Cable tie mounts – a complete buyer’s guide

Cable tie mounts – a complete buyer’s guide

Along with nylon cable ties and other accessories, cable tie mounts offer a great solution for cable management. But what are they and how do you use them? Our guide tells you everything you need to know.

What are cable tie mounts?

Cable tie mounts are used to fix cable ties to surfaces such as walls or panels, and are a reliable way of managing systems. They accommodate cable ties of different widths and are available in different designs and sizes. They are ideal for securing multiple cables in one place, for example when the wires are running along a wall, and the type of cable tie mount used will depend on the cables being secured and the surface they are being attached to.

How to use a cable tie mount

Cable tie bases can be secured with a self-adhesive backing or with a screw. Once the mount is in position, a cable tie is threaded through the eyelets of the mount. Position the cable/s in the channel that runs down the middle of the mount before wrapping the cable tie around the cable/s and securing. Any excess can then be removed.

What are cable tie mounts made from?

At cableties-online, all our cable tie mounts are made from nylon 6/6 or marine grade 316 stainless steel.

Nylon cable tie mounts

With the same qualities as our nylon 6/6 cable ties, nylon cable tie mounts offer good resistance to fire and chemicals, corrosion and erosion. A stable product, nylon is durable and long lasting, and has been shown to be sustainable.  

Stainless steel cable tie mounts

Made from marine grade 316 stainless steel, our stainless-steel cable tie bases/cradles offer a working temperature range of -80°C - +538°C making them ideal for use in extreme environmental conditions. Strong and durable, stainless steel cable tie mounts are used in a wide range of heavy industries.
