Metric cable ties can use?


<R7> Hi

In China, cable ties are usualy only available in 10cm (3.9") 20cm (7.9") and 30cm (11.8") lengths. (Note: inches are rounded to the nearest tenth)

Are 10cm cable ties legal for use instead of 4" ties? Are 20cm or 30cm ties legal instead of 11" ties?


Answered by committee

10cm and 30cm zip ties would be legal replacements for 4" and 11" zip ties. Replacement zip ties must closely match the width and thickness of the VEX zip ties, and may not add additional functionality that is not provided by standard VEX zip ties.
