Cable Tie Tools
What are cable tie tools?
Cable tie tools are types of tools that are specially designed to work with various types of cable ties. These tools can take various forms but always serve to either tighten cable ties to the exact tension or to sever the tail of the tie at the proper length. Every cable tie tool that Pacer carries has been tested to ensure the highest level of quality. These cable tie tools are so trustworthy in fact, that we use them on our own production lines in our manufacturing facilities. Now that you know these tools are of the highest caliber, let us take a look at the differences between them.

What Types of Cable Tie Tools are Available?
Where are these products implemented?
Cable ties tools are implemented in applications where cable ties are used to secure wire runs, bundles, or other objects. Due to their ease of use, cable ties have become extremely commonplace. Cable tie tools can be used in both new installations as well as when replacing parts. If you have damaged cable tie tools or broken cable tie tools then you came to the right place. We offer all the tools you will need to work with your cable ties. All you will need are cable ties, mounts, and possibly marine wire.
What is the difference between these cable tie tools?
When selecting the correct cable tie tool for your application, you need to understand the difference between each tool and where they are designed to excel. Each cable tie tool we offer is built to work with a set type cable tie. Another thing to consider is the sizes of cable ties that a specific cable tie tool can handle. Below we will take a more in depth look at each of the different types of cable tie tools we offer.
The cable tie cutter is the perfect tool for rapid cable tie installation when you need the ties secured to the exact tension. Designed for use with 18 lb. to 50 lb. tensile strength cable ties, this cable tie tool has an adjustment knob to ensure you can quickly change the setting. This way you can work with multiple styles of cable ties in quick succession. The cable tie cutter works with sub-miniature, miniature, intermediate, and standard size cable ties making it the ideal cable tie tool in many situations.
Our cable tie tension tool is designed for use exclusively with stainless steel cable ties. The simple manual cable tie tool allows you to coil the tail of the cable tie to prevent abrasion or damage. Damage that could occur due to the stainless-steel cable tie tail rubbing against wire insulation or another surface. Without the proper cable tie tool, getting the correct tension on a stainless-steel cable tie is near impossible. This tool makes the process a breeze.
When dealing with stainless steel cable ties, this tool is the strongest option that we offer. Lightweight and promoting one-handed operation, this cable tie tool easily removes excess cable stainless steel ties while creating the optimal tension on the body of the tie. To make this tool even better, the tension on the tool is directly controlled by the operator. When it comes to high quality cable tie tools you will be hard pressed to find a model superior to this one.
What cable ties will these tools work on?
Each cable tie tool works best when used with the cable ties that fall within its recommended usage range. The cable tie cutter is for use with sub-miniature, miniature, intermediate, and standard ties, especially when the required tension falls between 18 lb. to 50 lb. This tool is for use exclusively with nylon cable ties.
The cable tie tension tool, as well as the stainless-steel cable tie cutting tool, are for use with, you guessed it, stainless steel cable ties. This means that these two tools handle the toughest of the tough but do not work well with nylon cable ties. Knowing the proper type of cable tie tool to use with each type of cable tie is essential to getting the job done right.
Where are these tools designed to be used?
Cable tie tools are designed to be used in any location that you find cable ties. Given that cable ties are such a prevalent fastening tool, it makes sense that cable tie tools would be built to handle tougher environments than the cable ties themselves. If you can use a cable tie in an application, then you can use a cable tie tool as well.
