Hosexpress offers the new Self-Lok Ties and Tools from Band-IT. These Self-lok Ties have a much lower profile than conventional ties and includes the Smooth ID design. This Self-Lok is a strong, self-locking, stainless steel cable tie available on the market today. The Self-locking design substantially provides more locking force than conventional ball clamps since the locking bar contacts both the bottom and top of the band at the edges where the strongest part of the buckle is. The new Self-Lok Tool is the easiest tool to use; you simply insert the tail and tighten. The internal locking bar rolls freely until the desired tension is reached, then the locking bar wedges into the buckle by locking it tightly to the top and bottom of the band.
