Bendable, colorful Gear Ties are twisty ties on steroids



(Las Vegas, Nevada - January 7, 2011- CES) - I came across another cool and simple product today and it's one of those things that makes you stop and go "hmmm."


Gear Ties reusable, rubber twist ties from Nite Ize are made from a strong wire coated with a tough rubber shell that provides excellent grip and bendability with plenty of strength to hold their shape. The come in an array of colors for color-coding or matching. They're available in five sizes (3”, 6”, 18”, 24” or 32”) and can be used to wrap or secure many things.

These things are just really cool! They made their debut at CES and were getting a lot of attention. You can use them to bundle things, organize cables or secure or attach things. Anything you would normally with a twisty tie or cable tie you can do with these, and you can use them over and over again. They're also a great replacement for bungee cords in some applications. I'll say it again, sometimes the simplest gadget is the one that makes the biggest difference.
