ADABOX 020 - Zip tie size

by petronivs on Wed Nov 17, 2021 10:29 am

It appears that I am one of those who got larger-than-recommended zip ties, so I'll have to grab some replacements.

What size zip ties are recommended for the glasses?

My box had two different sizes of zip ties.

The thin zipties I have that work well for the glasses are ~2.45mm wide.

It's too bad most zip tie packaging doesn't have width listed on them.

Those muggles must have no idea that their products are being repurposed by techno-mages on a regular basis.

I guessed right at the hardware store with some short ties that are rated for 18 lbs.

Hi Folks,
I just trimmed the length of the larger zip tie to fit the slot in the circuit board with a pair of scissors . It had enough grip.
