I was finishing up my Ultrex installation tonight and thought I would share a tip I learned years ago.
For a neat wiring job nothing beats close spaced zip ties. However no matter how close or straight you cut them they end up like mini razor blades. Next time you reach in that compartment they will unzip your skin lickety split.
After I have them installed where I want them, I cut them off close with some side cutter pliers.
You can see the nasty sharp point just waiting to taste some blood. To fix this I grab my propane torch and an old flathead screwdriver. Heat the tip of the screwdriver till hot and then just lightly press it onto the offending point.
It only takes a second to flatten the cut end, I usually melt them just flush with the locking end. Presto! Smooth and no more sliced fingers and forearms.
Do take care with the hot screwdriver and don't melt the zipties so much that you weaken the lock.
Hope this helps!
