Common Questions, Awesome Answers

Do GripLockTies have metal clips?  

 

No. And that's a good thing!  

 

1: Metal clips would not enable you to reseal the tie. 

 

2: Metal clips, under stress, cut into the strap and often have a lower strength rating or deform, releasing the tie. Metal clip ties have no redundant points of fastening, unlike the three teeth on the GripLockTies Locking head. Metal clips do not make a tie strong. The strength is in the quality nylon.

 

3: Testing proves that the Dupont nylon and the strong GripLockTies deep teeth engagement surpasses other Metal clip ties.

 

 

4. Metal clip ties are often used to smash the wires too tight, which can damage the wire filaments and insulation. Rubber lining eliminates the need to smash the wires to the point of damage, because the rubber forms around the wire and the rubber keeps the tie from moving.
