Thought pf the day

I'd make the argument that zip ties are a close rival to duct tape in terms of useful things for ones toolbox.

You guys need to step up your game...the hook/loop (Velcro) zip-tie straps are the cat!
tons of sizes and colors...reusable...

Plus you can tie things to your rack and the items won't work loose...

Zip tie a perps wrists.................. Muy bueno
Duct tape a perps anything ......... No bueno

Each has its own use but zip ties are the duct tape of the new millennium. Viva le Zeep Tie!

Concur. Although I skimp and get the bare steel kind.

Ratchet straps work great for securing broken tranny mounts

X 1000, I actually keep the steel ones in my cars as well as plastic... I've used the metal ones for hose clamps and exhaust hangers when I was a kid in a pinch
