Zip Tie Battery Holder

In this Instructable you will learn how to use zip ties to tame the clutter of batteries and other stuff you have at home. All you need is a few minutes of free time to complete this instructable.

Step 1: Get Out Your Zip Ties!

All you need for this Instructable is:
- Zip ties
- Desktop clutter

And you will also need these tools:
- A knife
- Room to work!

Let's begin!

Step 2: Zip It All Up!

Take the batteries and stand them up as a group. Then take the zip tie and zip it around the batteries, making sure to make it snug. The one thing to remember doing this is that you will want your batteries to be able to slide out if you need one. Once you have the zip tie at your desired point, cut off the extra with the knife. You can use this method for other things on your desk too, like pencils. I used this method to clean up my desk's drawer. I hope this instructable has helped you with your mess as much as it did with mine

    As for the batteries, I would not cut off the excess zip tie as when you remove a battery you can easily tighten the tie to hold the remaining batteries.

    I usually end up putting things like this in a bag. The only issue with zip ties I have for these things is that I generalize them as long term.


    Great idea for keeping the batteries all together. That way you never have to rummage through a cluttered drawer.
