would not recommendcan't even figure out how to load the darn thing let alone use it. I will say though that the cats have enjoyed batting around the little ends that keep flying out all over the floor!
Cable Tie ReviewThis tool eliminates buying, stocking several lengths of ties, but I also need heavier ties for certain applications, so it is not a universal cable tie tool. The tool will take some experience to get used to, but then it will be very useful.
Cable Ties are BetterThis is a very cheaply made device...I always wanted one of these but now wish I could return it. The ties do not hold well, getting it threaded is almost as frustrating has completing the tie end. It's terrible..individual ties are much better and easier... Don't waste your money...the device itself is awful, does not hold well and difficult to use..you are better off just joining ties together than buying this because of the long strap potential.

Thank you for your review on the Cable Strapping Gun. We are sorry to hear that you are not happy, and that it is not working properly. It is possible that it is a defective item. Please feel free to send it back using the label which was included. Or, if you'd prefer, you can exchange it for another and hopefully the replacement will fare better.
Cable Tie GunMy son got this for me for Christmas. Initially it seemed to work as promoted. Recently, it seems to jam after every tie, and when trying to correct the jam, multiple locks get ejected. Maybe this is just a defective gun, but at this point I waste more time trying to get one tie done than it is worth.
Cable Strapping GunRecently I purchased a cable strapping gun because I had been looking for one for years. I had one about 25 years ago and used it nearly every day. So, I ordered one and upon delivery, I didn't put it into operation right away but when I did it worked fine to start. After some usage I had a fairly big project securing some electrical wire to the bottom of a wooden fence rail and about one third of the way through the project it started to falter. First, the cable ends would not connect and then when I tried to get a connector in place, all in the gun would shoot out and finally it stopped cutting the cable. I finished my project with many bad words and was mad as hell then. I started to throw the thing away but it was relatively pricy so I took a shot at contacting someone at Garrett Wade and I wrote a nasty review. After the nasty review and a nasty email to Garrett Wade, I felt better and was going to throw the thing in the garbage because I never expected to hear from anyone. HOLY NO EXPECTATIONS BATMAN!!! About two days maybe only one, I got an email from Susan M who expressed surprise at my problem and stated that GW had sold many of these items with no trouble or complaints. The next thing, knocked my socks off. She instructed me that GW was sending me a replacement, no questions asked, and no need to send the old one in. She was convinced that I simply got a bad unit. After a short period of time because of a backorder of the item, it was delivered was a test certification from a tech who had actually used the unit and wrote me a note certifying such. I have had the replacement about a month now. I have used it at least 20 times with no problems at all. Awesome!! In conclusion, you made me impressed because of Susan's response and follow up to what could actually be called a minor problem and I probably would have thrown it away. I am a happy camper and a lifelong customer of Garrett Wade. Thanks Susan for doing a great job on something this minor.

Piece of CrapThis is a good idea that does not work or at least mine didn't. The ties all shoot out, don't line up and the cutter doesn't cut. I became very good at manipulating this thing with my first and last usage today. For the price, it's a joke but a good idea. Don't buy this item.
Wire Tie GunVery handy device that does not waste any of the loop material. You can control the tension by pulling back on the loop material where it enters the gun. The locking blocks can also be recycled if you ever cut to loop material off.
