Tear it / Cable Tie

Tear it
Tear it

The traditional cable tie is a disposable design that ties object firmly. But when you need to untie it, the strip pattern and its sturdy material makes it difficult to remove without breaking it with destructive tools such as a pair of scissors. The"Tear it "solves this with a new design that has a tear-off notch in every few millimetres. The user can tear the cable tie apart with a single hand.
