Looking for Perfect Cable Tie

  1. I'm looking for a certain type of reopenable cable tie:

    The tie in the above picture was included with a scanner (Travelscan
    Pro) for "bundling" a USB cable. For purposes such as this it is the
    best solution that I've ever seen, IMHO.

    Does anyone know where to get ties like that or who manufactures those?

    What about those velcro cable straps? Those are reusable.
     
  3. I know about them, but I like the pictured cable tie better.
    The pictured cable tie is also reusable (otherwise it wouldn't fit the
    described purpose very well).

    Radio Shack has/had reclosable clips.

    Exactly the model that I described?

    Better, IMO. The ones you show are used by manufacturers to bundle cables
    for shipping IIRC.

    Most reusable cable ties that I know are too fiddly. But maybe the
    RadioShack ones are different.
    Perhaps. Nevertheless, they are perfect for my intended purpose. If
    anyone knows where to get these, let me know.

    ISTR ones like a child's shoe fastener that you just fold over on each
    other. They have double sided tape an back.

    Thanks for the hint. However, BuyCableTies.com doesn't offer the model
    that I'm after.

    Double sided tape? That's not what I call reusable.
