Many people who use zip ties a lot like to reuse them. This instructable shows a simple, easy way to reuse the zip ties.

Step 1: Step 1

Tighten the tie all the way so that there is a tiny loop at the end

Step 2: Step 2

Now use the tie like it is a normal zip tie. That's it!
Or you can just undo the zip tie to reuse it.
<p>Does it have similar holding power as a &quot;normally used&quot; zip tie? If so, this is a great way to conserve ties.</p>
So how do you reuse the ziptip I don't understand. ..
<p>They are taking a new zip tie and closing it on itself to make a small loop that the end can go through without &quot;locking&quot;</p>
<p>Me too. Why you don't just untied it?</p><p>Also, I don't understand why some people vote even if do not understand ...</p>
<p>good idea, but normally you can just open them with a tiny thing (p.e. a small screw driver) to reuse them</p>
<p>How cool is that! Thanks for sharing</p>
<p>WHAT?!?! That's by far the most useful 2 step Instructable I've ever seen! =)</p>
I don't really understand this but I will still vote
<p>It's the small things that make my day!</p>
<p>i think the zip tie with this way cannot do the same function it will be weak if you use to tight something you need to tight it strongly .</p>
