Tongue & Slot Tags for Electrical Wire Harnesses

What do automobiles, construction machinery, and aircraft have in common? They all have lots of wires inside of them! These wires and cables are all bound together into a wire harness. The cables are bound together by straps, cable ties, electrical tape, conduit, etc., to keep all the wires together in an easy to handle bundle. Wire harnesses make installation of them easier, as well as optimize space. To make sure that you have the correct wires in the harness, or that the harness is correctly put into place, proper identification is key. National Band & Tag’s tongue and slot style tags are perfect for wire harnesses because they come in multiples sizes, and can be customized with your information.

Cable Ties – Wrap Around Styles / Tongue & Slot Styles

cable tiesNeed to organize cables or wire? Need a way of tying them together? Are you required to label cables? Do you need cable markers for security or safety purposes?

We sell Aluminum Cable Ties that come in many styles and sizes to fit your needs. These cable ties come in a tongue and slot pattern or in a wrap around style. The tongue and slot pattern ensures that the tag stays on the wire, cable, pipe, tubing, or hose in use. The wrap around style works just as well, however, these tags utilize fold down flaps instead of a slot and tongue.  These tags can convey the purpose of the wires or a message of caution to ensure safety and so people exercise caution when they see these marked cables. Not to mention, they also keep all your cables, wires, pipes, tubes or hoses very organized.
