    Default Loom cables together

    Hi all,

    I am looking at looming together my power, ILDA, and estop cables. I have tried a few lengths using LX tape and although it does work it starts to peel back and leaves a sticky mess due to the ambient temperature.

    Anyone have a suggestion of looming together three cables? I don't want to use small cable ties as they end up being pretty sharp and cutting hands when coiling up.

    Cheers
    Rich

    How about split loom tubing or that expandable mesh stuff? There's always cable lacing as an alternative to zip ties.

    i have also been trying to find something good for looming wires together. I still have not found anything that seems to be what I need.

    I just got some of this to tie up my all my cables on both my projectors, it's fairly cheap, you can cut it. You can cut holes in it if you want one of the cables to stick out like the power cable or something. Works great and is fairly cheap.

    These are available in several lengths and come in white or black.
    They wrap around the cable loom like a belt / belt buckle and do not hurt your hands.
    These WERE available at Home Depot but they no longer carry them and I have to get them off the interwebs nowadays.
