I’ve been using zip ties to secure cables between my light and pressure switch on my AR15. My home def AR is new and after practicing I need to move ■■■■ around (foregrip, light, and pressure switch). Rather than getting more zip ties I was thinking about these Ranger Bands I heard about but I’m not sure which size to get. Has anybody used them to secure cables between a weapon light and pressure switch and if so what size did you find best? Thanks! - J
Zip ties for me, they are cheap and easy to snip if i want to move it. I buy them in a bulk variety pack and use them all over the house ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
The below isn’t the answer you are looking for, but… (they also have picatinny)
Thanks Harvey, those are cool. I may have to give those some consideration. I actually have a big bag of the small zip ties; I think a moment of laziness just made me think about the ranger bands. LOL
I prefer zip ties. They are lighter and less bulky. I find it easier to cinch them down to exactly the size I want, as in, exactly as tight/close as I want without putting unnecessary pressure on switch cables that are not necessarily known for durability in general. I just got a huge plastic cylinder with hundreds in different sizes for general use.
Ranger bands for me are for, say, storing a sling tidy to the rifle when in the safe, or holding first aid supplies together when assembling my own ‘kit’
Good points as well Nathan. I was taking stock of one of my rifles today and the pressure switch connections going into the light are not the most secure things in the world. I can see how a rubber band could put too much pressure and pull them out. Not good, especially if you’d don’t realize it happened.
