  • Need Velcro for snakes and large ac

    I bought some heavy duty Velcro about 5-6 years ago and used it to wrap snakes and some larger ac. I need more: 1", kinda thick, on a roll and I attach it by cutting 2 slits and zip tying it to the cable. Seems like whatever I see is on the flimsy side.

    Mark may have something like this?

      The Audiopile straps are approx 1/2" wide, the Markertek's are about 3/4", and the Camping World straps are about 1-1/4". I use all three and highly recommend all of them. Occasionally I have found some 2" straps at Camping World, but that seems to be a hit or miss affair.

        I have it on good authority that those referenced straps are nominally 19mm (3/4") wide.



        Pretty good authority anyway.



        BTW: for heavy gauge cable, I prefer to use trick line:

            I tried the velcro route and to be honest it became hard to handle (picks up dust, gets creased, etc) on my thicker speaker and power cables.



            For the past few years I have been using cord similar to trick cord (the nylon kind, so that I can melt the ends to seal them) but have found that old shoe-laces are the best.



            As my "jock" son has gone through middle school and and the first part of high school, I have collected (and use) his old shoe laces from: indoor soccer shoes, outdoor soccer cleats, running sneakers, and basketball sneakers. After four years I've collected a bunch. He's up to a size US12.5 now thus he's just about done growing.



            I use my velcro for suspending my snake and power cords along the parimeter of tent applications....works well.

              Agreed. Actualy, I prefer trick line for most all cables (even though I own several rolls of precut narrow velcro for small cables and do use it liberaly at home) for a couple of reasons. Velcro sticks to it's self at inopportune moments in the untangling process and velcro sticks to carpet (drum rugs, convention floor etc...).
