Cable tie mounts are an essential element of wiring systems, both in industrial and residential applications. They provide secure, organized housing for long lengths of wires or cables. Cable tie mounts secure the cable/wire in place, which helps eliminate vibration and maintain a secure connection. In addition to tightening the tie, the mount base also helps spread out the load from the cable and to protect the cable from external forces such as wind, animals, and other environmental factors. Cable tie mounts are typically made from a combination of materials such as nylon, turned steel, brass, or stainless steel and are available in a wide range of sizes and shapes. Some mounts feature an adhesive backing for easy and secure installation.
