Fixies™ are a flexible tie wrap made from Hook-Loop dual, a
new type of hook and loop tape where the hooks are mixed in with the loops so
that it fastens to itself. This makes
the tie wrap infinitely variable in length, “one size fits all”. To fasten, simply pass the Fixie™ around the
items you want to fasten together, pass the end through the plastic slider,
pull tight and fasten the Hook-Loop-Dual (HLD) back on itself. The
plastic slider acts as a small pulley giving you a 2:1 mechanical advantage and
therefore getting it as tight as you need.
If you need the fastener to be really short, like fastening
on a frame bag, attach the fixie and get it tight and then cut off the
excess. TIP: where possible have as much
Hook-Loop-dual touching to give the maximum grip.
For longer straps; fasten
2 or more together by passing the end of Fixie™ 1 through the slider of Fixie™
2 and then fasten the end back on itself, 50mm is the ideal amount to fold back
but you may need more for heavy loads.
By adding straps together you can make them as long as you need. The best part about it is they can then be
reused for something else.
These packs of two are really handy to keep in your tool kit
but if you need more industrial quantities we have them in packs of 10
In the reviews below please feel free to add any ideas of
things you have fastened or ingenious ways of using them. If we include the ideas in our marketing we
will send you a pack of 10 on the house!
