    Can anyone tell me what these are called or where I can find them?



    I found some green plastic coated wire at the Home Depot but I'm looking for black and the same kind of coating as the wire shown in the pic.

    It's called a twist-tie.

    No idea where to buy it, but almost every electronic item you buy that has wires comes with some black twist-ties.

    Wow, thanks that was fast, thanks. The reason I ask is because I need these to sell some items on eBay and zip ties tend to leave permanent marks in wire and I don't want that. I took that pic myself but I need more of these, not just one.

    It's too bad these are so hard to find but zip ties are at every hardware store.

    What's wrong with the green ones you found at home depot?
    If it's just for selling items and not for looks...

    $4.09 per thousand How can you go wrong with that.
    Dunno how big 27 guage is but those look like standard twist ties to me...

    I guess it just looks better in the pictures if they are black (I have OCD so they really need to be black). Where did my last post go anyways?

    My understanding is that the lower the gauge number is, supposedly the thicker the wire is.

    You could always get some velcro ties like the ones that some power supplies come with, I saw them at my local hardware store, they come in a pack of like 5.

    That stuff works great and Monoprice is an awesome site. My HT would look like shit if it weren't for that stuff.
