Use #33 for a Pocket Knife: Cut Zip Tie Tails


I have an old beater ATV that I’m slowly restoring, or rather trying to keep running for at least a year so I can think about possibly restoring it. A common tool in the arsenal of a beater-ATV mechanic’s tool belt is the zip-tie. Right up there with duct tape and beer, this essential tool is key to attaching whatever has fallen off in your travels. In this particular case I was zip-tieing the battery to the battery tray, which lacked a brace or support on one side. I later backed this shady system up with a rubber bungie that I wrapped around the entire mess.
