Choosing Right Cable Tie Sizes in 3 Steps: A Simple Guide

Choosing the right size for nylon cable ties is a critical step in ensuring the safety and effectiveness of cable management. This decision involves careful consideration of some key factors. In this guide, we’ll provide a concise overview to help you select the appropriate cable tie sizes for your specific application.

1. Length of Cable Ties

The length of cable ties covers a broad range from 80mm to 1800mm. Choosing the right length not only facilitates operation but also enhances cost-efficiency.

You can start by measuring the circumference of the object you wish to bundle together. Then, select a cable tie that is slightly longer than this measurement. This ensures that the tie will be long enough to securely wrap around the items, while also allowing some room for adjustments or additions to the bundle.

2. Bundle Diameter of Cable Ties

The bundle diameter refers to the maximum circumference that the nylon cable tie can securely wrap around. It’s a critical aspect to consider, as selecting the right bundle diameter ensures that the tie will fit properly without being too loose or too tight.

3. Tensile Strength of Nylon Cable Ties

NIKE Plastic’s standard nylon cable ties offer tensile strengths ranging from 18 lbs (8 kilograms) to 375 lbs (170 kilograms). Selecting the right tensile strength is crucial for the functionality and safety of the ties in various applications. For example, bundling vegetables might require only minimal strength, while securing heavy-duty materials like ropes or cables demands more substantial resistance.

Understanding the specific needs of your project will guide you in choosing the right tensile strength for optimal performance and reliability.


In conclusion, choosing the right nylon cable tie sizes involves careful consideration of the length, bundle diameter, and tensile strength. By taking the time to evaluate the specific requirements of your project and matching them with the appropriate cable tie sizes, you can ensure optimal performance and safety.
