useful in wire management.

    They make plastic twist ties?

    I've never used twist ties for cable management because of the metal in them, in fears that it could cause interference. I might be overreacting though, someone told me that a long time ago and it always stuck with me.

    I went to my local home depot or lowes and they had a roll of "twisty ties" that you could easily cut to whatever length you need. Very handy, I've use it a ton.

    ^^^ I like this stuff a lot better. Zip ties need snippers to remove them, meaning (for me) a trip out to the garage for a tool. Twist ties work if you have a bunch on hand, but if your'e buying them then take a look at something like this. Most hardware stores have it too.

    Also good for your garden plants, ie if your peppers go crazy and you need to prop them up against a stick. LOL not many things are useful inside a PC and in a garden both.

    Yup, I use Velcro ties to train my pot plants tomatoes. :whiste:

    They may be more expensive initially, but, unlike zip ties, they're completely adjustable and reusable.
