Designed to fasten wire bundles and harness components quickly, the cable ties consist of a smooth nylon strap with a head, or pawl, containing a stainless steel barb. When engaged, the barb presses into the nylon strap, providing a tight grip and a strong, long-lasting hold.

Designed without notches, the barbed cable tie from 3M has infinite locking positions. The barb can be locked at any point along the strap, allowing more precise positioning than typical ratchet-style cable ties. The nylon strap’s ribbed pattern provides extra grip to prevent slippage.

The cable ties are sold by most major electrical product distributors. They are available in black and natural, and in seven different lengths ranging from four to 28 inches.

The steel-barbed cable tie expands the 3M portfolio of cable ties. More information about cable ties from 3M can be found  online or by calling the 3M Electrical Markets Division at  800-245-3573.
