    I found them at our local ACE but it looks like a bunch of places have them. I just tried one and it worked great.

    We're making a run using canopy framing and conduit ( like market traders use ) and were using hose clamps to fix the wire to the frame. They were expensive ($1 ea) and a pain to use. These SS zip ties are much easier and more elegant.

    Pics Please?

    My run is t-posts, conduit and welded wire...I just used lengths of wire twisted around to attach wire to conduit.

    Cool!
    Not sure how close..... every 6" or so?
    Is that 1/2" hardware cloth?
