A New Quick Bundle Tie



Special :

- Easy and fast locking

- New system, strong and durable, reusable



Easy use
Coupling by just pulling the strap from the side in. No need of vision to fit the free end of a strap into a narrow hole. Extra tensioning can be done in the same move.

Releasabillity

Unlocking and removing of the strap in an easy and quick way by sidewards pulling. A tongue ensures the inserting.

Speed

Quick usage opens the way to bundling during a short time. Temporary bundling helps handling.

Strength
The ZicLok head closes itself around the strap supporting the pawls with growing force, to secure high pulling forces. The movement of the teeth is very precise, enabling the user to reach a high bundling tension.

Low cost production
A cable tie as shown at the right side can be made of polymere in one piece by injection moulding in a simple two-piece mould.

Invention
The ZicLok system is the only simple coupling system that offers sidewards coupling in combination with high performance. It differs fundamentally from all other kinds of high force multi-use tensionable strap-couplers, and beats them all in speed.

Future
Several applications of this system can be thought of, with different sizes and shapes of the strap.
A first small testamount has been produced. It's a bundle tie for general use, with a big head and a circular strap with big barbs as shown at the right.
Videoregistrations showing use of this tie can be found at ZicTie.

Shown below is a visionmodel of this type with other relative sizes, offering the same strength, with a two times smaller head and finer barbs. These smaller sizes are possible when a normal precise moulding process is used instead of the test series production method.

The other shown model is type T41. This bundle strap is produced by 3Dprinting, to be used for medium loads. The same model could, after some small modifications, be produced by injection moulding, offering finer toothing, high strength and robustness.
