The right CableWrap for the right cable

The right CableWrap for the right cable

Choosing the right Velcro strap for the right cable is not as simple as it sounds.

 

Here is a little guide to help you choose the most appropriate CableWrap for your needs.

 

The following recommendations are based on mating the full length of the hook section of the CableWrap in order to achieve maximum strength.

Coil
Two important parameters are the diameter of the cable and the diameter of the section of the coil once rolled up. These two elements must be taken into account in choosing the most appropriate size of CableWrap.
The table given below is only a subjective guideline. Experience will show that the values may be variable.
