Nylon cable ties with a metal tooth made from stainless steel teeth are a step up from the standard nylon cable ties that offer improved tensile strength in smaller cable tie sizes. The stainless steel tooth provides an extra layer of security, making them ideal for confined spaces and vibrating environments.

Our 7.5mm width metal tooth cable ties with stainless steel teeth have a tensile strength of 60 kilograms. For context, the standard 7.6mm nylon cable ties have a tensile strength of 54.4 kilograms. The metal tooth cable ties are also more flexible than their standard nylon counterparts, due to the lack of serration in the strap.
