 some tips from a former electrician

You know what I like to cut off cable ties? A simple nail clipper. (The sturdier, the better) They are a lot cheaper than side cutters and they make a nice smooth (-formed cutting, on which you will never bruise your skin. (I got that idea when working for a German company, who didn't like it, when they were cut off with our sturdy cutting pliers (and they were right). I didn't feel like starting to walk around with another set of smaller cutting pliers. So I started using a nail clipper)

Another thing I found at IKEA, here in Belgium, were velcro strips, three in a pack to attach the cables. Dirt cheap and reusable when you start reorganizing. I don't know if they still have them here. Those racks are sometimes also found in other places besides ikea, over here)

Cheers,

Johan
