Gear Tie (1 of 3)

As a filmmaker, you know that cables end up on everything and the more cables you add to your rig the more of a rat’s nest it becomes. You can try to twist cables around the frame or use tie wraps, but maybe there is a better way, which is where Gear Tie comes in.

Gear Tie is basically a beefed up rubberized twist tie that’s designed for cable management. Bright colors make it easy to see, and far more reusable than standard trash bag twist ties.

The usefulness of Gear Tie is pretty easy to see. Here I’ve used a few 3 inch Gear Ties to hold down a loose audio cable. It’s clean, easy, and keeps stuff out of the way.

Bundling up groups of cables is also a good use for Gear Tie and if you get really fancy you could probably even support a paper script with this stuff. For a price of $2 to $5 Gear Tie is a pretty handy addition to any cable bag. I’ve ordered a few packs these Gear Tie and I think they’ve earned themselves a place in my kit.
