This storage cube has 16 of these metal frame squares and we only needed 2 of them.

I have always heard that using a nylon wire tie would damage the cable signal, especially if it was zipped on tight….. which let’s all face it… we zip that puppy on there as tight as we can to keep it secure right! For example take a look at the back of that desk, those items were probably fastened on way too tight with a zip tie, not to mention if you want to move or adjust it you have to cut it and throw it away.

They have really helped me in organizing all my tools, cords, ect… Plus I have to admit, I actually end up using the larger straps for camping and other various activities that need product organization.
